Surrounded by spice plantations and the Indian Ocean, Colombo, Sri Lanka, is one of Asia’s most laid-back capitals. Four years after the end of the island’s civil war, new hotels, restaurants, and boutiques are springing up in neighborhoods such as Cinnamon Gardens, and colonial monuments are being repurposed for modern use.
