My boyfriend and I are visiting Sri Lanka in 4 weeks time and we're keen to visit the capital but we've heard that there have been a high number of terrorist attacks in the capital since the start of the year.
Is it safe to visit Colombo? If we visit what should we do to avoid getting into problem areas? Are there certain bits of Colombo that are more prone to attack? Are trains more dangerous to travel in than cabs etc? What do people advise?
