Colombo

A coastal city and the heart of Sri Lanka’s commercial district, Colombo is a heady mix of sites, smells, history, heritage and culture. For those arriving late or leaving early, there are a number of brilliant hotels, both in and out of town, for you to break the journey. If time permits, set aside a day or two to explore this port city  and the wonderful array of things to see and do.
