1. HighTea at the Galle Face Hotel Terrace
Head to the historic Galle Face Hotel between 16.00 – 18.00 hrs to enjoy a classic British style high tea on the famous hotel chequerboard and glimpse a sunset, that is almost perfect! As you sip on freshly brewed Ceylon Tea and devour iconic cucumber sandwiches.
2. Sunset at Mount Lavinia Beach
Drop in at any one of the many Beach Bars along the Mount Lavinia coastline and as you sip on that perfect cocktail get lost in the myriad colours of the setting sun as the gentle waves crash upon the golden surf. We like Bu-Ba on Vihara Road, The Governor’s Terrace at the Mount Lavinia Hotel or La Voile Blanche.
3. Enjoy a ride in a Tuk Tuk
Hail one of these truly unique forms of transport and enjoy the view from the open sides of the tuk tuk as a gentle breeze gushes upon you. Find out how from our Tuk-Tuk Page. Link to tuk-tuk page
4. Jazz on Sundays
Let the smooth sounds of live jazz serenade your Sunday as you sip on a beer,grab a bite to eat and simply relax. Every first Sunday of the month at CR & FC Club crandfc.com and also at Barefoot Café barefootceylon.com (Every Sunday from 13.00 – 16.00 hrs)
5. Fly a kite / Take a Stroll or grab a quick bite at the Galle Face Green
As the sun sets, challenge yourself to fly a kite take or just take a stroll along the beautiful Galle Face Green making sure to pause at one of the many street food vendors. These speed demons who will flash fry an isso vadai (savoury donut with prawn) or even a crab version (kakuluwo), double quick. Another treat is boiled chick peas sautéed with mustard seed and spices, served up in a newspaper wrapper! If you’re looking for a meal, then one of the numerous stalls will be happy to toss up a quick fire bite as well.
6. Party All Night
Dance till the break of dawn at one of Colombo’s many nightclubs or lounge bars complete with tequila shots, regrettable moments and oh so much fun!
7. Explore Pettah
Famous for its open air bazaars and markets, Pettah in the heart of Colombo Fort, is one of the busiest commercial neighborhoods in Sri Lanka. Visitors can spend hours zig-zagging along this grid style business hub. Don’t forget to try a Faluda (sherbert milk drink) or a fresh lemon juice from one of the many street vendors. It is said that almost anything one desires’ can be found in Pettah.
