  • Inside the Fort are many tourist shops here different from shops and also funny. It's all free of charge. Other miscellaneous things (all maybe you might waste) may be mixed with the "look" "click here!" and staff. "Well old'm ', and without asking me, uncle natural stone processing demonstration also sells, especially grandmother's lace knitting demonstration was interesting, but thin voice, say"3000 rupees, so seem to be.

  • Los of intesting historic items without explanations. Free to visit if you exit through the related jewelery shop.
  • Nice place. Find more old things at there. Really cool experience at there.
  • plenty of antiques, masks, gems, handicrafts,etc. and nice people. can spend a good 30 minutes browsing. For shoppers, nice variety in a compact place. worth dropping in, if you are in the vicinity.
  • Good place to have a outdoor gathering but need to be quite since the court is next on it.
  • Good collection of antiques and historical items. worth a quick visit.

Where to stay in Galle

A handful of accommodations can be found within the walls of the historic fort at Galle, including upmarket hotels and simple guesthouses, although the relatively few options usually can't cater to the number of visitors to the old town. Unless you reserve your spot well in advance, chances are you'll be looking just north of the fort where, closer to the waterfront, sit a range of upscale boutiques with sea views, and further back, a good number of simpler guesthouses and hotels. Nearby beach towns, and Colombo, remain popular places to stay among visitors just wanting to take a day trip to Galle.
