During my short visit in Central Colombo between 25/08/13 to 29/08/13 I decided to visit the local Zoo on Wednesday 28/08/13, i arrived early to avoid the crowds however I was surprised how many local families were waiting with many children when I arrived. On checking out the admission fee I'm surprised with the cost between the locals & foreigners & I paid Rs 2000, when I asked the staff why the cost is higher for foreigners they just said they just follow the rules !!! [Imagine over charging more for foreigners in Australia that would be called discrimination & many people would object]. The visit was OK and spent around 90min's looking around, the most enjoyable part for me was witnessing the Elephant bath time, the overall activity around the Zoo wasn't that exciting with many enclosures empty or animals sleeping, of course the gardens were crowded with many children & families...... Glad I went but wouldn't visit again & didn't see anything extra for my Rs 2000 !!!!
