Best area to stay in Colombo

The city of Colombo is the commercial capital and largest city of the amazing island of Sri Lanka. With a total population of 753,000 inhabitants, spread across a total territory of 37 km2, it is one of the island´s busiest commercial and financial areas.

 

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. This multi-cultural district offers a unique opportunity to experience the real Colombo.

 

The Kollupitiya market is one of the largest in the city, offering all sorts of goods at reasonable prices, such as vegetables, meat, clothes and even electronic devices. In terms of its cultural offering, the Kollupitiya neighbourhood is home to Sri Lanka´s largest museum; the National Museum, which covers more than 2500 years of history and offers a brilliant insight into both the local culture and the country´s colonial history.

 

The Kollupitiya neighbourhood is also strategically located in terms of visiting Colombo´s other attractions, as the majority of them are within walking distance or easily accessible via public transport.
