Southern City of the Beaches

Colombo, one of the largest cities in Sri Lanka, is also the country's commercial capital. Situated on the western frontiers of the island country, Colombo was once known as the Garden City of the East. Also called Ceylon during the British's colonial rule, Colombo has grown into a major trade center today.

Being a natural harbor, it was frequented by Greeks, Indians, Persians, Romans, Arabs, and Chinese merchant traders since over two millennia and was also ruled by the Portuguese, the Dutch and finally by the British. This has resulted in the city becoming a potpourri of acquired cultures.

Must-visit attractions in this city include National Museum, Old City Hall, Galle Face Green, Wolvendaal Church, and Viharamahadevi Park.

For the Indian Traveler

Since this city and its population are influenced and populated by Indian expatriates it is impossible to not feel right at home as local culture, cuisine, and religious beliefs have become quite similar over the years.

Visas have to be obtained either online or through a local embassy with tourist Visas having a general validity of 30 days, beyond which they have to be extended.
