“Charming Little Town”

Old Town of Galle and its Fortifications
Reviewed 6 April 2018

Though this is a charming little place but they can close pretty early. I was here in March and it was very hot during the day time. It cooled down a bit in evening but soon after that everything (minus restaurants) start to get closed.

Galle was my favourite place of all in Sri Lanka. It is a beautiful and magical place, with the lighthouse, the views of the sea, the beach and the trees. Well worth visiting and staying overnight in the old town. There is a good selection of restaurants and cafes and it is an interesting place to walk around.

We went in the evening. It was crowded with tourists and we had a nice walk up to the light house with a ocean view and a pleasant breeze. Its a good place for people watching. Its a nice hangout place after visiting the Galle shopping streets. Fort Galle is wort visiting when in Srilanka.
