Info about Negombo

Overview

Negombo, a traditional fishing town, is situated at the mouth of the Negombo Lagoon, Sri Lanka. It is home to a population of about 70,000 residents and is a peaceful and serene getaway. Negombo is also an important trading port and an access point for the Bandaranaike International Airport.  
The city is characterised by a tropical climate which remains humid for most of the year. Summers are hot and winters are chilling. The climate gets very cold during monsoons as well. Winters are the best time to visit the place.
Negombo has been a port town since its inception and was known for its spices, especially cinnamon. However, today the economy is based on tourism and fishing, followed by seafood and the production of ceramics.

Overall Guide : Negombo city is the very close city to Colombo Airport. It will take almost 10 minutes to reach the airport. After having a tired or bored flying hours you can stay in Negomb Beach Hostel and you start your memorable... more journey around Sri Lanka. And before you leave Sri Lanka you can saty and go to airport. And you can go to beach, fishing and visit old Dutch Fort and Dutch canal and second largest fish market in Sri Lanka. From Negombo railway station or main bus stand you can easily go to Kandy, Kalpitiya, Colombo, Galle, Anuradapura.
Not to be missed duch fort , Beach , Fish Market
