Colombo Sri Lanka is a city of many delights. Overcrowded and noisy it’s probably not the perfect cup of tea for everybody. But if you look beyond the ordinary you’ll easily see why people love this place. The colourful Pettah bazaars, ultra modern buildings, suave boutiques and eclectic restaurants, elaborate eastern temples, Dutch period architecture and the happening nightclubs are just some of the attractions of this multi-faceted city.
lf you’re the adventurous kind of person then the best way of exploring the city is probably by the hair-rising tuk tuks which are small and easily wind their way through the traffic by honking loudly and making their presence felt_ Take a stroll through the broad avenues of Cinnamon Gardens in Colombo 07 to catch a glimpse of the lifestyles of the rich. Or if you’re the kind of traveller who wants to immerse yourself in the culture of the country you visit, then Mount Lavinia the laid-back colonial Colombo suburb by the beach, or Wellawatte also known as Little Jaffna will give you plenty of opportunity to do so.
