          it really depends on the day and the hour you are there for us we were there during the sunset and during the begining of summer so hence there were not many people, being a season time as we were there during eid break.

          There will be plenty going on in Colombo - check out the big hotels for events or alternatively see if there is a live musical show at galle face again.
