Colombo is without a doubt the busiest city in Sri Lanka, and one might think that it is not a place to explore or relax during a holiday. However, this buzzing metropolis holds many surprises for you, so get ready to discover some great places to visit during your stay.
Visit Galle Face Green!
One of the top attractions closely located near some of the best hotels in Colombo, Galle Face Green is only a few minutes away from hotels like Mandarina Colombo. You can enjoy the sunsets, beach, and the sound of the waves while munching on some local snacks such as isso wade and cassava chips.
Known for its stunning statues of Lord Buddha and the lake view, the Gangaramaya Temple will be the ideal place to soothe your body and soul. You can also take a clear look at the Colombo skyline from here and capture some stunning pictures while you’re here. Make sure to maintain good behaviour and not disturb the Buddhists who worship the temple.
Mount Lavinia Beach
If you want to find some fun places to hang out while enjoying the sea views and a great cocktail, Mount Lavinia beach is the perfect destination for you. You will encounter some cute cafes and restaurants with good food, music, and great service while you sit back and relax. Don’t forget your sunscreen and summer dresses as Mount Lavinia beach is quite popular and a great place to take pictures!
