Obviously the beach is the most amazing place you should go and don’t forget the delicious street food. beware of the thief’s and gangsters. Do not walk alone in the night. Transportation is on time and easy to find the bus stops. cheap and fresh vegetables are for low price on weekends near the bus station.

Negombo is a crowded town with an absolutely beautiful beach and a lagoon. The weather is normally very sunny and hot. But on the bright side, you will never run out of seafood to eat. Most of residents are Christians and they are very friendly. It is a busy town.

Negombo is a city on the west coast of Sri lanka. Negombo is one of Sri lanka’s most popular resorts. Beyond its sands lies an interesting mix: a colonial-built canal and crumbled fort; a lively fish market, traditional fishing communities, and a wildlife-rich lagoon. The best part is that it is just a short drive from Colombo and offers an amazing coastline lined with palm to its visitors.
