Overview

Get an intimate look at the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo during this 3.5-hour sightseeing trip by tuk tuk with a small group. Travel like Sri Lankan locals do as you weave through traffic, stopping to check out city landmarks like Colombo Harbour, the Pettah neighborhood, Wolvendaal Church, Independence Square, Gangaramaya Temple, and much more.

Meet up with your group in the early morning at Colombo’s Water Fountain, Level 01, at the World Trade Center. Before boarding your tuk tuk for the day, take a short walk through the city’s central business district, where you’ll admire a number of colonial buildings.

Continue aboard your motorized ride as you check out city sights like Colombo Harbour, the Fort Clock Tower, Colombo Lighthouse, and the President’s House. Then pass by Chatham Street, a now-trendy area that was off-limits for many years due to Sri Lanka’s civil war. Proceed from there to Pettah, a Colombo neighborhood that’s known for its diverse range of market stalls and the Red Mosque. Stop for 20 to 30 minutes to grab some street snacks or shop for bargains.

As your nimble tuk tuk ducks and weaves in between people, buses and bikes, you’ll zoom onward to visit Wolvendaal Church, a colonial-era Dutch structure that dates back more than 360 years. Take a look at the church’s collection of old tombstones from the city’s historic Dutch governors and then have a talk with the church keeper, who can share insights into city history and culture.

Head next to Sri Kaileshwarm Kovil (Captain’s Garden Hindu Temple), the main worship site for Colombo residents, and then proceed to Independence Square, the location where Sri Lanka proclaimed its independence from British rule in 1948. Make the last stop of the day at Gangaramaya Temple, one of the most important Buddhist temples in Colombo.

Explore the architecture and paintings of this religious site before cross the street to Bera Lake, where you can learn more about the some of the contemporary issues like pollution facing city residents. Finish the trip with a drop-off back at your original starting point at World Trade Center.
