Calm In The Chaos

Thambilis and Tantrums was born out of a desire to bring some calm and clarity to this chaotic paradise island. We are here to take the stress out of Colombo living and get you feeling fully connected. Whether you have just landed on this island or are a long timer- we hope this community fills in some gaps.

If you are super new then let us teach you your first Singhalese word, “Thambili,” it means King Coconut, and it will be your saviour in rehydrating and cooling you down, whatever your mood! “Tantrums,” well until now you might have just associated them with toddlers, but we think us grown-ups can all admit to having had our fair share of travel-related foot stomping moments! This is a community where we give you as much information as possible, so you can put those tired stomping feet up, sip a Thambili and smash your time in Colombo and beyond.

We only recommend things that have been tried and tested, so fear not, we have your back. Don’t hesitate to get in touch, we would love to hear about your experiences and anything you think could be added. If you want regular updates then find us on , or sign up to our .

You are brave, fearless, bold and strong… Good Luck on your Sri Lankan Adventure.

BIG Love from The Thambilis & Tantrums Team
