Stretching along the enchanting coast of the financial capital of Colombo, the Galleface Green is the ideal place to spend a chilled out evening with your loved ones in the city. A holiday in Sri Lanka would not be complete without a visit to this beachside full of culture and vibrancy and no need to worry since Sri Lanka Holiday Travel offers a number of Sri Lanka tour packages that essentially covers this lively spectacle. An alluring promenade attracting thousands of locals as well as foreigners all year round, Galleface Green was initially laid out by the Governor of the then British Ceylon, Sir Henry Ward and was used for a myriad of purposes as a golf course as well as for horse racing. Today, a visitor to the Galleface Green could spot a number of colourful kites flying in the air since this is a popular spot for kite flyers as well as a number of merchants selling everything from toys to other little knickknacks. The Galleface Green is also famous for its stretch of street food vendors selling scrumptious street food quite unique to the city so don’t forget to try out an isso wadei or a crab wadei served with a side of onion and chilli sambol once here.
