Colombo

The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Colombo: Kowilawatta Temple (in Balapitiya), Masjid ul Abrar (in Beruwala) and Bentota (Bentota Beach & Diyakawa Water Sports Centre). Spend the 3rd (Thu) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Galle Fort, stop by Chilli Dragon Spice, kick back and relax at Hikkaduwa Beach, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Borella All Saints Church.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Colombo trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Mumbai, India to Colombo is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. Traveling from Mumbai in December, plan for somewhat warmer nights in Colombo, with lows around 28°C. On the 6th (Sun), you'll travel to Kandy.
