The cosmopolitan city of Colombo, the commercial capital of Sri Lanka can rival any capital city in the world. The largest city in the island, it offers you everything from business opportunities, banking facilities, entertainment and shopping to sports. The city’s attractions include the Fort area (the country’s business centre), Galle Face Green (a seafront lawn ideal for an evening stroll), Cinnamon Gardens (with its swanky mansions and tree-lined streets), the Colombo National Museum, the zoological gardens at Dehiwala, trendy shopping malls and ancient colonial architecture which still survives.
