Many visitors will appreciate Colombo’s colonial heritage, its fine dining and shopping opportunities, and the dash of urban buzz in an overwhelmingly rural country. Others will tire quickly of the diesel fumes and the modern buildings on Galle Rd, the city’s main artery. If you’re only on a short trip to Sri Lanka, you may wish to pass by Colombo, but if you have the time – say at least two days – there are plenty of cultural and historical attractions.

Colombo is the political, economic and cultural center of Sri Lanka, so if you need to extend your visa or buy a plane ticket, you’ll find yourself here. The city was the scene of quite a few bombings during the war years, but security has been relaxed since a cease-fire was declared and peace talks began. It will be the best place to do all your last minute shopping as at some famous shopping arcades and showrooms. Odel unlimited, Liberty plaza complex, Majestic city complex, The house of Fashions, Beverly street, Gem Museum, Laksala handcraft shop, Barefoot, cotton collection, crescent boulevard, are some of the very famous shopping places in Colombo.
