Colombo Full Day Sightseeing Tour
Take a look at the posh and shabby side of Colombo with the Colombo Full Day sightseeing tour. Tour the city’s most famed monuments, from the greens to the grays; we cover all shades of this timeless city.
Chic eateries, colonial architecture and buzzing markets aren’t the only things that sum up ‘the garden city of the East’. There’s more to the city than our eyes can see; once inhibited by the Portuguese, Dutch and the British has resulted in buildings of various architectural styles peppered around the city. Not only that, the influence of the east-west sea trading going way back to the 5th Century has resulted in a rich diversity affecting the city in many positive ways. This Colombo sightseeing tour is the best way to view the many colors that contribute to this rainbow of a city situated on the west coast of Sri Lanka. Admire the refreshing sea view and the antique Dutch cannons that line the mile-long cemented walkway and lawn of Galle Face Green, a popular meeting spot for the locals in the city. For a taste of the luxury life head over to the Cinnamon Gardens district, the upper-east side of Colombo lined with colonial mansions housing the elite. Stop by at the independence hall, which is the restored Dutch hospital. The place offers loads of photography opportunities and a good place for some posh shopping. Drive past boulevards lined with 1000 year old trees to get to the action-packed Pettah area. The bazaars are a good place to strike a bargain and sell everything from clothes to sweetmeats. Visit the temples and envelope yourself with spirituality. That’s not all, you can encounter all types of art that date back to 1877 at the National Museum. Beat the heat at the Mount Lavinia beach that promises picturesque sunset scenes like no other. You will get to taste the culinary scene of Sri Lanka by stopping for lunch at the Galle Face Hotel with wonderful views of the sea. For some high tea, we will stop at a restaurant in Colombo Fort.
