Your airline only will be able to tell you that whether they provide you accommodation. The are few AC Day rooms available on Colombo Airport for transit travellers, but they need to be booked in advance. Just search the web or post on the forum, if anybody knows it. Also one question - Will you also need a TRANSIT visa to stay on airport. Just check.

Travel Tips for Colombo

National Flag of Sri Lanka

by xuessium

The flag as can be seen attached consists of a red(dish) rectangular panel bordered yellow containing a yellow lion passant holding a sword upright and four pipul leaves, one in each corner, and next to the hoist two vertical stripes, green and orange, also bordered yellow together.

The design of this flag has evolved gradually in an attempt to achieve national unity since the country, then known as Ceylon, gained its independence from Britain in 1948. Originally, the flag's central emblem was a gold lion and sword on a red field, derived from the flag of the Sinhalese kingdom of Kandy. As a consequence, it was not popular with the minority groups in the country, and so was amended in 1951 to include a green and orange band, to represent the Muslim and Tamil communities respectively. Finally, when the country adopted the local name of Sri Lanka in 1972, the flag was modified once more, with four leaves of the Pipul tree, a Buddhist symbol, added to the four corners of the dark red panel. This version of the flag was in official use from 1978.

The lion emblem of the Kingdom of Kandy comes with special meanings:
* The eyes - Vigilance and Forward Vision of the State
* The hair brushed in the forward direction - Bravery
* The sword - defense of the homeland and implementation of the laws of the land. (In some older Kotte era flags, the sword was replaced with a Whip)
* The multiple lines of hair seen on the head of the lion - Nobility
* The Equality of height between the head and the tail - The equality between the ruler and the rules.
* The strong paws of the lion - The strength of the Sri Lankans
* The Four Temple finales (or koth) - Buddhism being the national religion of Sri Lanka Extracted from Flags Of The World

CINEMA POSTERS

CINEMA POSTERS
Indian cinema is in Colombo what USA cinema for us... is everywhere! This huge posters in the streets are worth a stop and even a photo. They are hand-painted, with colourful images. I didn't understand the titles, but they looked like 'Rambo 14th' or something similar...

Bring your own toilet paper as...

by Tenzin

Bring your own toilet paper as the local people believes that water cleans best. (It's true and every Muslim will vouch for it). The trouble is you don't find soap around especially in rural areas. They solve the problem by eating with the right hand and wiping their bottoms with the other. Even left handers do that.

Have plenty of small change ready. Virtually all tourist and historical sights have reasonably good guides and the going rate is about US$1 or more per person.

Do not take photos with your back facing the Buddha statue. It is considered extremely rude.

Respect The Cultures and Traditions

by nuelo

Shaking of hands is the normal form of greeting. It is customary to be offered tea when visiting but it you refuse It is considered very rude. Please note that when visiting Buddist temples, modest clothing should be worn. ie no bare legs or uncovered hair. Shoes and hats should be removed
