Oh ya so Valentines day in Sri Lanka! Well the popular spot for many are the Cinema halls in the past. But *BAHM* this time it falls on a poya day. So if your plan was going to cinema its not happening this year as all cinema halls are closed on poya days. Also this time another famous Valentines day spot Viharamahadevi park is shut down from the 13th to the 19th due to constructions. Therefore this time you have to find another option. Here are some suggestions from us. Keep checking this blog as we will be updating this post as we get more and more suggestions till the 14th morning.

High Tea at Galle Face Hotel and Galadari Hotel

Two of the best value for money high tea spots in Colombo. Don't forget you can't just walk in to this place but have to pre book for it. There's plenty of argument which is the best of the two and Galadari looks a cheaper option and Galle face provides a better sea view and great ambiance. So we will recommend both. Galadari High tea is 1200 per person and Galle face hotel costs 1400 per person.
