Colombo Fort, Colombo

(3.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Stroll around the old commercial and administrative heart of the city, Colombo Fort. Attractions in the area include the president's house, general post office, Colombo Harbor, and the Dutch hospital complex. Gazing out on the water, you'll see a floating mosque seemingly rising from the sea. The area mainly features old colonial buildings; however, the struggle between new and old reveals itself in the modern buildings slowly making their way among the existing architecture.
