Another list of exciting things to do in Sri Lanka at night like casinos, night cafes and bars can be enjoyed mostly in the big cities. Some of the famous spots are the Bally’s casino at Colombo, Sky Lounge, ‘Slightly Chilled Lounge Bar and Restaurant’ and Kandy, etc. A Cascade, in Colombo is a popular nightclub due to its ambience which is similar to any other Western country.  There are some amazing food joints to enjoy at night like the Seafood Cove, ON 14 Roof Top Bar and Lounge.

Head to the south west coast for the coral reefs, and enjoy water sports activities like snorkeling and diving. Planning a day trip to Mirissa Beach, Hikkaduwa Beach, or Bentota Beach for adventure tour and kite surfing at spectacular beaches is also one of the best things to do in Sri Lanka.

Behold the ancient monument ruins, the Buddhist magnificent sculptures, the Golden Cave Temple which dates back to prior 2nd century.

Next thing to do in Sri Lanka is to go ‘caving’. This is a new and rather unusual experience as Sri Lanka has many caves spread across its land where you can explore and take photos.
