Galle Fort

A two-hour drive south of Colombo is the unmissable seaside town of Galle; its Fort area is a UNESCO World Heritage site that dates back to the 16th century. Lining its enchanting grid of time-warped, cobblestoned streets are Dutch colonial houses, churches and historic buildings in a variety of architectural styles, not to mention hotels, boutiques, restaurants and bars. Walk along the fortifications for far-reaching views of the Indian Ocean and stunning sunsets.
