Colombo, the capital city of Sri Lanka, is definitely a worthy addition for anyone interested in the history and culture of the island. Whilst other areas boast ancient archeological sites, wildlife and glorious beaches, Colombo represents the modern side to the country. Old colonial buildings are slowly being ear-marked for luxury hotel developments and cafes in the future, artists display their work on the streets and in galleries and new restaurants and bars are giving the city an edge of cool.
Essentially Colombo is becoming more cosmopolitan by the day and it doesn't look like it is slowing down any time soon. It is a fun place to be, noteable by the increasing expat community, and although there is the usual craziness of traffic in most areas that is so distinctive of many an Asian city, there are also some areas that are much quieter and even some lovely parks to enjoy. A sundowner at the Galle Face Hotel is a lovely way to end a hard day's shopping, sightseeing and exploring in Colombo.
