Meet Negombo

Colombo, 06 May, ( The Sri Lanka Convention Bureau (SLCB) along with the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau (SLTPB) and SriLankan airlines are planning a series of activities including food festivals and beach festivals to place Negombo as a tourist destination and a venue for Meetings and Incentives par excellence. To initiate this exercise, a short promotional film, Meet Negombo, which depicts the area as a city of much activity has been developed, to be distributed during all local and overseas promotional activities including country promotions and road shows.

Situated in close proximity to Colombo and the Bandaranaike International Airport, Negombo has its charm as well as convenience to lure the tourist to its fold.

It provides the ideal get-away for the busy traveller who can within minutes of arriving in Sri Lanka, be in the relaxing atmosphere of the sun, sea, and sand experience. Moreover, its charm lends itself as a hotspot for MICE activities, creating an ideal business with leisure experience, with almost no travel time.

Situated just 6 km away from the airport, many star-class luxury hotels including ayurvedic spas to yoga to aerobics and games as well as excursions on bicycle, horse back or by boat are on offer in Negombo. The hotels are also well equipped to cater to large or small groups with gourmet cuisine including an array of seafood on offer.

Not only offering relaxation, the vicinity of Negombo is also ready to lure in the nature lover. Muthurajawela, which borders the city, is a renowned natural habitat with much diversity, including many species of birds and plant life.

A snippet of history, in terms of the ruins of the old Dutch fort and the Dutch canal giving an insight into ancient times are also special attractions. Furthermore, for the slightly more adventurous, the day to day life of the fisherfolk also provides an interesting diversion.
