Stretching along the Indian Ocean, Colombo the commercial capital is a city of extravagant colonial architecture, interposed with the modern glass towers of commerce and the sometimes-haphazard architecture of a fast-growing modern city. The bustling streets, traffic, street vendors, colourful shopfronts, spice merchants, and lively street markets offer an invigorating, sometimes overwhelming, and thrilling experience that reminds visitors they are in Asia. If you have a few days to spare, exploring Colombo is well worth exploring. The city offers a wealth of cultural and historical attractions, a vibrant café and restaurant scene, and ample shopping opportunities.
