Sri Lanka – Colombo

By Gonzalo
This post is part of a series called Trip to Sri Lanka and Maldives

This is a trip suggestion and holiday planner for Sri Lanka and Maldives combined in 12/15 days, putting together some culture, adventure, sightseeing and idilic beaches, with top notch hotels recommendation and major sights to see.

This could be starting directly at Colombo in Sri Lanka for few days, exploring the capital of the former Portuguese Ceilan, before heading to Maldives and it’s beautiful islands on the Indian Ocean.

Sri Lankan Airlines and Oman Air fly from Frankfurt to Colombo for less than 600EUR return trip in economy, or you have also the luxury of Qatar Airways with a connection in Doha for the same price.

In Colombo I can recommend one of the hotels below:

1) For the first two nights on arrival, to make yourself comfortable, kill the jet-lag and explore the city,

2) Then recommend heading south and one of the best recommendations is the Cape Weligama
