The beautiful promenade stretches around the seaward sides of the city and is being refurbished back to its old colonial glory.

There are some really lovely spots for high tea in Colombo, but the Old Dutch Hospital won’t disappoint with its lovely atmosphere and delightful array of cakes and tea.

Sunset on Galle Face Green

This is a very popular place for people to come and chill out, watch the sunset, and grab a bite to eat at the food stalls along The Green in the evening.

The markets are worth spending a few hours wandering around; just try not to get run over, though. The traffic around the markets is pretty hectic.
