Colombo is the busy capital city of Sri Lanka. Associated with the hustle and bustle that comes with being a working city, Colombo is not one of Sri Lanka’s premier tourist destinations. Because it acts as a major transportation hub, though, Colombo does offer visitors plenty of adventures and accommodations, and the visitors who do visit get an authentic peak into Sri Lankan life. Local cuisine can be found at bars, restaurants, sidewalk cafes and kiosks. Waterfront parks allow locals and travellers alike to play cricket, fly kites or simply stroll. A coastal city, Colombo is a beautiful city despite its chaos. In addition to scenic beauty, impressive museums, buildings and churches attract the attention of tourists and are certainly worth seeing if you have the time.

We had the opportunity enjoy the best restaurants and night clubs in Sri Lanka. Haus restaurant in Mount lavinia serves amazing sea food and R & B night club was happening. Our agents green lanka travel was great in guiding us to these places and making sure we safely in our hotels after drinking.
