The "Harbour With Leafy Mango Trees" offers an exciting intercultural experience for expats, starting with cultural highlights, like the Dutch Period Museum, which documents colonial rule in Sri Lanka,, the folkloristic festivities on the occasion of Sri Lanka’s Tamil Thai Pongal Day, up to getting a taste of traditional rice and curry. The InterNations community helps you as an Colombo expat to enjoy your expat stay in Sri Lanka to the fullest. Our members have already come across many of the questions you’ll have when starting your expatriate life in Colombo and kindly offer you their assistance, from ʺShould I study some basic Sinhala or Tamil, or rather both of them?ʺ up to ʺWhat are an expat couple's average living expenses in Colombo?ʺ.
