You wouldn't get the same experience as in Thailand in Sri Lanka. However, we are just 20-30 minutes away from Galle Fort. You can always experience a walk around in Galle Fort and there are plenty of restaurants, boutiques where you can enjoy a dining experience. We do arrange logistic services in case if you want to try out something from outside. You can always consult our front office team to assist you with best recommendations.
I hope above information is helpful to you.

Look forward to welcoming you soon.
