Colombo Sunset City Safari by TukTuk

1 review
Step aboard a tuk tuk—the preferred mode of travel for locals—to explore Colombo at sunset. Your private driver/guide will ferry you through the city streets, watching local life pass you by as the sun sets over the Indian Ocean. Snacks and refreshments are provided, as well as a full Sri Lankan dinner at a local restaurant.

One of the most visited shrines in Sri Lanka, Place of many miracles, bombed by Islamic extremists, restored to its original glory. Must visit place regardless of the faith. Weekdays mid-morning is quiet and just be still you will feel the presence.

This Church was always on my list to visit to Colombo, but more so since the bombing. We had to specially ask our driver to take us there. Security at entry etc and armed guards, however we felt it was well worth it to experience the devotion and faith of the people worshiping. True local experience and no one bothered us to sell anything or ask anything of us. Just quiet devotion. Historic building, which has been restored in record time thanks to the Sri Lankan forces. Pictures of the blast and names of the victims displayed. We stayed 30 min and then left. Heartfelt sympathies to the victims families.
