Colombo by Tuk Tuk

Overview

Explore the real and rustic Colombo as the locals do – travelling by tuk-tuk. Experience the delightful city tour in the traditional three-wheeler, navigating through the streets and traffic with elan. With remarkably hospitable drivers, a tuk-tuk ride to explore the heritage of the city is one of the must-do things in Colombo.

Why you will love it

  • Witness Colombo’s important sites
  • Travelling in a tuk-tuk is an adventure in itself as it navigates through the busy roads and streets
  • Discover the colonial influences on the city’s architecture
  • Discover offbeat tracks and rustics shops and stops that Colombo has to offer

What you will experience

Why settle for regular and ordinary when you can experience the extraordinary. Ditch the regular transport to explore Colombo like the locals would – by a tuk-tuk, the three-wheeler vehicle extraordinaire. Explore the past and the present beauty of the city as you witness Colombo's prominent attractions and sights.

Begin your tuk-tuk escapade from the Independence Square and proceed to explore the rich heritage as you witness the bustling city that exists today. Your next destination in this exhilarating journey is the gloriously colourful Gangaramaya temple and the awesome granite structure of Sri Ponnambala Vanneswarar Temple. While you bask in the glory of these religious places, explore and understand the influence of Buddhism and Hinduism on present-day Colombo.

Now travel through the modern-day Colombo to reach one of the oldest districts of Colombo, Pettah. Explore the old market here and shop for silks and local handlooms before you proceed to discover the most stunning landmark in the area, Jami Ul-Alfar, a red and white brick mosque built-in 1909. After this is the time for the natural beauty of Colombo as your ride takes you a short distance to climb to a viewpoint unparalleled in the city. A 360-degree view awaits you. From port and sea to city views, take your time to drink in an often overlooked and underappreciated Colombo.
