About Colombo

Colombo is the financial capital and largest city of Sri Lanka, a large island nation located directly to the south of India. With its wonderful sandy beaches and tropical location, it certainly is an attention-grabbing city. Thousands of tourists visit its beaches every year. Outside of the monsoon season, which is from May to September, visiting Colombo is pleasant year-round.

Not only the city's coast and beaches, but its many historical and cultural sights await the visitor as well. Chief among them is where the city's past and present come together at the Colombo National Museum. You can also find an extremely quiet and relaxing atmosphere at the Gangaramaya Buddhist temple, Beiar Lake and St. Lucia's Cathedral.

Sri Lanka's capital city, Colombo, located on the southern part of Asia, is known for its Colombo Harbor, which is frequented by many merchant ships. The rivers and canals in the city add a different beauty and naturalness to the city. Sri Lanka is starting to become a tourist center as a result of the renovated and newly opened buildings thanks to the urban transformation that started in the city.

Transportation in Colombo is provided by many different transportation means. The sympathetic three-wheeled vehicles, special to the city, known tuk-tuk serve at short distances. Other transport options include buses, trains and taxis as well as ferries linking India and the city. Bandaranayike Airport connects Colombo with all the cities in the world.

There are buses that travel at certain intervals during the day from Bandaranayike Airport to the city center. Taxis carry passengers to the city center on a busy pace all day.  

Taxi

Taxis are very popular as transportation facilities at the airport are limited and buses, which do not work at night, have long intervals. You need to clearly tell the route you want to go to the driver of the taxi, which you can easily take at the airport exit.

Bus

There is an express route between the city of Colombo and the airport, which can only be used by buses. Thanks to this special road, bus number 187-E3 can reach the city center in half an hour. In order to take the buses in front of the terminal building you need to buy tickets in advance.
