Experience riding in a tuk-tuk, a typical vehicle used in Asia, on this guided trip around Negombo’s characteristic fishing village. Step into local life as you visit a local fish market and important historical sites, including the Sri Singama Kali Amman Kovil and Angurukaramulla Temple. Get picked up directly from your hotel by tuk-tuk, then move on to explore the countryside. Upon arrival in the town of Negombo, head to the buzzing Negombo Fish Market. Continue to the Negombo Dutch Fort, where you can wander through the fort while listening to the stories behind this fort from your guide. Afterward, stop at the Dutch Canal, which was an important link in the transportation route that supplied the Dutch colonial administration. The ride continues to Sri Singama Kali Amman Kovil, a major Hindu religious site. Here, you’ll be able to witness and capture the stunning murals and sculptures of the site. Later, visit Angurukaramulla Temple to uncover some of its 300 years of history. Your final visit before drop-off is at St. Mary’s Church, one of the largest cathedrals in Sri Lanka and a prominent religious site. Enjoy a sweet king coconut drink during the ride back to your accommodation.
