The city is small, but is a great way for travelers to get acquainted with Sri Lankan culture. I had the pleasure of staying at the Cinnamon Lakeside Hotel (previously known as the TransAsia Hotel), and I can attest to its modern, elegant décor and thoughtful staff. Restaurants in Colombo proved to be diverse and delicious. Expatriated restaurateurs have helped revamp the dining scene, and prices seem to be fair across the board. Unlike restaurants, finding worthwhile nightlife venues proved to be a bit more challenging.
