Slave island is a town in Colombo, an area however not very popular amongst the tourist. It is a very lively neighborhood and a common sight is to see children playing cricket on the streets. You may find it hard to locate the place, but your local guide should be able to help you.
The true essence of local living can be experienced here with colorful buildings by the side of narrow backstreets. Make sure you snap some pictures here and some kids might even want to be in the frame! Oh, and grab a mango “achcharu” on the way – a local favorite!
