The city is a jarring mix of old and new, with a central cluster of high-rise office blocks and hotels overshadowing red-tiled colonial-era buildings and sprawling street markets which overflow with high-piled fruit and vegetables, colourful silks and cotton, and deliciously fragrant spices. On its crowded streets stand places of worship, symbolic of Sri Lanka‘s multiethnic heritage: graceful Buddhist viharas (temples), stand close to extravagant temples encrusted with Hindu statuary, along with Muslim mosques with minarets scattered along Colombo’s streets. There is a lively nightlife at a number of International standard hotels, clubs, pubs and dining venues while it is limited mainly to the high-end customer. During the day, Colombo’s colourful street markets, museums and galleries and the lovely Viharamahadevi Park with its beautiful trees, makes it a great place to explore on foot.
