Galle Face Green

If you were to do only one thing in Colombo, a stroll down Galle Face Green would be a good contender. Facing the rolling waves of the Indian Ocean, this car-free thoroughfare was laid out in 1859 by the governor of British Ceylon, Henry Ward. Come here for spectacular sunsets and a snapshot of local life: couples and families promenading along the seafront, huddles of people listening to cricket on the radio and the omnipresent stalls selling rotis and snacks.
