Flights To Colombo

Unassuming Sri Lanka sometimes goes unnoticed, with popular neighbours like India and the Maldives taking all the glory. But it’s got more culture, wildlife and adventure than both of those places—not to mention the incredible food. Skip the well-trodden path and book flights to Colombo, the country’s capital, for a blend of customs even more complex than a cup of Sri Lankan tea.

Getting Around Colombo

You may have heard of the tuk-tuk, an adventure on three wheels. In Sri Lanka they’re called “tri-shaws”, and they’re your new best friend. Hop in a cab for the 30km drive south from Bandaranaike International Airport (CMB) to hotels in Colombo, then tri-shaw it from there. Not in the mood for adventure? Taxis offer a smooth ride city-wide.

When You Land…

In the morning, drop your bags at your hotel and grab a coffee—or more likely a Ceylon tea. When the temples open, just take your pick. Sri Kaileswaram is an impressive Hindu temple, while Gangaramaya Temple is one of the most important Buddhist shrines in the country. Really, you’ll probably spend all afternoon exploring the interesting mix of religions here.

Got one of the Colombo flights arriving in the evening? No worries. The temples are even more impressive at night.

Live Like a Local

Pack a picnic and watch the sunset at Galle Face Green, a huge oceanside park filled with kite flyers, day trippers and food vendors. On second thought, don’t pack a picnic. Just take a walk and order up fresh pineapple, vegetable kottu and fish curry from the food stalls. Looking for more time on the sand? Our Maldives holiday packages, an hour-and-a-half flight west, have you covered.

One thing is guaranteed when you make Sri Lanka your next holiday destination: Wotif will find you the best cheap flights to Colombo on the web. The friendly locals and fascinating heritage you’ll encounter will take it from there.
