Located on the western coast of Sri Lanka, the city of Colombo blends traditional old-world feel with modern luxury, making it a fabulous tourist destination. Whether you are motoring downtown in a Colombo car rental to view the diverse architecture or dipping your feet into the Indian Ocean at one of the beaches, Colombo is an ideal vacation setting.
It's essential to rent a car in Colombo, Sri Lanka, as the city center is 35 miles south of Bandaranaike International Airport, and you'll want to be free to make your own architectural tour of Colombo. A drive through Colombo is a drive through the history of Sri Lanka, as every country that ever colonized the island can be seen through their influence on the buildings. The Colombo Fort was built by the Portuguese, and the Colombo Dutch Museum highlights the Dutch era, while buildings such as the Presidential Secretariat and the Prime Minister's Office have a British feel. All of these and more can be found close to your hotel in Colombo. Colombo also has a modern World Trade Centre and several native landmarks, such as the Murugu Hindu Temple. If you're in the mood for a road trip, head inland into Kandy—where Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was filmed—or to Ratnapura to gaze at that city's majestic waterfalls. You can also drive down the coast to Galle and tour the Galle fort.
No matter what time of the year you visit, you'll likely find a festival going on. The biggest ones are Buddha's birthday celebration in May and the Sinhala and Hindu Aluth Awurudda' celebration of the Hindu New Year in April. You can also enjoy native seafood and curry dishes in Colombo restaurants or take in a cricket match at the Colombo Cricket Club.
