A holiday in Southern Province usually includes visits to important natural attractions, such as wildlife sanctuaries sheltering hundreds of species of birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians. Visitors looking to enrich their Southern Province itinerary with a few cultural sites generally head to Galle, which thrived as a major port during the Dutch colonial period.
