Being a city that boasts vibrant hues of diversity with the amalgamation of rich history and culture, Colombo is an idyllic destination that offers so much to see and do! The city traffic, however, can be a bit chaotic and become a major hindrance to exploration. The best way to tackle this situation is by choosing a tuk-tuk to explore the city. Being a compact vehicle, tuk-tuks can squeeze through traffic and can swing by at dizzying speeds when you need it. The open interior of the vehicle could get you up close and personal with the sounds and smells of the city offering you a truly authentic travel experience!
Since Colombo is a popular tourist destination, most of the tuk-tuk drivers can speak English and are familiar with interacting with tourists. With thorough knowledge about the city, they could also be your host if you wish to. Travellers also have the option of booking their tuk-tuk tour since most of the local tour operators have tuk-tuk tours – also known as ‘tuk-tuk safaris’ in their list of experiences. With these curated tour experiences, you could visit less touristy spots, rather rare and enticing spots and you could even listen to interesting stories that revolve around popular attractions from your host.
With the tuk-tuk tours, tourists could also visit popular street food joints and savour local delicacies with ease and they could witness Colombo in its most authentic version! Travellers can join in for this exhilarating experience by contacting a local tour operator.
