    You have to check out the fantastic traditional dancer at Kandy!
    They show traditional dancing and that sure is a must to see.
    This picture shows a dancer who walks on glowing coals. Well, some of the people in Sri Lanka do strange things to their body. I guess you know what I'm talking about. Think of tongues and knifes and...

    There's a great club in Colombo at the Hilton Hotel (I thinks it's called the White Elephant).
    There are no regulations on capacity, so it's packed and stays that way ALL night. Drinks are expensive.
    Sri Lankan dancers are the best in the world--no kidding.

    Dress Code: Typical dress is nice, summery clothing. Nothing too fancy, but people look good.

    In Colombo, the Hilton Hotel has a good nightclub for dancing...the Raj Hotel has an excellent bar with adjoining restaurant. There are a few nightclubs (but not a lot) to choose from, most of them play western dance music in modern settings.

    There was not really a lot of nightlife in Sri Lanka, its not that kind of place. There was the hotel disco which took place once a week on a Friday so everyone made the most it. We had a good laugh and met new friends.

    Dress Code: Anything goes.

    Sri Lanka is not a country for the ones who likes to spend all nights dancing.
    the night clubs are very seldoms.
    you will maybe find sometimes some kind of clubs in the hotels.

    Dress Code: your clothes just have to be descents. in temples you have to take off your shoes before going in.
    a word for west European girls : Topless is PROHIBITED on Sri Lanka beaches !!! Sorry girls ! you will come back with 2 white spots :-)

    Nightlife is usually limited to the big hotels in Colombo. You definitely need to wear shoes, not sandals to get in. The Expatriates also have gatherings every now & then, so check with local embassies such as the US embassy. Believe me, the Marines loved to party.

    Dress Code: Make sure you wear shoes, not sandals. Some of the hotel dance clubs will not let you in.

    Nightlife is Hotel based

    most of the night life is in the hotel so keep that in mind when booking. Although after a hectic day tripping around the island a drink or two watching the sun go down was all I needed.

    Evening Entertainment in Trincomalee is rudimentary. Just grab a bite and have a coke and watch the world go by.

    nightlife is not so popular as in some other countries, but a must is to visit the Kandy traditional dance show

    On another night in our hotel there had a resident fire eater who was also quite good. Of course when he was looking for a volunteer he picked me.
