It is most likely that you will arrive at the Bandaranayake International Airport. While most tourists head straight to the capital city, it would be worth visiting the beach town of Negombo. It’s the closest city to the airport and is truly a blissful one!
Stay at one of the beautiful resorts (there are plenty by the way!) to enjoy the breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean. It’s a great spot to relax and learn about a new city before heading towards Colombo which is only about 30 kilometers away.
