A fortnight ago I had a day out in the city of Colombo, where I currently live. A bit of introduction for those of you who have never heard of this place: Colombo is the capital city of a tiny island in the Indian Ocean, south of India, called Sri Lanka. It’s renowned for its aromatic spices, tea and precious gems. It has a tropical climate surrounded by beautiful beaches.
Now that you’ve come to know a bit about it, let’s head on to my trip!
(This is going to be a picture-heavy post, hope you’ll like it! I’ve also divided it into two parts as it felt too long.)
Sri Lanka Tea Board
After visiting the Sri Lankan Tea Board we checked out The Body Shop(Galle Road branch). Average price found there was LKR 2500(US$15) and I was pleasantly surprised to find that they had a few vegan and vegetarian options! Wish they were alcohol-free though, like Spa Ceylon, as I’m a Muslim.
We then walked half a block to the bookshop and later the vegetable market, which you can check out in Part 2.
