Located 75 miles from Colombo, on the south west tip of the country, this historic city epitomises everything you would expect of a country like Sri Lanka; scents of spices wafting through the air, Dutch colonial buildings, exotic markets and sun-kissed beaches.  The city was extensively fortified by the Dutch during the 17th century. The fort is a world heritage site and is the largest remaining fortress in Asia built by European occupiers. The 36-hectare Fort occupies most of the hill that’s surrounded on three sides by the ocean. Just wandering through the streets yields one architectural surprise after another as you explore the amazing collection of structures dating back through the centuries. A Unesco heritage site, the city is a delight to explore on foot. Wandering through its rambling lanes, you will find stylish cafes, quirky boutique shops and richly restored hotels owned by local artists, foreigners and designers. Its no surprise, Galle tops many travellers must-see lists.
