The spice aroma, trendy Galle hotels, and heritage sites will make you linger longer in exotic Galle. Located on the southwest tip of Sri Lanka, the town gives off the vibe of a medieval European destination, marked by glorious colonial buildings. Decorated with ramparts and home to a picturesque lighthouse, the Old Town of Galle has the World Heritage distinction. In this general area are some excellent hotels in Galle. Head out to the National Museum for their collection of religious items and the Ariyapala Mask Museum to watch the art of Sri Lankan mask-making.
Galle’s most iconic landmark is the 17th century Dutch Fort, which is situated on a promontory considered to be the oldest section of city. Just wandering around this Heritage Site is an experience in itself, especially during sunsets, when dramatic colours glisten against its walls. The fort remains to be the home of an active community where you can find trendy cafés, offices, boutiques and Galle accommodation establishments. Spirituality has remained strong in this old city, being home to significant temples like the Kalutara Temple and Seenigama Temple. Other fascinating structures worth seeing include the Peace Pagoda, the 17th century Dutch Reformed Church adorned with gravestone floor.
Fly into Koggala Airport or transfer from Colombo’s Bandaranaike International, where there are train services that travel around the coast to Galle and air-conditioned buses that take the Southern Expressway.
