Sri Lanka, being an island, is known for her amazing beaches and views of the sea. However, in Colombo, it isn’t always easy to find a place where you can enjoy the crashing of the waves and most of all, an undisturbed view of the sunset. Galle Face Green thus attracts a large number of people, especially during the evening, although it is rarely empty, even in the afternoon when there is very little shelter from the scorching sun.
The busy and crowded capital city of Colombo doesn’t have many spaces to relax and enjoy the outdoors unless you go to a club such as a Golf club or a Rowing club for which you would usually need membership. The concept of Diyatha Uyana was welcomed as a novel and refreshing change for Colombo city dwellers and tourists probably due to this reason.
