    To feel the history of this town in the old town of Galle Museum are closed under renovation, so here there. Not is selling because the big antique shop is like a museum. I think coin and every imaginable household goods includes everything. Feels like time has stopped for a few hundred years older than the building itself,. Admission is free, but jewellery shops, such as it, please stop by on the way back about voice is multiplied. This is because after seen 20 minutes if you want stop shopping between.

    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.

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.
