Colombo- the Commercial Capital of Sri Lanka is an ever-busy city. Most of the important buildings are located here in Colombo, which makes the city even busier.
If you are wondering why this place has been named a ‘Fort’, that is because it was really a fort when the Portuguese and the Dutch ruled the country. If you are planning to have a Colombo city tour, make sure you start it from here.
Many of the best places to stay in Sri Lanka are located very close to the Galle Face Green, and among them, there are also hotels owned by the Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts. Those who are spending family vacations, can come to the Galle Face in the evenings and just have some fun with the kids while enjoying the natural sea breeze.
