The Sri Lanka Travel Specialists
Colombo is a bustling city, undoubtedly the most commercial in the island, and while the region itself is a reasonably large area, it has been divided into 15 sections for the purpose of postal codes. Being a city that boasts a large harbour and an ideal position along trade routes, including the famous Silk Route, the city of Colombo has been the site of many traders and merchants over the years.
It is the same roads that you would be led through as your host takes you past many a historical site and memory hidden within the hurried pace of life amongst the barely organized arrangement of stores. Spend a moment at the Kayman’s Gate, which used to be an entrance to the old Colombo Fort and also the site for public hangings. Wander along and witness the unmistakeably changing face of this city, as old buildings are converted into newer projects, concealing precious history beneath. As your walk draws to an end this shift becomes much more apparent coming face to face with what used to be Sri Lanka’s first surgical ward during colonial times.
