You can take it easy on this relaxing bus tour of Colombo – there’s no walking required. All you need to do is sit back, and gaze out the window at the capital’s top sights. Ride though the Pettah district and feast your eyes on the famous bazaar, where stalls are overflowing with candy-coloured clothes and pyramids of powdery spices. You’ll also drive past the Town Hall, the whitewashed Clock Tower, and the green gardens of Viharamahadevi Park. See the many Buddha statues at Gangaramaya Temple, and marvel at the grand Old Parliament. The Cinnamon Gardens are impressive, too. A former cinnamon plantation, this place is a maze of colonial mansions and shaded avenues. Your final stop will be the famous Jami Ul-Alfar Mosque, easily recognised by its striking red-and-white brickwork.
