About the City
Colombo, the unofficial capital of Sri Lanka, is situated in the western part of the island, on the coast of the Indian Ocean. Its diverse, exuberant atmosphere makes it a must-stay city, not to mention the fascinating combination of styles, from colonial to modern. One side of Colombo is marked by the legacy of the Portuguese, Dutch and English, with monuments, churches and old mansions harking back to the colonial period. The other is a bustling metropolis with large shopping centres, 5-star hotels and nightclubs. Visitors should definitely take a stroll through Viharamahadevi Park, whose entrance is adorned with a large metal statue of a seated Buddha. The newly arrived can quench their thirst for knowledge about this ancient land by paying a visit to the more-than-a-century old NatioCMB Museum of Colombo, with its treasure trove of secrets. Also worth a visit is the local zoo, with its unique daily elephant show. Once acquainted with Colombo, travellers are well advised to take a magical trip across Sri Lanka, with walking tours through the emerald tea plantations, sunbathing on the golden beaches, and further immersion in the warm, beguiling sights, sounds and smells of the local environment.
