    Colombo Things to Do

    Although this is treacherous for swimming they have built some man made reefs which provide some shelter from the waves and you can swim. The beach is so long that you would have to set out in the morning if you are intrepid enough to try and reach the end. There are many restaurants and shacks where you can enjoy a cool beer or juice while...

    Colombo Things to Do

    The one thing that immediately put me off was the price, 2500 rupees compared to locals paying 50, a big discrepancy. At least they provide a map and numbers posted help you get around to see everything but some cages were empty and the footpaths in a state of disrepair although further on I saw men laying new paving so I would imagine that in ten...

  • 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...

  • 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...

    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...

  • 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...
