Things to do in Colombo

If you’re in Colombo don’t miss a visit to the iconic Galle Face, one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions. An idyllic waterfront promenade facing the Indian Ocean, the Galle Face used to be a horse-racing track and a golf course but has since been converted into a public park offering an oasis of tranquility in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city’s financial district. Besides being a haven of peace, the Galle Face is also an excellent place for a stroll, picnic or evening run with fresh air and gently lapping waves for company.

Next, be sure to make time for the 120-year-old Gangaramaya Temple. Situated by the side of the Beiru Lake, the Gangaramaya Temple is of great significance to the Sri Lankan as it serves as both a place of worship and a religious training institute which had, in its past, produced renowned scholars such as Ratmalana Sri Dharmarama Thero, Waskaduwa Sri Subhuti Thero.
