Colombo, Sri Lanka’s buzzy commercial capital. Some parts raw and rustic, others significantly (and ever increasingly) more polished. While in years gone by luxury meant Colonial, a modern nuance has swept across the City in recent years.
In the ever growing international foodie scene of Colombo, Thai food is certainly having a moment. Especially popular with local residents with a penchant for spice, the ginger & lemongrass infused fragrances of Thai dishes can make a nice change in the City from the finest village style Sri Lankan rice and curries beyond.
Colombo is an ever growing city in Asia, buzzing with an alluring combination of the new and the old; offering culture, shopping, restaurants, charismatic boutique hotels and so much more.
