Are you ready for a real-life video game?! Because that’s what it feels like to navigate Colombo by tuk tuk!

Head down narrow streets, past monuments, and into some of the city’s most significant spots, exploring the way locals get around — by tuk tuk! You won’t see this side of Colombo on your own!

Your small-group Colombo tour kicks off with a brief walk through the heart of the city’s CBD and its old colonial buildings. After a quick history lesson from your local guide, it’ll be time to hop in a tuk tuk and hit the road! It's one of the best ways to see a lot of Colombo in a little bit of time…and all from a local perspective!

Our first stop will be the Colombo harbour. Swing past the President’s House, the Fort Clock Tower, and the Colombo Lighthouse. From there,  pass through Chatham Street, which keeps adding new restaurants, pubs, and bars to its scene. This section of Colombo is particularly fascinating as it was closed to the public for more than 30 years due to civil war and security considerations. We’ll stop briefly in front of the former passenger terminal gate in the Colombo harbour before moving on to the heart of the trading district in Colombo — the busy streets of Pettah.

Hop off the tuk tuk and spend 20-30 minutes exploring the busy streets of Pettah, from the Red Mosque to the market stalls. Meander around, sampling local food and drinks, or shopping in the colourful shops of the market.

Back into the tuk tuks. Navigating the narrow streets of Pettah has been likened to a video game; it’s non-stop dodging people, buses, lorries, bullock carts, bikes, other tuk tuks…even dogs!

Next stop, Wolvendaal Church, which at more than 360 years old is the oldest Dutch reformed church in Sri Lanka, one of the most significant reminders of the various colonial occupations throughout Sri Lanka’s history. Walk through the church, filled with old tombstones of Dutch governors and maybe even talk to the keeper of the church to better understand its history and current issues. 

Our tuk tuk tour of Colombo continues along to the Captain’s Garden Hindu Temple, aka the Sri Kaileshwarm Kovil, and the main place of worship for the many Hindus of Colombo. Walk around the temple, marvelling at the colourful paintings and murals, talk to devotees, and witness a special blessing (if you’re lucky!).

Back in the tuk tuks, we’ll set off for Independence Square, where Sri Lanka claimed independence from the British in 1948. The monument and park here are of great significance to Sri Lankans.

Our last stop of the day will be the famous Gangaramaya Temple. One of the main Buddhist temples in Colombo, known for its architecture, paintings, and collection of artefacts from various historical eras and for its contribution to Buddhist education. The temple sits across the road from the man-made, heavily polluted Bera Lake, which we’ll visit and discuss the everyday reality and impact of pollution in Colombo. If time permits, we can take the bridge that leads to the temple on the lake, Seema Malaka.

This tour comes to an end as we head back to the World Trade Center.

Sightseeing makes us hungry, which is why we’ve loaded this Colombo walking tour with tons of food stops to keep you fuelled along the way! See the city sites while tasting typical Sri Lankan street food like hoppers, wadai, and kothu from the places where locals love to snack. Eat, eat, repeat, indeed!

Your Colombo food tour will start in front of the Colombo Fort Railway Station. The station is the centre of Sri Lanka’s railway network and hasn’t changed much since it first opened in 1908. From there, we’ll wander past the busy markets finishing up at the end of the day, and down a street that’s full of little shops and vendors selling everything from saris to leather bags to fake Tag watches.

Then, it’s time for our first food stop! We’ll visit a popular local eatery, where you’ll get to sample some traditional cuisine, including hoppers, egg hoppers, and other local savoury snacks.

Then, it’s back to walking (so we can burn off that food and make room for more!). Moving on, our Colombo tour will take you to the famous Red Mosque, which is a revered place for Colombo’s Muslim community. (Men on the tour may venture inside for a peek, but unfortunately women are not allowed.)

From there, it’s back to the treats! Colombo’s main street is home to the famous Bombay Sweet House, known for its falooda and saruwath drinks as well as its sweets. As well, further down the street we’ll stumble across some achcharu (pickle) carts with different kinds of pickles.
The Sri Lankan pickle is typically very spicy — are you adventurous enough to try it out?!

We’ll also see several shops selling varieties of what the locals call murukku. These are crunchy, flavoured, fried bits of flour or chick peas. Of course, we’ll stop at one of these shops to try some of these treats for ourselves!

As we keep moving, we’ll pass by the Khan clock tower (all road distances in Colombo are measured from this tower), the harbour, and the old colonial buildings such as the Grand Oriental Hotel and the Cargills building. We’ll stop at the Old Colombo Dutch Hospital, which is considered to be the oldest building in the Colombo fort area. It’s now a renovated complex and hosts some 5-star restaurants, fancy shops, and some decent bars and pubs. Those who want can stop for a quick beer or drink here.

We’ll continue toward the Galle Face Green, passing many street food shops and stopping to sample local snacks such as prawn and crab wade along the way.

Our final stop will be the famous Nana’s kothu shop, where we can have dinner and experience the Sri Lankan kothu (a Sri Lankan roti of vegetables or meat and spices). The Galle Face Green is where locals come to relax after a busy day, and we’re likely to see families and couples playing, flying kites, or just enjoying the cool evening breeze.

Your Colombo tour will finish here, but you’re free to spend more time at the Green or wander on to the many pubs or clubs that are easily accessible from here.
