Long layover, single traveler

Have ~23 hr layover in Colombo and would like to get out of the airport and appreciate some of what Colombo or the surrounding areas have to offer. That being said, I am a female traveling alone so any advice (beyond dress modestly and stay out of sketchy alleys) would be appreciated.

Must see attractions? Getting into town from the airport? Areas I should absolutely avoid?

Thanks!

I would suggest you go to Negombo. It's better value for money than Colombo.

Hi

Colombo is not famous for "must see" monuments and buildings but there are quite a few ways to fill up your time. Read through this thread and see if anything sparks your interests

If you just want to pass your time relaxing, then Negombo is a better alternative as a rest stop.
