I am a photo blogger. So, it is quite obvious that I love exploring different places so that I can capture beautiful shots on my camera. And to add some more breathtaking views to my photo blog, I visited Colombo, Sri Lanka Last year. It is such an outstanding place and not less than a paradise for those who want to capture the best shots. But all my excitement went into vain when I got to know that there was no special offer and deal available on the flights. At one point, I was about to postpone my trip but then I got to know about the Reservations Number wherein I got a special deal of up to 30% on the online Vistara flight booking. While booking this flight, I was a little unsure so I researched online to know the policies, fare types, class options, etc.
And for this, firstly, I visited the official website of the airline and then called on the Vistara customer care number +1-844-915-2138 to validate the details. And you know what – everything was just right and as per my budget. So, without wasting a single moment, I immediately booked my two-way flight tickets. I am glad that I did online research otherwise I would never get such a special deal. Next time, whenever I visit this place again, I will undeniably book my tickets in the same airline and through Reservations Number.
Places to See in Colombo, Sri Lanka
I have heard a lot about this place, so it was always on my list. And last year, my dream finally came true. Colombo has so many beautiful places to visit, explore, and capture awe-inspiring views but I cannot list down all the spots. Therefore, I am mentioning my top 5 here. So, have a look:
- Galle Face Green
It is such a beautiful beach park where you can visit with your loved ones. The Galle Face Green is a park that has covered an area of around 5 hectares. Here, one thing is sure – you will enjoy everything and forget all your worries by indulging in countless activities like beach volleyball, football, kite flying, jogging, fishing, or simply relax on the beach.
- Gangaramaya Temple
This temple is such a beautiful mix of culture and architecture. It is marked as a place for Buddhist worship and learning. Built in the 19th century, this place is such a unique blend of different architectural styles from India, Sri Lanka, Chinese, and Thailand. Gangaramaya Temple is such an outstanding place where you will get some peace of mind.
- Pettah Market
Also known as Manning Market, it is an open market in the town of Pettah in Colombo, Sri Lanka. This market is marked as one of the busiest places in Colombo, so it may seem a little bit chaotic to you but when you reach the main street, you can actually buy some cool stuff at unexpectedly low prices. I also bought some nice stuff for my wife and daughter.
- National Museum of Colombo
With a two-storey building, the National Museum of Colombo is the largest museum in the country. This museum dates back to 1877 and it has a rich history of more than 2,500 years. William Henry Gregory – British Governor of Ceylon was the founder of this museum. It has a total of three sections including cultural galleries, natural science, and a gift shop. To explore this place better, you will need at least 3-4 hours, so it is better to dedicate a whole day to this museum.
- Fort Colombo
It is a paradise for tourists like me who want to capture the best shots. This place is home to the stock exchange and the well-known World Trade Centre, which is one of the largest buildings in Sri Lanka. This place is popular for casinos and dynamic nightlife.
Apart from these places, you can also visit Pettah Floating Market, World Trade Centre, Beira Lake, Colombo Dutch Museum, National Zoological Garden of Sri Lanka, Viharamahadevi Park, and Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara to gather more beautiful memories and capture breathtaking shots on your camera. However, you should not miss out on the opportunity to save 30% on the online Vistara flight booking.
