  • The shop has a full range of products, including souvenirs, tea, cosmetics and jewellery. Products are authentic, especially jewelry. Instead of offering their own worthless certificates as other stores do, they will provide an officially certified certificate (GIC). The price is reasonable, and the prices in the local supermarket are basically the same (for example, Arpico). The shopkeeper is very enthusiastic and kind, and will advise you according to your needs. Our shopping experience is very enjoyable. At the end of the shop owner Mr. Naizer (Small meat Oh ~) also tells us where to buy cheap suitcase, where to do a good Sri Lanka massage. We had a massage that night and bought a cheap and practical suitcase outside the old town the next day. It is highly recommended that the parents who go to Gamma must visit this shop

  • In Halle so many shops, because you don't know exactly where sold good stuff. About this shop have learned from reviews and decided to visit. Very nice assortment, very extensive. There is quite a cute little things. Prices are not inflated. The owner is very sociable, gives good advice, not impose their goods. Bought a lot of things. Recommend.

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.
