The Dutch Canal has existed since the colonial period, and the canal is still one of the main local sports channels, and it is also worth walking here, you can experience the water life of the locals
It's really unknown where the name of the Dutch Canal comes from. I only know that the river is a relatively clean river in Negombo. There are basically no tourists here, but there is a bus station nearby. You must pass by when you ride!
The Dutch canal was dug by the Dutch, so it is named after it. It used to be a river with heavy traffic, but now it is not as busy as before. The river is not wide, and it is estimated that there will be six small boats in parallel. Standing on the small bridge and seeing one by one docked on the shore, it is very suitable for taking pictures.
The Dutch Canal is a canal built artificially in the early days to transport supplies to Colombo, and it is still worth seeing. People rowed leisurely in small boats, and it felt like a little Venice.
Walking to a place not far from the hotel is the "Dutch Canal" in the city, which is also a trace of the colonial rule. It used to be a canal that was used as a transportation channel in the city. Although there are boats on the small river, it is no longer busy and of course not as clear as the river. The channel of the canal is dirty, but there are locals washing clothes by the river, and the houses on both sides of the canal unceremoniously sweep the garbage at the door into the canal. Environmental protection is still a big difficulty in third world countries. We walked along the canal for a while, and saw a few houses with a little characteristic, which in a certain area constituted a scene of people with small bridges and flowing water.
--Orange Holland--The Netherlands is a kingdom. The queen is the head of the country. The queen's family has ruled this country for hundreds of years. The Queen’s family name, ORANJE, means orange in Dutch. The Dutch like their queen and royal family, so orange has become a manifestation of people's love for the country and royal family. Over time it became the national color of the Netherlands. Some people also say that the traditional Chinese painting of Holland is orange
