We rocked up to Galle around 10.30am and got a taxi (a tuk tuk, but the name has mysteriously changed in Galle) into Galle Fort. It was a bit like stepping out of reality. …
There have been far too many exceptional moments during this trip to pick a favorite in any category.

TravelPod Member ReviewsThenu Rest Guest House Galle
The room and house were absolutely spotless. The room was bright and airy, will sheets, towels, toilet roll, soap. The family were friendly. The location was ideal.
