What is there to do in Colombo at night?
Here's few of the best Colombo night life hangout spots you MUST try and the latest additions with no doubt spectacular.
Is Colombo safe?
Colombo is generally considered a fairly safe city. However, problems with corruption and bribery, petty thefts and robberies are still a problem here. In recent years, the situation has even worsened. But this does not stop travelers from coming here to enjoy the local flavor.
How many days do you need in Colombo?
While a week just might be enough for you to explore a mixture of the prevalent places, we suggest doing at least a minimum of 10-14 nights to get the most out of your trip. In this case you could also spend some time indulging in exciting adventure activities or cultural experiences.
One of the best areas to stay in Colombo is the Kollupitiya neighbourhood. This area has undergone recent changes, transforming from an area predominantly known for its colonial brewery, to what is now one of the most important commercial neighbourhoods in Colombo, full of restaurants, hotels, shops and street venders.
Generally, there is not a lot of crime against tourists here, but taking the usual precautions will usually keep disaster at bay. Don't walk the streets late at night or alone. Don't keep all of your valuables with you at the same time or exposed in public.
