If you judge a destination by its vitamin D content and its street cuisine, it’s time to catch some flights to Colombo, Sri Lanka. Sitting oh-so-pretty on the edge of the Indian Ocean, this coastal capital is sprinkled with gorgeous temples and baller beaches. Now, book your flights and hotels in Colombo and hurry to the airport!
We heard you shout, “I plan to float my way through Colombo”, but you’ve got to get there first. Colombo flights touch down at Bandaranaike International Airport, about 32km north of the city centre. Sri Lanka is connected by an impressive fleet of public and private buses, and it’s also quite drivable for visitors.
If you took an overnight flight like a champ, you’ll have first dibs on an awesome day in Colombo, so reward yourself with a darn good cup of coffee in one of the many cafes on Ward Place. Next up, stretch your legs on a walk around Beira Lake.
Landing in the afternoon? Make a beeline for Galle Face Green, where you can sunbathe and sample some of the best on-the-go grub in the city, like kottu roti. Order the fried flat-bread with savoury toppings—from fried cabbage to spiced chicken—yum.
If you’re arriving at night, wear your dancing shoes on the plane, so you can hit the road doing the running man. Bust a move to live tunes in the local clubs. In this sultry climate, everything you drop will be hot!
To bring back local odds and ends and some of the best snacks you’ve ever had, pick up souvenirs from markets and corner boutiques. Exotic spices and handmade art make the perfect gifts to fill holiday swag bags. Plus, you’re sure to snag something you just can’t do without, even if it’s a delicious yellow coconut to devour as you shop. Treat yo’self!
