City tour and shopping in Colombo*

Colombo is Sri Lanka’s largest city. Colombo Like many capital cities in developing countries Colombo is fast changing its face.

A 100-year-old clock tower and several British built, colonial buildings are still to be seen in the city. The Pettah bazaar sinhalese word “Petta” meaning “outside the fort.” – where one can shop for bargains, Hindu and a Buddhist temple, residential areas where you find the stately homes of the affluent, the Colombo museum, the Bandaranaike memorial international conference hall , the new parliament in Sri Jayawardenapura and the folk art center are some of the places of interest that one can visit to.
