O que você fará
The journey begins with a heritage walk at Colombo Fort, once a mighty colonial fort & safe haven to seafaring merchants. Learn about the Fort’s colonization & its inhabitants throughout the ages. Hear their stories as you walk along age-old streets & view the heritage and historic remnants of the past. Next, cross a canal to reach Pettah, the nation's busiest commercial district selling goods of every description. I'll lead you through the maze of streets & alleyways, & show you the historical landmarks & cultural sites hidden within the hustle & bustle. You’ll experience the lives of the locals & get a glimpse into their livelihoods at the bazaar. Next, visit the Galle Face Promenade. Marvel at the ocean from the promenade, feast on street food, visit a heritage hotel nearby & get an insight on the original promenade dating back to the 1800s. Later, head to Slave Island, a township encompassed in history, culture, harmonious neighborhoods & delicious food. Then, explore the Town Hall district to see more historically & culturally significant sites.
