Colombo, Western Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka
Never actually left Colombo airport as was changing plane on way from london to bankok, but good tip is if you have more than 5 hours to wait you can have a room for £10 and get your head down for a few hours. They even call you to wake you up.

Colombo, Western Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka
oh wow! An experience of this calibre is not to be sniffed at. It echos of 3rd world poverty in a city environment but somehow you know its genuine . . .its actually very bizarre. It has masses of hustle bustle mixed with a very quaint overpacked transport system that is barely dragging itself out of the 20th century. I can't wait to return fan-bloody-tastic!

Colombo, Western Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka
I found Colombo terrifying when I arrived there on the bus from Negombo. Every street corner had two soldiers armed with automatic rifles behind a sandbag bunker and there were massive anti-aircraft guns stationed along some streets. I skipped Colombo completely and headed straight down to Hikkaduwa on the south coast. I was in Colombo in March 2008 so the security situation may have changed since then. I'd highly recommend checking out your government's travel warnings though as there were bombs going off left, right, and centre while I was there!
