Colombo City

Colombo is Sri Lanka’s commercial and cultural capital and is located on the western coast of the island. The city has served as an important commercial port city since ancient times and has been the scene of many prominent historical moments.

Heavily influenced by its diverse populace and its rich history, Colombo’s culture, architecture, cuisine and historical attractions make for a multicultural melting-pot. Ancient traders came to its ports to gather ivory, precious stones and spices such as cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and pepper. European colonists occupied the city for centuries as well due to its strategic location on an important trade route.

All these cultural and historical influences give Colombo its unique flavour. In modern times the city is home to a diverse group of communities which adds to its splendour and is still known as a shopper’s paradise.

Experience the true colour of Colombo and feel its heartbeat by exploring a variety of attractions as well as interacting with its vibrant people.

  1. Nice people and great street food. Amazing Experience

    We went on a city walk in Colombo with our guide Sunny, and I must say it was an unforgettable experience. The city walk was a perfect blend of history, culture, and cuisine, offering a comprehensive understanding of Colombo's rich heritage and vibrant present. We were able to taste different type of food, a bit spicy though and it was fabulous. We went and explored every corner of the city which we could not see when traveling in a Car.

    The city is in a building boom with construction cranes and new hi-rises all around the town. Temples, Old Parliament, President's house, Independence Square, and town hall are worth a visit. Great overview of Colombo.

    The city walk in Colombo was an enriching experience that allowed me to delve into the city's rich history, diverse culture, and mouth-watering cuisine. Our guide was knowledgeable and shared many insights with us. Very informative and gained a lot of knowledge. We were taken to the Pettah Market, a bustling bazaar that showcases the city's diverse cultural influences. The vibrant colors, aromatic spices, and lively atmosphere made for a truly immersive experience.
