First Time in Colombo! Sri Lanka Travel Vlog

It is our first time in Colombo, Sri Lanka and we are so excited to travel in this country with our new scooter, Bumblebee! In our first Sri Lanka travel vlog, we take on the capital city, Colombo. Our first impressions of Colombo were really positive. We found the locals to be incredibly friendly and the city easy to navigate on our bike. In our one day in Colombo we were able to visit Gangaramaya Temple, the Lotus Tower, Pettah Floating Market, One Galle Face Mall, and Galle Face Beach. These are some of the best things to do in Colombo, so if you are looking for places to visit in Colombo we highly recommend you check out these spots!

The city seemed quiet as we drove around to see what Sri Lanka's capital city is like. If you are a foreigner traveling in Sri Lanka, Colombo is a great place to start your travels! With the international airport in nearby Negombo, Colombo is a natural point to start your adventuring from. Although we only had one day in Colombo to explore the city, we did our best to make the most of it and do as much sightseeing as possible. For anyone else traveling to Colombo, we would suggest planning just one day in Colombo because there aren't a huge amount of tourist attractions here and you'll probably want to head South or East quite quickly to take in some of Sri Lanka's most famous sites like 9 Arch Bridge, Adam's Peak, and Coconut Tree Hill!

We have a whole road trip around Sri Lanka coming up, so please hit subscribe to follow along on the incredible adventure!
