You have been reading my various travel notes on this blog site. In addition to those notes, I am hoping to write an article series like this. What I meant by a series here is that it is impossible to write a travel journal on a trip to Galle from Colombo from one blog post. However, all of you know that the Galle Road starts from the famous tourist paradise Galle Face green. Therefore, let us start from that point.
|Galle Face Green|
Galle Face Green is one of the most stunning and historical places in our country. Built during the colonial period, this open space was used to give punishments like hang and shoot people in public. However, now this beautiful green space is used for important state occasions. The evenings of the Galle Face green are always eventful. Filled with locals and foreigners, it is the place to relax in Colombo. Most of the top hotels of the country Galadari Hotel, Ceylon Continental Hotel, Taj Samudra Hotel and a hotel with a rich heritage, Galle Face hotel overlooks Galle Face Green.
When we travel ahead passing the Galle Face green, what we meet next are the most magnificent areas of the Colombo city. What we call as Colombo 3 and Colombo 4 are Kolpity and Bamabalapitiya towns. If you are into clubbing and casinos this is the area. Not only those, these are also places great for a shopping spree. Two popular shopping malls, Liberty Plaza and Majestic City, are also situated here.
Our next destination is Wellawatta or area known as Colombo 06. This is also a highly populated city with often traffic blocks. Wellawatta Beach is the most beautiful beach belongs to the Colombo municipality. Day and night beach is filled with joggers, fun lovers, Romoes, and Juliets. It is the ideal place for the foreigners who have the hobby of fishing.
The next city is Dehiwala. Turning left from Dehiwala Junction, and taking another left turn from the Karagampitya junction leads you to the Dehiwala National Zoological Gardens. Many local and foreign animals reside here. Pay a visit here to see the beautiful world of animals.
|Mount Lavinia Beach|
When you pass Dehiwala, the next destination is the world famous Mount Lavinia Beach. Crowded all throughout the day, this is a beautiful and fun filled coast. Tourists come here very often to swim in the Indian Ocean, to play water games, to bask under the hot sun and to play on the golden sandy beach. Mount Lavinia Hotel, which has a dreamy fairy tale love story hidden inside the hotel walls, is also situated in this famous beach.
Next, you meet the cities Ratmalana, Moratuwa, and Panadura. Beautiful Bolgoda Lake, Moratu River and an urbanized environment can be witnessed here. Then you enter a quiet Wadduwa Beach. The beauty of the serene beach is enhanced by the coconut lands along the coast. The three star hotel Blue waters, and other hotels like Wadduwa Holiday Resort, Villa Ocean View are some of the hotels in Wadduwa.
