Colombo is a cosmopolitan city full of amazing things to see including wonders of both the past and the present. It is a multicultural city that has evolved over the years thanks to the many ethnicities of people who reside here. Let’s take a walking tour.
1. Enjoy a Walking Tour
Take a walking tour through Pettah and the old fort taking in the colonial buildings and vibrant everyday life. The Pettah market is lively and full of noise and colour.
2. Visit Historic Sites
Visit places of colonial splendour such as the Dutch Reformed Church, the Red Mosque and the Dutch Period Museum. Learn about what Colombo was like under each colonial state.
3. Have an Ice Cold Beer
You can discuss your findings over several mugs of ice-cold beer at the newly refurbished Dutch hospital complex which is now a very rustic shopping mall.
4. Relish an Authentic Cooking Class
There’s plenty of delicious eateries at the Dutch Hospital complex, but if you want to learn more about Sri Lankan cuisine consider enrolling in an authentic cooking class.
