Galle Sri Lanka
Galle is the capital city of Southern province in Sri Lanka. Tourism in Sri Lanka became famous mainly because of the lovely beaches around the island. Among those beaches Galle does a major part. The city is not only famous for lovely sand beaches but also for its historical fort, ancient buildings and galleries.
After the Tsunami disaster, Galle tourism completely wiped away and Sri Lankan tourism drop down to zero. But after few years later Sri Lanka became a major travel spot among Asian countries again.
Before you plan to come to Sri Lanka, refer the best reviews and make a perfect travel plan. This is my list of fun things to do in down south Sri Lanka.
How to go to Galle ?
As a local tourist, I personally like to visiting Galle to spend my short vacations. I am a resident of Colombo. So normally I can travel to Galle within 1 hour using Southern express by taking the exit from Pinnaduwa. After few minutes drive from the exit you can enter the Galle city. Since it is easily accessible many travelers like to go to Galle and tick their bucket list items.
When is the best time to go ?
As a tropical country, Sri Lanka is sunny and warm major part of the year. By avoiding the monsoon season you can enjoy more. Galle is always good for person who likes to enjoy with hot weather.
Between June to august there are some beach festivals happening. So if you go around that time you can enjoy a lot.
