1. Tag: Negombo

Welcome to Sri Lanka! You are free to arrive today at your leisure.Negombo is situated by the shores of a lagoon by the same name. Once a Portuguese and Dutch trading port, popular attractions here include the Old Dutch fort gate built in 1672, the Dutch Canal, and the old churches and fishing villages which surround the area. In fact, due to the many ornate Roman Catholic churches scattered throughout, Negombo is sometimes known as "The Little Rome". It also has a huge and rather inviting white sandy beach!

Also worth exploring is the Kochchikade area, that comes to life at dusk with many handicrafts for sale, boutiques, shops, gem shops and restaurants for you to explore. There will be a pre departure meeting tonight at 6pm where you will meet your tour leader and fellow travellers.
