If you are looking for a fusion of nature, culture, history art and shopping in one place, there could be no place other than Galle. A world within a world, it is no exaggeration to say that one almost walks into the days of the colonial domination of Ceylon at the Galle Dutch Fort. Food and shopping is abundantly available on the sides of the marble laden walkways. The beach is not to be missed, but if you want to see a perfect horizon, perhaps you may want to go that way in the morning or the evening.
