Colombo, Sri Lanka Overview

Formerly known as Ceylon, Sri Lanka means "Resplendent Land," an apt description for this beautiful island. Sri Lanka lies fifty-five miles north of the equator, just off the southern tip of India. With its unique beauty, warm climate and near-perfect beaches, Sri Lanka is one of Asia's most adored destinations. Since the sixteenth century, the Portuguese, Dutch and British have all left their architectural and cultural marks in Sri Lanka's capital of Colombo. Yet despite its colonial architecture, Sri Lanka has always remained Oriental in spirit, with colorful bazaars, dancing elephants, graceful women in saris, and many Buddhist shrines and temples.

Our excursion was private and we went out to the Pinwala Elephant Preserve and had a blast. Even got to feed the elephants. They would walk right up to you if you had fruit in your hands. Last trip we did Colombo, so we want to get out of town and worth it.

A free excursion as seightseeing is OK. But there are a lot of beautiful places to see in Sri lanka

The port offered a large range of stalls right next to the ship. We didn’t do a tour
