Colombo, no matter how busy the town is, is a great destination in Sri Lanka for family getaways. Moms can have an amazing time shopping at many malls in Colombo while the kids try the following experiences together with their parents.
Let them have some fun at the Victoria Park
Locals call this park ‘Viharamahadevi Park’. Although this park is often occupied by couples during the day time, you can always take your kids there in the evening to have some fun in the play area.
Take them to the Galle Face Green
Located very close (within walking distance) to great hotels the likes of Cinnamon Grand Colombo is the Galle Face Green which is a large portion of land facing the Colombo sea. Kids can have a nice time flying kites and also enjoying great street food available for sale there.
Visit the Gangaramaya Temple
It’s a temple that has the usual elements such as the Bo Tree and beautiful Buddha statues. But in addition to those, there are also a life-sized stuffed elephant, vintage cars, and many antiques for you to explore.
Wander around the Slave Island
While enjoying all the comforts at your luxury hotel in Colombo, why not just move with the locals and let your kids meet some local kids of their age? You can do this in Salve Island which is a separate area in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
