We strongly recommend a day trip to Galle, the capital city of Southern Sri Lanka. The Galle Fort is a world heritage site and the largest remaining fortress in Asia built by European settlers. Prominent landmarks include the natural harbor, the National Maritime Museum, St. Mary's Cathedral founded by Jesuit priests and one of the main Shiva temples in Sri Lanka. Galle is also great for shopping: there are numerous Jewellery shops selling precious and semi-precious stones; Colombo outlet stores such as Barefoot and wonderful antique shops. There are also fine restaurants for lunch or dinner.
Our staff can arrange the trip for you.
