Sri Lanka’s capital offers a wildly contrasting mix of beautiful mansions, gardens and boutiques and wonderfully frenetic roads and street markets. Explore the museums and temples or head to Galle Face Green for a cricket match. If the pace of the city becomes too much, enjoy high tea overlooking the Indian Ocean. Check off your entire gift list with a visit to the Pettah bazaar district for everything imaginable. Just make room in your luggage, or find a new suitcase at the bazaar.
