Colombo, Sri Lanka’s capital, its biggest city and port. The cosmopolitan face of the country, it is also the financial and commercial capital of the country. Walk through its streets and the colonial buildings speak of a time bygone. But then walk into the next street, and the latest brand stores, apartments, and snazziest cars catch your eye, indicating the coming together of two different eras, the rise of a nation. When in Colombo, visit the national museum if you want to understand the country’s history. Chill at the Galle Face Promenade with your loved one in the evening, or just roam the street bazaar at Pettah and mingle with the locals.

She boasts of having a cluster of 64 small islands scattered along her path and the most of which are uninhabited and covered with mangroves. The smallest islet of the lot is called “Satha Paha Doowa” where there is a tiny shrine with a statue built in respect of the gods of Kataragama (Katharagama). According to folklore this islet had been purchased for five cents but some say the name has derived due to its shape of the five cent coin. Madu is certainly a placid and memorable place of interest to any nature lover who longs to witness mesmerizing landscape of the nature. But over thrilled visitors are forewarned! – Madu River is also a known den for crocodiles.
