The Sri Lankan capital, Colombo is the largest city in the country and also the main port, commercial and financial centre. It is a bustling city that is a blend of old and new and visitors will be thrilled with the city’s colonial heritage, fine dining and shopping opportunities, in what is primarily a rural country. There are plenty of cultural and historical attractions to keep visitors busy for a few days, before they head off to one of the islands with their fabulous beach resorts.
