... Fort district in particular, is the amount of white people there. Driving from the airport, I had seen no evidence of tourism whatsoever, but the minute I entered Galle white people seemed to pop out of nowhere, rambling along the seafront, cramped up in the back of tuk-tuks and bartering for fish at roadside stalls.
