Colombo Holiday Packages

The natural harbour in Colombo, Sri Lanka, made it a top trade spot for Greece, India, Persia, Rome and China for centuries, but we think it’s time for you to become familiar with this country’s largest city.

With all the deals in Colombo we have available, you can stay on the waterfront, downtown or in the smaller Capital Zone suburbs. Toss on your travel cap and go now.

Things to Do in Colombo

Kick off your Colombo holiday package the moment you land. Make your way to the Indian Ocean on the border of the Galle Face Green for a refreshing dip. The green is a great place to relax in between swimming and people-watching. Families like to bring the kids down for kite flying, pick-up soccer matches and to purchase various goods from the vendors who crowd the area. When your time at the green is up, get a feel for the city’s history at the National Museum of Colombo. Some of the most important items of Sri Lanka’s past are housed here, such as the crown and throne of the Kandyan monarchs. Are you looking for inner peace? Pay a visit to the Gangarmaya Temple, one of the most important Buddhist shrines in the country.

Want to explore beyond the city limits? Wotif’s Colombo car hire options are perfect for getting you to the Capital Zone suburbs. Places like Nawala, Nugegoda and Rajagiriya are where you should head if you want to escape the busy city for a day. But if you want even more seclusion, check out our Maldives holiday packages to spend time on distant islands.

Shopping, Dinning & Nightlife

Sri Lankan cuisine is more than delicious, and there’s no better place to discover this than at the Pagoda Tea Room. Remember the Duran Duran video for ‘Hungry Like the Wolf’? That was filmed here. Of course, the tea is good, but wait until you try the rice and curry. Three or four specially made curries of the day should make their way onto your rice mountain, leaving you stuffed. Ah, the joys of eating on Colombo holidays.

Are you ready to walk through Colombo’s main market and experience everything from Tamil to Muslim cultures? The streets of Pettah Market are where you go to find more electrical goods than an electronics store, Ayurvedic medicine that may or may not cure all, and jewellery shops selling sapphires so cheap you’ll pinch yourself. Sorry, these aren’t included in Colombo packages.

This is a city full of excitement, so naturally there’s plenty to do when the day turns to night. Head over to the QBaa, which is generally considered one of the best places to view live music in the city. Sangria and champagne cocktails flow like raging rivers. If you pick the right night, you’ll be able to groove to some of the popular local bands.

What’s Next?

Now it’s time for you stop reading and start booking. With Wotif’s packages to Colombo, you’ll be able to reserve accommodation anywhere—so stop dreaming and start packing!
