Colombo Sri Lanka

Colombo is not waiting for anyone in its quest to be the glittering jewel in South Asia’s crown. It’s an exciting place to be in because development is happening so fast. Through the dust clouds rickshaws leave in their wake, you can make out cars and taxis busily rushing through the city’s streets. They’re delivering high-flying executives to meetings in flashy new offices, and more tourists than ever to the growing spread of luxury department stores, hotels and restaurants.

But it’s not all fast cars and skyscrapers in the capital. Stay a while, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to escape the frenzy and find peace. There are beaches close at hand, boutique retreats to discover and leafy green boulevards for whiling away lazy afternoons. This city, you see, is the best of both worlds.
