How to Reach Galle Face Green in Colombo

How to reach Galle Face Green in Colombo is really a simple question. The closest airport to Galle Face Green is Bandaranaike International Airport. From there, Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct is a one-hour drive away via E03 Highway. Colombo Harbor is closer at just a thirteen-minute drive along Colombo Port Main Road and closer still from Fort Railway Station – just twelve minutes on foot. From here, how to reach Galle Face Green is no longer quite as vexing.

From the Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct, Galle Face Green is very close indeed. Buses ply along this road frequently. The closest bus stop to Galle Face Green is Galle Face. Galle Face Hotel is one of Sri Lanka’s oldest and most popular hotels. As a result, all cab drivers and Tuk-Tuk drivers know it very well indeed.

Galle Face Green is right next to the Indian Ocean and very close to Colombo Harbor as well as Galle Fort Railway Station. So, on reaching the mainland of Sri Lanka, a lot of people quite naturally want to go to Galle Face directly as it becomes convenient for food and lodging. The fact that this is one of Colombo’s hottest tourist spots does not hurt things either.

      Was a mistake going to this destination. Nothing great. TT agent in Lanka misguided us on some issues. None except the cab driver who was a nice guy.

      Overall trip was good but with a few sour moments. Also as mentioned in the inclusions we weren't provided with bed decorations and honeymoon cake, this was not expected

      It was an excellent planning and support provided by the Daya Holidays team. Special mention to the planner & co-ordinator Madumalee who has covered all the places we wanted to visit in the short trip of 4 days. The Vehicle provided for the journey was excellent & the hotel bookings were good with minor hiccups here & there but rectified on notice. The plan was well executed by the Chauffer Sheryl who was along with us for the entire trip right from picking up us from the airport till send off at the mid night after 4 days. Few cons are : We Couldnt see a glimpse of our travel insurance as assured... Water Bottles, Sim cards and other things which are mentioned immediately available at airport are not immediately available. However we have followed up to receive the same. Overall it was a good experience :-)

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      This was my first experience with TravelTriangle. I liked the convenience of getting connected with several travel agents sitting at my desk. However, my experience with the travel agent was not very good, details of which are mentioned below. I found the travel agent very inflexible with respect to the payment terms. They were very insistent on accepting cash payment in USD, that too, right at the airport itself. I requested them to accept partial payment online, but they did not agree. I requested them to accept payment by card but they did not agree. I requested them to accept the payment in Indian currency, which option was offered by their representative himself earlier, but they included double currency conversion in their calculations, that too with bad rates, thereby increasing the due amount by a considerable amount. As a result, I was left with no other option but to buy USD at the airport (which, as is common knowledge, is not a good place to get a good exchange rate). To top it all, their representative who was supposed to collect the payment from me did not even turn up at the airport! Had they told me earlier, at least I could have bought dollars from a place offering better rates. The vehicle they allotted to me for my tour was not one of the makes they had promised earlier. While the make wasn't such a big issue for me, a bigger issue was the condition of the vehicle. Its shockers were not in a good shape and made a lot of noise on smaller bumps too. In addition, while they had previously promised that the driver-cum-guide would know English, the driver who actually turned up knew very little English. I had to ask them to get the vehicle and driver changed. The worst part of my experience was that on two occasions during the trip, they had booked a room category lower than what they had promised to me. This happened despite the fact that I had categorically asked them beforehand to mention the room category on their quote. Not just that, they failed to get me the agreed-upon room category even after I contacted them from the hotel.

      Had a great trip. Aziz travels took time to plan out a neat itenary and cover most of the places. Special mention to Khafil(driver/tour guide) who became more a friend through the trip and we had a safe and a nice company through out the tour. The vehicle was good and very comfortable.

      TT has given me a memorable trip. That was awesome experience. Agents should be even more friendly. I was following up for an information. If that info was given by travel agent without me following up several times, it would have been even more good. People at Sri Lanka we're charging us more for everything. TT should include entry fee for all Itinerary. Beach view room given by hotel.
