Colombo City Walk

Spend an afternoon exploring the capital city seeking out historic colonial gems. Here you will seek out colonial architectural gems such as the Dutch Museum. This seventeenth century building was originally the residence of a Dutch Govenor and it is so easy to imagine him sitting upon the front veranda looking down to the port below whilst having a cup of tea or gin and tonic.

 

You will then continue on the countrys largest wholesale bazaar(shops) which transports you to St. Peters Church, an Anglican church established in 1821.

 

As you wind your way through the streets you may eventually come back to the lighthouse, designed by the same man as Big Ben, and the famous Galle Face Green, which on a weekend is bustling and heaving with native people enjoying the seaside and street food served here.

Is one of the most remarkable island nations I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. Every year increasing number of tourists visits here but they always tend to do the same few things Temple of the Tooth, Sigiriya and Yala National Park. You should visit them also but you should also plan time to do a few unique, unusual and off the beaten path activities as well.

Colombo is the former capital of Sri Lanka, now the present one is Sri Jayawaradanapura – Kotte and Colombo is the commercial capital. It is a city that has undergone major transformation since the Portuguese arrival in 1505. It also has colonial heritage left to explore with an excursion into Colombo Fort, a three-mile long rampart originally built in the 16C by the Portuguese and then further developed by the Dutch and then British since 1948.
