Colombo Tuk-Tuk Tour Itinerary
Having met your English-speaking guide at the main entrance to the Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct, you'll begin your tuk-tuk tour of the colourful Sri Lankan city of Colombo. Your expert guide will reveal some key facts about the island and its history, and before you know it you'll be zooming round the streets in your tuk-tuk.
Enjoying this traditional Asian way of getting around, you'll soon reach Colombo port, the first stop on your sightseeing route. You'll pass by the elegant President's House, the Khan Clock Tower and Colombo Lighthouse, before heading to Chatham Street, one of the city's most traditional areas.
Your tuk-tuk will then take you to see the iconic red-and-white mosque known as the Red Masjid, and you'll have the opportunity to explore the local markets surrounding it. You'll be overwhelmed by the choice of products on offer, from delicious typical foods to handcrafted souvenirs!
Returning to your tuk-tuk, you'll delve deep into Sri Lanka's cultural heritage. Admire the elaborate carvings of the towering Hindu temple of Sri Kaileswaram, discover Colombo's Independence Square and marvel at the peaceful Buddhist temple of Gangaramaya.
Your tour will come to an end in the financial heart of the city, at the World Trade Centre, twin towers that overlook the city from their almost 500 feet (152 m) in height.
