The city of Colombo, the commercial capital of Sri Lanka, has many unique places to explore, but any day-time city-safari would be incomplete without these locales.
Galle Face Green
This urban park is definitely a noteworthy locale since it’s there so much to see and experience here. There’s a kaleidoscopic sight of shops selling everything from toys to street-food, and many a Colombo city hotel with examples such as Colombo Court Hotel & Spa.
This massive open market is famous throughout the island of Sri Lanka, and has an astonishing range of products for sale. Whether you’re on the lookout for local spices, leather products, or high-end electronics, you will discover them here.
