The Galle Face Green

Location of Galle Face Green
Galle Face Green is located in Colombo, and is a prominent land mark, it is in the CBD area of the city and is the cities main sea front. There is little beach area here, and the sea is generally rather rough, that said you do see a lot of people attempting to paddle about.

There is a new pier built that reaches out into the sea, and it is a great place to watch the sun set. Galle Face comes to life at around sun set with thousands of locals descending upon the grounds with children, and it is locally also a popular destination for local couples. They all gather here to watch the sun set, eat the foods that skiz talks about in his video (see further below) and also play.

As I browsed through YouTube in search of great videos to Post on the Blog, I came across this one, which gives the viewer a good glimpse of the Sun Set and the atmosphere at the Galle Face Hotel at this time.

Here are some pictures that I took in Jan 2012 at Galle Face, These were taken on the 1st of Jan 2012.

The video below gives you a view of what Galle Face looks like during the day.

As kids we used to always go down to Galle Face to fly kites, eat ice cream and watch the sun go down. Nowadays I quite enjoy having high tea at the Galle Face Hotel on the veranda.

Another great video from Skiz Fernando, I will be posting more of his videos on the blog, and any other interesting things I find on Sri Lanka.

To be honest I have never been brave enough to try street food in Sri Lanka, so I have no comments of my own on this, so I hope Skiz gives you a good idea.

Below are some picture from Galle Face that I took this year

For those of you who are interested in the hotel, here is a great video by Trip Advisor on it.
