Rashan’s Walk: Colombo behind the Scenes
Discover the local face of Colombo on our walk and tuk-tuk ride – exploring the backstreets and alleyways of this fascinating metropolis – an enlightening adventure into one of the world’s friendliest cities. Your guide Rashan is a true local, born and bred, who will lead you away from the fancy shops and tourist areas to parts of the city that you wouldn’t normally get to see. Called appropriately ‘Rashan’s Walk’, this adventure will take you to Galle Face Green, an ocean-side urban park, with spectacular views of the Indian Ocean and city skyline, and then on to some fascinating districts like Slave Island, where Rashan will walk you down alleys and side streets to see the real ‘face’ of the city. You will meet a lot of local people here and learn about what they do. No frills or scripts – simply local life as you see it for yourself. Rashan will also take you to try out some local food, like Kottu Rotti – an everyday Sri Lankan meal not to be missed – best enjoyed at a street ‘food joint’. And if the time is right, you might even be able to drop in on a puja prayer ceremony, held at a Hindu Temple.
