Wat je gaat doen

We'll start across the harbor & take a heritage walk through Colombo Fort. Discover the story of Colombo and its ancient seafaring trade. Learn about the Fort's colonization & hear the stories of its inhabitants throughout the ages as you walk along age-old streets & witness the heritage and architectural remnants of the past. Next, we'll cross a canal to reach Pettah, a trade district selling goods of every description. Wander through the maze of streets & alleyways, & uncover hidden historical landmarks & cultural gems within the hustle & bustle. Walk through a farmer's market & discover a variety of local fruits & vegetables used in Lankan cuisine. Later, we'll stop by the Galle Face Promenade to marvel at the ocean, indulge in local street food, or just walk & get an insight on the original promenade dating back a century. Next, we head to Slave Island, a place once with a dark history, now thriving with a diverse culture of people, harmonious neighborhoods, religious landmarks & delicious food. Finally, we'll explore the Cinnamon Gardens to unravel Victorian-era monuments, wonder at grandeur architecture, walk through a historic park & browse through inspiring classical and contemporary art.
