The commercial and financial hub of Sri Lanka calls you with its arms wide open, to explore the happening city with its old world charm. Wondering what experiences does Colombo has to offer? Well, it has many up its sleeve and they are sure to mesmerise you. The one thing that you can’t miss is to experience Buddhist spirituality and the rich culture of Colombo. There are a number of Buddhist temples in Colombo, but you must visit the Gangaramaya temple even if you cannot visit all, as it is not only a place of Buddhist worship, but also a centre of learning.

Colombo is almost synonymous to a place called House of Fashion, a three-storey surplus outlet, offering an enormous selection at very affordable prices. You will find almost all apparel brands here and the best part is that you can buy them, of course after bargaining and haggling, at around one-third the price. Apart from clothing, it offers a large range of other items such as toys, bath towels, sports goods, baby items and mats. A must visit place, you are sure to get some great deals.

Another memorable experience is to stroll in the beautiful beach of Colombo, especially during sunrise or sunset to capture the mesmerising beauty of nature with golden sands under your feet and the majestic Indian Ocean in front of you. And, since you are on the beach, you might as well try the local fish and seafood specialities.

So, what are you waiting for? Come and explore this wonderful city, filled with unique experiences, just for you!
