GALLE FORT THE PICTURESQUE HISTORIC EPICENTRE OF SRI LANKA’S FABULOUS DEEP SOUTH

The picturesque and historic Galle Fort on Sri Lanka’s south coast is the epicentre of many tourist dreams of finding the perfect place to explore this tropical Paradise.

The fort itself, redolent of a tripartite colonial past—the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British—is one of Sri Lanka’s eight UNESCO World Heritage sites, and full of charm and character.

And as the latest edition of Condé Nast Traveller reports: “With all the buzz around the north and east opening up for the first time, Sri Lanka is hotter than ever. We skip the crowds and return instead to the classic south, which is quietly churning out a tide of hits.”
