Galle Face Green (Colombo) — Galle Face Green is a magnificent place to witness a marvelous sun set over Colombo’s shore line. Visitors always enjoy and cherish an evening by the Gall Face Green. It was laid out in 1857 by the governor Sir Henry Ward and one of the popular spots during sun set, hundreds of people come to fly kites, play cricket and to enjoy a nice walk along the green having ice cream.

 

At the end of the Green lies the magnificent Galle Face Hotel, an architectural marvel from the colonial era. The hotel was established in 1864 and it has given residence to many great royalties such as Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and as memory the first car owned by him is placed in the hotel museum. Without a doubt it is one of the best spots to have an evening drink as the wonderful breeze coming off the ocean and an evening sinking the whole city in crimson red.
