Since ancient times, visitors to the beautiful island of Sri Lanka have been prompted by memorable, serendipitous journeys to call the island Serendib and Pearl of the Orient. Colombo, the capital city with a bustling commercial centre, has a long history including a colonial past that harmonises with a rich culture. People of various beliefs also mingle freely despite political differences. Ancient legends, traditions and festivals also live on through its friendly people who welcome you with the traditional Sinhalese salutation "Ayubowan" which is offered by bringing together both palms of the hands close to the heart.
