Best ways to kill time in Colombo

Enjoy city’s varied faces

Posted on

Colombo is a fascinating city to explore. It’s a marvellous blend of colonial buildings, historic parks, exciting museums and a bustling atmosphere offering loads of character to the tropical environs.

Chill out at the Beach

The beach is a predominant sight along the coastal roads of Colombo. If you are planning to check into a hotel around this area, do keep in mind that there is also some great budget-friendly accommodation in Colombo located within a comfortable distance from the city but closer to the beach. You can even reserve your stay through booking engines such as Yoho Bed to avoid that last minute crisis.
