Fort Quarter in Colombo

Interesting
You'll have to climb up to the top floor of the Grand Oriental Hotel to contemplate the harbour, fortified by the Portuguese in the 16C, since it is off limits to the public. The Fort Quarter boasts fine examples of Victorian buildings dating back to the colonial era.
