Take a break from daily monotonous routine and plan holidays to Sri Lanka. The Asian country is dotted with attractive places like tea estates, waterfalls, gardens and heritage places. Let me bring to you a sneak peek of Sri Lanka tourism. The majority of the population in Sri Lanka is Sinhalese while Tamils, Muslims, Malays and other minorities are also a part of the local community.


"What Mumbai is to India, Colombo is to Sri Lanka," a Sri Lanka Tourism Board (SLTB) official told us at the Bandaranaike International Airport. Few Indian honeymooners would make an unplanned trip to Sri Lanka. Ours wasn't completely unplanned. Having gone through hotels recommended by the Lonely Planet at a bookstore in Male, we pondered over stopping for a day in Colombo before heading back to Mumbai. Once we got through the immigration counters with a day's visa, we headed to Sri Lanka's commercial capital.


Gem and Jewellery stores are a dime a dozen in Colombo. Sri Lanka is famous for sapphires, red rubies, cat's eye, zircons, tourmalines, garnets, topaz and amethysts gems, whilst the designs you will find will vary from traditional to modern. Popular jewellery stores in Colombo include; Alankara, Bullion Exchange, Careems, Colombo Jewellery Stores, Ridhi Design Studios and Sifani.


One of the most famous land marks and sites to see in Colombo is the Beira Lake. On this lake, there is a chance that visitors can see the many boat races that are hosted in its waters. The banks of the lake is also used as a theater of any kind, from comedy to tragedy. The lake has been around as long as the city has, and it has always been a favorite. Colonists used it for defense of the city in the past.


Srilanka is round-the-year destination. The only way to reach Sri Lanka is via air. The international airport in Colombo welcomes direct flight from Australia, Europe, Middle East and other Asian countries. Also, a number of flights are operated between Colombo and India cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Trichy, Thiruvananthapuram etc.
