Colombo
Colombo is the largest city and commercial capital of Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka has a rich history, dating back to the fifth or sixth century BC. Buddhism was introduced in the third century BC. It is still the national religion and gives the country its unique atmosphere. The Portuguese started nearly 500 years of colonization in 1505. They were replaced by the Dutch and later the British, who led until independence in 1947.

Colombo is a lively and exciting city where part of the joy is just wandering and watching life unfold on the streets. To the north of the city is the Fort District so named because both the Dutch and the Portuguese built forts here. This is the main commercial district where many businesses are located. Amidst the modern buildings, this area also has a distinct colonial feel, with the famous clock tower, the president's residence and a smattering of colonial-era buildings, which hark back to the days of the British Empire.

Cinnamon Gardens, the most exclusive area of Colombo, this is a district of large houses set on shady streets, lined with jacaranda and frangipani. Home too many of the citys most exclusive and trendy bars, shops and restaurants. A stroll round Cinnamon Gardens is a pleasant way to spend a few hours in the city. In the middle of Cinnamon Gardens is Viharamahdevi Park, the city's largest open space.

Sri Lanka is not known for its nightlife, although there are a number of trendy bars that have sprung up in the Fort and Cinnamon Gardens areas of the city. Many of the bars cater for young Sri Lankans, who tend to prefer bar-hopping to staying in one place. There is often live music on weekends. Most of the club life is centred on the large hotels. There is generally a dress code and parties of single men may be excluded. Aim to get there after midnight and be prepared to dance until the small hours.
