How To Reach Colombo
Book Colombo Tour Package
Staying the first day in Negombo (30 km from Colombo), we visited Gangamaraya Temple in the capital city which has the hair relic of Buddha. This temple is worth a visit for the number of Buddhas it has and to understand the Buddhist culture. Later, we visited Galle Face in Colombo, facing the Indian Ocean. (The viewpoint is perfect for Sunset). So, our itinerary began with a 3.5-hour train from Colombo to Galle with an Ocean-side view. The journey is a photographer's delight and landscapes that greet you along the way will compel you to plan for your retirement home in Sri Lanka. That surreal and picturesque.
