Hi,

Eating out of hotels will surely give you a change and it all depends on the area that you plan to stay. Plenty of places to eat in Colombo and the night life is much better in Colombo than most outside locations though there will be some entertainment to cheer you up. Negombo is also a place where you get many restaurents outside where you will also be provided with good entertainment with music etc.. Other than that, there are some hotels down south where you will need to take a bus or a tuk tuk to reach a restaurent to eat out.

This is in general but if you can be specific of the location and the hotel that you plan to stay, we maybe in a better to position to help you out.

Cheers!

Treshi.

Good areas for this south of Colombo are limited: Beruwala/Bentota, Hikkaduwa and Unuwatuna have a big scene and Mirissa and Tangalle a smaller one.

All the best,

We found the choice of food available was poor compared to goa...no beach shakes here.... you get charged for everything....sunbeds etc....

The touts are a pain.
