  • This is a good little shop to shop for local products. The price similar to other tourist shops around Galle.  more »
  • From my point of view-uninviting gift shop. Well ... like them shops on Arbat-for Europeans. Everything somehow prilizano not feel local color. Goods quite ordinary and uninteresting-magnets, textiles, footwear, jewellery, spices and tea (a little overpriced), carved and ceramic baubles (cheap), nasty quality leather (However in Sri Lanka another skin It happens) ... Souvenirs-souvenir: specially made for acquisition by foreigners. On the fan.

  • I really liked this place, and their variety of souvenirs, spices, tea, beauty products, bags, even elephant dung paper :D I found the prices more reasonable than in other souvenir shops, but of course higher than at the supermarket (especially for spices and tea)
  • Good place to pick up souvenirs but wait and get your tea & spices in the supermarket.
  • One of the cheapest places to purchase gems,jewellery and souvenior items. I personally recomond Orchid House
  • Excellent collection of jewellery and wide range of quality tea packs
  • Genuine and honest about all they sell. Excellent for inexpensive semi-precious gems and jewellery.

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.
