If you want to get a mix of traditional heritage and modernity in Sri Lanka, there is no alternative but to visit Colombo. Just as there is traditional stillness, so there is modern brilliance. If he is interested in history, culture, Buddhist philosophy, etc., he leaves a whole day for the National Museum. The National Museum building is very beautiful, probably built during the colonial period. In front of the museum, there is a white meditating Buddha statue under a banyan tree. For those who are interested in Buddhist philosophy, there is much to see, hear and learn all over Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is considered to be the base of the Theravada Buddhist philosophy. Gull Face Green Beach is one of the most notable beauties in Colombo. In addition to the blue sea and the waves of the sea, there are various water sports facilities.
