With Covid flaring up with new variants almost every quarter, travelling across the world is not the same as it was 5- 10 years ago. Borders keep opening and closing and there are ample vaccine mandates, mask mandates, and green pass validities that travellers around the world will have to follow and comply with. While travelling continues to be challenging, more and more people are inclined towards mindful, serene, and sustainable travels. CNN’s list of best destinations to travel for 2022 includes the vibrant city of Colombo closely followed by other hidden gems in the world like Antigua, Bissagos Island, Chile, Cape Breton, Jordan, and Gabon National park.
Colombo, a bustling city of Sri Lanka is often overshadowed by the southern coast and the hillside of the country. However, this underrated city has much to offer from iconic architectural designs and museums to stylish hotels and modish cafes. Whether you are travelling for business or leisure, a plush city abode like Mandarina Colombo is easily one of the best hotels in Colombo and will give you everything you need from proximity to the city and beautiful vistas to fine dining and world-class comfort. Start your day in the metropolis by sinking your teeth into authentic Sri Lankan cuisine and proceed to admire the city architecture and treat yourself to a little shopping spree. To round off your tour around this exquisite city why not sit by the Galle face Greene and bask in the beautiful sunset while sipping a sundowner?
