"The outskirts of this fish market are busiest from 5 to 7 am. The haggling sound is raging under the dusky lights. The so-called guides are enthusiastic about the strange and never seen seafood."

Reasons to Recommend: Negombo is a famous fish village with two fish markets, one in the central city, near the vegetable market, and the other in the periphery. The fish market near the vegetable market is a good place to observe the daily life of Negombo residents, and it is also a material for humanistic photography. 1. Everyday Every day fishermen drive oruvas (outreach canoes) into the ocean in search of the fish Negombo is famous for. After the fishing is over, the silhouettes of the fishermen taking their boats back to the port constitute a moving picture. 2. Aquatic products Negombo is located at the northern end of the lagoon, so the things brought back by the fishermen may not all come from the sea. The lobsters and crabs in the lagoon are also famous.

"I went back to the bus station and looked for a hotel. As I was worried, I didn’t find anything. During this time, I simply went into the village coconut grove and wandered along the path. I accidentally found a small and quiet temple with an exquisite large one with a height of more than ten meters. Standing Buddha. I came across a list of hawkers selling some kind of cooked, powder-flavored bean snacks, mixed with dried chili, dried shrimp, coconut meat and bay leaves. It was a rare delicacy I saw in Lanka (a small bag of 1.1 yuan). I also repaired my pair of worn-out sneakers (5.7 yuan) in a run-down shoe repair shop. The cheerful shoe repair brother has a much better English than me. I am ashamed!"

Reasons to Recommend: Most of the residents of Negombo believe in Catholicism, so the Buddhist temples here are quite special. Angel Kalam Temple is the largest Buddhist temple in the Negombo area. There is a 6-meter-long reclining Buddha in the temple, as well as countless exquisite Buddhist murals and statues of kings of various dynasties.
