Exploring Galle Fort: Part 2

IMG_4316

Galle Fort is replete with cute cafes, colorful houses and lots of boutiques. One can easily cover the whole Galle Fort on foot. I managed to cover almost 80% of this area on foot, capturing the beauty of this picturesque town. From Lighthouse to famous All Saints’ Church, Galle managed to impress me with its rich history. In every corner of the street, one can spot either a charming building or a cafe. Galle must be included in your Sri Lanka itinerary.

Exploring Galle Fort: Part 1

Defying extremely hot and humid climate, I decided to explore Galle Fort, one of Sri Lanka’s major tourist attractions.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the fort was originally built by the Portuguese in the 16th century to defend Galle.
As I have captured numerous images of this fort, I would like to split up this article in two parts.
Thanks to Archaeological Department of Sri Lanka, the monument has been remarkably maintained. I will suggest you to visit this place between the months of October and March.

One Day In Bentota

Bentota – a small resort town located in Sri Lanka – woos a large number of tourists from all parts of the globe. Pristine beach and watersports activities are the major attractions for the tourists visiting this place.

Situated just 65 kilometer away from South of Colombo, Bentota’s clean and quiet environment were the main factors that motivated me to visit this place. My brief one day visit was enough to explore this tiny town. It was off season when I landed in Bentota. As expected I found a handful of tourists, relaxing on the beach.

Soon after deboarding the train, I had a brief conversation with a local guy, who guided me to a villa. The tidy vila, owned by a couple, was quite impressive from inside. To my surprise, I was the only guest staying at their villa.

During my stay in Bentota, I spent most of the time on the beach and looking at the waves, which were crashing on the shores. Adding further joy to my journey to this place were some chilled local beer, fresh air and quiet environment.

If you are coming from Colombo, then I would strongly recommend you to board a train.

I guess it took around one hour to reach Bentota from the national capital. Train journeys in Sri Lanka are quite enjoyable. If you make a visit in off season, you will get plenty of accommodations at cheap prices. If you are making a trip between October-March then be prepared to pay more.
