This walk begins in Colombo’s Fort area at the old Dutch Hospital, which is the first of many beautifully restored colonial buildings that you will see on the walk. Your host is a local history buff and he will begin by giving you a quick introduction to the area before you begin the walk. The walk places focus on photography, architecture and history in two stages; stage one covers the Fort while stage two covers the Pettah markets. You’ll start by taking a big loop through the entire Fort area, stopping to visit the currency museum, passing several notable landmarks such as the Central Bank of Sri Lanka, the Old Post Office, and the historical Cargills Building. Your host has a story about each building and his energy and passion for the city are infectious – you’ll be drawn into the experience. Once you’ve finished in the Fort, you’ll stop for tea with a spectacular view overlooking the harbor and then you’ll head towards the bustling Pettah markets to try street snacks, chat with the local ‘Bombay sweet’ sellers, and perhaps even try drinking a ‘falludah’. Water will be provided if required along the way. The walk ends back where you started at the Old Dutch Hospital.
