Plan Your Colombo Holiday

The best time to book your tickets to Colombo is between December and March to avoid the unsettled rainy seasons. During these months there should be plenty of opportunity for swimming and other outdoor activities as it is the area’s dry season.

When looking for cheap hotels in Colombo it may be more advisable to go closer to the middle of the year when it will still be reasonably dry but the city will be less busy than it gets in peak season.
