Sri Lanka: South Coast by gofargetlost


Star 1


The old town of Galle is a cute little quarter in southern Sri Lanka. What was once a Dutch colonial outpost is now a thriving local community of poets, artists, gemstone dealers and boutique shop owners. There's a historic worshipping house for every religion dotted around the city, a ton of stray cats wandering about, unbelievably clean cobblestone streets, a decent beach (that could use a bit of a cleanup) and charming choices for accommodation.
