Once a hospital then a police station and now it serves as a Food court with lots of cafes.Yes this is the history of dutch hospital , the oldest building in colombo.Sri lanka was once a dutch colony sometime in 1600 .This is my favorite place to eat lunch.

3.) Galle Face Green

aw

Galle Face Green is long strict road along the sea.This is the ideal place for the local families to spend their evenings. There are ice cream stalls, balloon man,musicians etc.Watch the sunset either by the sea or at one of the famous bars in the 5 star hotels.
I like to drink a beer and watch the sunset over here.

4.) Beach Wadiya Cafe

The old school restaurant along the beach is treat for sea food lovers.All the cricketers come here to eat food and you can see from the hundreds of pictures hanging on the wall .The owner is in most of them and like to boasts about it .But what i really like about the restaurant is its ambience.You have to pass a railway crossing track to get there and trust me there are no signs so look on both the side for the trains .The outdoors is by the beach and menu is so small mostly the fresh fish caught by the fishermen .Grab a lions beer and some fish curry.

5.)Beira Lake
