    Colombo Things to Do

    The main entrance to the beach is accessed by step over the all two sets of railway lines. I immediately feel the ocean breeze around me as I remove my flip flops at the centrance to the beach. A couple of resident dogs lie snuggled into the sand at a depth that offers some coolness to their parasite riddled fur. Nearby, a tiny stall sits unevenly...

  • Galle Face Green

    Colombo Things to Do

    One of the major things to do in Colombo mentioned in my guidebook and on any travel website you care to go on is a visit to Galle Face Green, so I did. Now it is great to have a green space in the middle of any major city, and doubly so if it is beside the ocean but I really don't see what all the fuss is about nor why it is so popular. Certainly...

    Colombo Things to Do

    In the centre of the bustling, noisy and marginally manic Pettah (market) area of Colombo stands the rather fine building you see in the main image which houses the Dutch Period Museum. It is a building with quite an interesting history and dates to the very late 17th century when it was constructed by the Dutch Governor of the area, a chap called...

  • Cinnamon Gardens - Viharamahadevi Park

    Colombo Things to Do

    The green space of Viharamahadevi Park isn't all it could be but it still represents one of the city's largest open recreational areas. There isn't much to do here apart from walk in the shade of the trees and soak up the ambience. In the middle of the day this is a favoured spot for people to spend their time sleeping out of the midday sun, which...

    4 out of 5 stars

    Colombo Things to Do

    Fort area, earlier known as Kolonthota, is the place the Portuguese landed in the early 16th century. They developed it and, to protect their economic interests, built a fort there in 1588. In 1656, the Dutch conquered this fort and established their sway over Colombo. In 1815, the British gained control over it and made it their administrative...

  • Zoo

    2.5 out of 5 stars

    Colombo Things to Do

    I should preface this tip by saying that I love Asia and just about everything about it. It is the continent I have travelled most extensively in and, whilst I hope to visit other continents, I remain drawn here. I should also say that I do not particularly like zoos as I am inherently against the idea of wild animals being caged, often in...

  • Shopping

    Colombo Things to Do

    It is a very strange thing that generally speaking I hate shopping and yet I love markets, specifically those in Asia. My virtual Tourist pages are full of tips on them. I am not sure if it is the sights, smells (particularly delightful on this continent), sounds or just the general hubbub and sense of life about them but I never pass up the chance...

  • Buddha

    Colombo Things to Do

    There are places and places to see in Sri Lanka but just about every place in Asia offers ruins, colonial cities, temples, and natural wonders. This puts a pilgrimage to Sri Pada, AKA Adam's Peak, in a class in itself. A huge footprint at the top of the mountain is said to be Adam's (say the Muslims), Buddha's (say the Buddhists), Siva's (say the...

    If you are passionate about fishing you should have a good holiday, I never fish in the UK but I do in Sri Lanka. you can use lures and fancy gear but I get good results with prawns, they are cheap and they really attract the fish. There is an amazing variety of fish particularly in sheltered waters and offshore around the reefs, I caught a parrot...
