Colombo

The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
Start off your visit on the 20th (Wed): take a spin around town with Red Dot Tours and then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of St. Michael & All Angels, Polwatte.

Kandy

Nestled between mountains in inland Sri Lanka, Kandy proudly bears its World Heritage Site designation while remaining culturally independent and colorfully picturesque.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Udawattekele Sanctuary and Ceylon Tea Museum. Your inner history buff will appreciate Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic and Kandy Garrison Cemetery. There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of Kandy War Cemetery, admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanical Gardens, contemplate the waterfront views at Kandy Lake, and look for gifts at Jayamali Batiks Studio.
