Galle district lies in the southern most part of Sri Lanka. The district is often visited to experience the Dutch architecture and blue-green rimless coastline. Have your espresso on a breezy evening in those colonial style cafes in the Dutch Fort. I found the Dutch Fort as one of the best places to shop souvenirs, try Mansions for gift packs of flavored tea. If nothing, just walk on those cobbled streets and enjoy the lazy life of Sri Lanka.
Lazy beach town. Yes, that’s the word for this place. Lined by fine white sand and crystal blue water, you’d be tempted to take a dip in first sight (though I like Nilaveli beach in Trincomalee more). Stay at Dunes Unawatuna, a place run by a tourist friendly couple. Decored like a jungle, this place in itself is an attraction. Try one of those beach side eateries that offers best Sri Lankan seafood cuisines. Hang around in those evening cool pubs. Try Koh Surf Lounge. End it with a relaxing Ayurvedic massage. The rates of Ayurvedic massage are competitive and you can really try bargaining hard here. I paid just 1,700 SLR as compared to 2,500 SLR 🙂

Enroute to Bentota, visit this unique turtle conservation project. You’d be moved.
