SMALL MIRACLE

Day 1:       AIRPORT / COLOMBO

Arrival to Colombo International Airport and meet and welcome by Delux Holidays
representative and guide at the airport arrival lobby.


Transfer from Airport to Colombo.
In the afternoon, do a city tour of Colombo. Colombo like many capital cities in
developing countries is fast changing its face. Almost overnight, skyscrapers arise
from where old buildings once stood. Yet in some parts, the old world charm is
retained. For example, there is a 100-year-old clock tower and several British built
colonial buildings. Other places of interest are the Pettah bazaar - where one can shop
for bargain, a Hindu and a Buddhist temple, residential areas where you find the stately
homes of the affluent, the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall
(BMICH) an outright gift to Sri Lanka from the People's Republic of China.
