Hotels in Colombo
Colombo is Sri Lanka's largest city, with a modern, metropolitan ambience and clear European influences. As a port town and former British colony, it's a popular gateway to the rest of the country. Colombo's own charms are out in force, from its scenic waterside developments, to its tropical climate all year round.
The city's rapid modernisation has seen the facilities and quality of all Colombo hotels increase. Your options – almost all with waterside views – include a Hilton and a Grand Oriental.
The city's public transport network is extensive, with bus stops and rail stations criss-crossing the map. On the Coastal Line, you can get to Mount Lavinia for the ‘Golden Mile' of sandy beaches, as well as Sri Lanka's National Zoological Gardens.
Colombo is ‘fenced off' on the north side by the Kelani River. With the entire west border of the city running down the coast and Beira Lake in the middle, it has more of an island atmosphere. There are regular ferry services to India via Mumbai and Chennai.
Sightseeing in Colombo
A visit to the sprawling harbour is not to be missed. The Port of Colombo is the busiest in both Sri Lanka and the whole of South Asia. The harbour itself is very industrial, yet there are also many tourist attractions around such as the Colombo Lighthouse.
The Colombo Fort Clock Tower is a former lighthouse and one of the Colombo Fort area's main landmarks.
The centre of the city is known as the Slave Island area or Colombo 02. The name dates back to colonial times. It's a very multicultural side of Colombo, with plenty of shopping centres and the Hindu Subramaniya Temple. The temple is also close to the Masjidul Akbar mosque, representing the area's substantial Muslim population.
Sri Lankan food
Many trademark Sri Lankan dishes use coconut and a blend of strongly scented spices. Alongside regional styles, curries in particular are staple dishes throughout the country. It's unlikely you'll see a Sri Lankan restaurant without ‘parippu' – dhal, a lentil curry – on the menu, which is definitely worth a try.
Colombo is packed with restaurants, so if you're in the mood for something a bit different, it's not hard to find. Pick up Chinese or Japanese food, or discover the influence of the city's links to Tamil Nadu with some South Indian cuisine.
