Colombo City Walk

Colombo City Walk

Colombo City Walks is a leisurely 2-3 hour walk that takes you through the city’s commercial heritage in terms of reflecting to the times and the ways of the Portuguese, Dutch and English, which in turn, gives these citizens a unique accent, a way of conducting their day-to- day business and unique palette.

Itinerary of Colombo City Walk

  • The main focus however, to all of this is that this walk takes you through a myriad of buildings that date back from 17 th century to the 90’s that were erected mainly during the Dutch and British rule (but we are tremendously lucky to still have a few of Dutch Architecture to gaze upon). Nothing of the Portuguese rule remains, sadly. With the dawn of the post-conflict times, we see the tremendous effort being put into this area to refurbish and bring these buildings to their hay-day wondrous state. It is an opportune time to visit the capital on foot, before some of these buildings are taken over by well recognized companies and are no longer in their shabby-chic comfort zone. You will hardly come across a person who is not willing for their picture to be taken… ‘The Pearl of the Indian Ocean’ is also being coined as a ‘Land of Many Smiles’ making one second guess if it is Sri Lanka or Taiwan that should get this nickname. Depending entirely on our guests’ enthusiasm, seeing Pettah is also an option during this walk. This market place is older than the buildings you will see; and as non-touristic as you will get.
