On reaching Colombo airport, I met one Sri Lankan Airways executive to ask her if I can go outside the airport. She then asked me whether I had a hotel booking. I said no. She then immediately booked a sea facing room in one of the good hotels in Negombo beach. They even arranged pick and drop car facility to the hotel and buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner at the hotel. All this free of cost. This was something I had never expected and was a complete pleasure to ease my tiredness and jet lag.

I loved the blue water sunny beach. The town reminded me so much of Goa with amazing tall Coconut trees, restaurants and beach sand encompassing narrow streets with colorful dresses clad tourists riding bicycles and bikes. In the afternoon, I decided to go to Colombo city for some shopping and sightseeing. Once you are on street, every 10 minutes auto rickshaw would stop to convince you to sit in his rickshaw for sight-seeing and private massages. I bought some Ceylon tea, Sri Lankan spices and one piece of souvenir.
