Perfectly reachable by Sri Lanka’s only highway, the old town of Galle is a must-see location in Sri Lanka. The old Dutch fort is a wonderful eyecatcher with small shops, old colonial houses and other remaining structures within its fortified walls. Take a walk around the sides of the fort, or dine in one of the better restaurants in the fort. If you’re not hungry, some of the many small ice cream shops, creperies, and caf├ęs will please your experience.

You’ll need about 2-3 hours to enjoy Galle.

Galle is easy to reach from Negombo, Colombo, Mirissa, and Tangalle with the highway bus.
