Sightseeing in Colombo, Sri Lanka -Things you wish you knew before visiting this paradise

Floating Market Colombo

Sri Lanka’s largest metropolis Colombo offers family vacationers a plethora of engaging attractions. One of the best and unique ways to explore the city’s attractions is by riding along in the bright red double-decker bus, which is decorated with funky colourful pictures of landmarks. It will take you around Colombo’s top attractions such as the Viharamahadevi Park, Independence Memorial & Arcade Independence Square, shopping at Laksala – the state-owned handicrafts emporium and many others. The project which is a venture by Sri Lanka Tourism & Ebert Silva Holidays offers three types of tours named Glimpse of Colombo, Heritage of Colombo and Colombo at Night. However, if you want to explore Colombo in more than just one day it is important to be comfortably settled in a hotel in Colombo that’s within convenient distance to the city’s top attractions such as the Jetwing Colombo Seven.

Although it may be an obvious attraction for those familiar with Colombo’s geography exploring the capital’s beaches is perhaps one of the most underrated activities in the country’s tourist landscape
Sri Lanka is famous for its beaches and when in Colombo you won’t miss out on this experience as you have Galle Face Green! A five-hectare ocean-side urban park, the Galle Face Green is an ideal venue to go for a chilling-by-the-beach evening experience with friends and family. Head to Galle Face Green and promenade by the sea south of the Fort and do not forget to taste the absolutely delicious Isso Wadé which is known as the signature snack of this place.
The city’s restaurants, coffee shops, tea shops, cafes, pubs, bars and lounges are affordable and offer delicious fare that range from local cuisine to Indian both north and south, Japanese, Thai, Chinese, Korean, Italian, Mediterranean, German, Middle Eastern and fusion cuisine.
