Tips and tricks

  • Colombo is beautiful at any season. But from January to March, warm and dry weather will allow you to combine a beach holiday with sightseeing. Choose these months to have a perfect holiday!
  • You should always bargain at local markets. Express surprise by shaking your head: show the seller that the cost is too high! Offer a price which is two times less than the initial one and then gradually increase it until the seller agrees.
  • If you are thirsty, don’t buy bottled water. Try King coconut (i.e. Thambili) which can be found everywhere in Colombo. It will improve your digestion and speed up your metabolism as well.
  • Be sure to try curry rice, hoppers (rice flour pancakes), and kottu roti (chopped flatbread fried with eggs and vegetables).
