Colombo Vacations

Experience a mixture of Indian, Dutch, and British cultures during Colombo vacations. The capital of the tiny island nation of Sri Lanka, off the southern coast of India, features ancient culture with modern touches just waiting to be explored.

Major Attractions

Colombo vacation packages give you many cultural places to experience. Start your tour at the National Museum of Colombo, where you can see artifacts dating back millennia. If contemporary art is more your style, tour local galleries in the city center. Visit the Gangarama Vihara Temple to explore stone carvings and brass Buddhist art. There are numerous churches and temples here to tour, with unique examples of architecture pulling from the different cultures that have occupied the island. Gambling is legal in here, so stay in inexpensive hotels in Colombo to have plenty to spend at the baccarat table. Nature lovers will want to visit Dehiwala Zoological Garden, which has over 30 acres of local flora and fauna.

Recurring Festivals and Events

Celebrating is commonplace in a city of over five million people. There are many festivals to take part in all year. May brings Vesak, Buddhists' biggest festival honoring Buddha's birth, enlightenment, and passing into Nirvana. Streets are adorned in color, and you can enjoy free food from local vendor booths. In August, be sure to check out Colombo rental cars to visit the Kataragama Esala Festival in the south. Over two weeks are spent honoring Shanda, the son of Shiva, on chariots, in water ceremonies, and on a fire walk. In November, you can watch a parade of vintage vehicles, European luxury cars, mounted horses, and festively decorated elephants during the Nalanda Walk, a parade to celebrate the educational endeavors of students.
