Race through the Beautiful Ocean City Colombo

Pro-Am Serendib

RACE CITY - COLOMBO

This emerging city boasts a network of local and international sporting venues and events. Cricket, also known as the "Gentleman's Game" has been the national sport since 1800 and a natural obsession among sport enthusiasts everywhere. With the introduction of golf in the British Colonial Era, this iconic game has been enjoyed at the Royal Golf Club for over a century. True to our island nature, Lankans are natural born swimmers, and some have even made it to the Olympics. A plethora of leisure sports activities including rugby, tennis, basketball, hiking and horse riding will entice even the most ardent adventure seeker. Now we are proud to welcome IRONMAN 70.3 to Colombo.

HOW TO GET ABOUT

The roads in Sri Lanka are generally well maintained especially the Airport Expressway and Southern Highway. While you plan your transfers you are advised to take into consideration the occasional traffic congestion during peak hours mainly in the capital city of Colombo and its outskirts.

Public transportation by buses are available around the island, but might not be ideal for international travelers due to not complying to international standards of convenience and non-scheduled timings. Taxis and cabs are available on call 24x7 with digital meters. The other option of getting around in the city is by a three-wheeled vehicle which is commonly known as a Tuk Tuk. Most of the Tuk Tuks have digital meters and if not you are strongly advised to negotiate the fare for the drop off location before you start the journey. This will be an ideal option for short distance traveling.

You can contact and consult with your Official Travel Partner if you wish to book your pre/post-tours and transfers within the island, where you will be given the option of booking domestic air transfers and scenic train rides to your desired locations.

It is highly recommended you book your transfers with our Official Travel Partner, Hayleys Tours to ensure that your transfers are pre-booked and taken care of by professionals with optimum convenience and security in line with the local standards recommended for tourists and international travelers.
