Quick, loud and huge city in Sri Lanka

Colombo is the capital of Sri Lanka, and this is where most travelers come to visit. It's a culture shock, everything moves quicky, it is loud, it is difficult to locate, the city is huge. The town is 30 kilometers from the airport, and there is a free bus to the central bus station. But then the natives see your face and they try to offer tourist buses, taxis, guide services, hotels , etc. The city has a nice colonial center, but with the new civil war, it was dubbed a "high security zone" and difficult to reach. Other than that, to have a quiet arrival, I recommend that you spend the 1st night on the beach of Negombo, 10 km from the airport.
