No golf holiday is complete without taking in the local sights of the place in which you are playing. Colombo, in Sri Lanka, has many attractions which will keep you busy and entertained away from the golf course.
Colombo is the capital city of Sri Lanka and boasts an array of magnificent architecture. The Gangarama Vihara is one of the most stunning temples in the country and you could spend hours walking around the stone carvings and Buddhist artwork.
If you are interested in seeing local nature, Dehiwala Zoological Garden is a top Colombo attraction to visit. The landscaped gardens are full of native flora and fauna and plays host to a vast array of mammals, birds, reptiles and fish.
If you would like to sample some of the best seafood in Colombo, head to Mt Lavinia Beach. This is a relaxed suburb of Colombo and features a great choice of seafood restaurants along the sandy beach, making it a great place to eat following a round of golf.
If you are feeling the heat in Colombo and fancy a few thrills and spills, take a trip to Leisure World. This is the first amusement and water park to be built in Sri Lanka and there are several water rides and pools. Both adults and children can enjoy the park, which makes it a great choice if you are booking a Colombo golf holiday with the family.
Finally, if you would like to get to know the history of Colombo and Sri Lanka you must visit the National Museum of Colombo. Here you will find information and relics from Sri Lanka’s long and interesting development into the country we see today.
