The castle area is a very tasteful place in Colombo. It is full of old buildings. Due to the colonial relationship, the architectural style here is somewhat like a small European city. It is very suitable for walking slowly.
The FORT district is a well-known commercial district in Colombo. There are many century-old buildings that have survived the vicissitudes of life but still stand. It is also the office of many government agencies, and the presidential palace is also nearby
Although the castle area is not particularly laid-back like Europe, it is still very beautiful. It is inevitable that there will be some mess, and it is probably a foreign building left from the colonial period.
I like architecture so much, and I have a good impression of this area. It's just a pity that it was a car tour at the time, otherwise I would have fallen into a rice tank like a mouse, and I couldn't climb out and couldn't move. Although Sri Lanka is a British colony, it feels like seeing the buildings of all nations here. Some buildings are under repair and some are still being remodeled. There is a chance, I hope I can take a good walk there next time.
A few minutes on the free shuttle bus to a messy old bus station nearby. Buses with colorful appearances are generally dilapidated, with the name of the terminus (mostly in English) marked on the front and back. Both long and short-distance buses are operated by public transportation, and passengers can get on and off at any time along the way. Therefore, as long as the same bus can get on, it is very convenient. The speed is slower and the fare is super cheap (the train is even worse), and I went to the old town of Colombo, the FORT (fort), which is more than 30 kilometers away, for only 2.3 yuan.
The castle district is a very busy place in Colombo, many government departments, financial and trade units are here, the old Dutch hospital site and the old bell tower is also in this place, in the old Dutch hospital site there is the famous Michelin restaurant, the Ministry of蟹 restaurant, must not miss.
