Colombo Holidays,a Once in a Lifetime Experience.
A City That Comes to Life
Colombo is one of Sri Lanka's hot spots bursting with life, colour and flavour. It is the capital of Sri Lanka - once ruled by the Portuguese, Dutch and British. The historical link to these rulers is evident in the city's architecture. During the day the busy streets are a wash of colour, with a rainbow array of saris and parasols as locals and visitors go about their day. All set against the backdrop of beautiful sunshine. Culture lovers will enjoy all this city has to offer, with many restaurants and markets scattered around the city.
The best time to visit Colombo is all year around. Temperatures are generally steady between 26-32 degrees across the island. High season for travel tends to be between December and March. The city is home to many magical and spiritual buildings and museums. Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara is Sri Lanka's famous Buddhist temple an attraction, and a must-see. Lord Ganesha, the Hindu God of wealth and prosperity can be found in the temples along Sea Street. Art lovers will find the National Gallery of Art located in Viharamahadevi Park, also home to the National Museum.
