Galle is a historic walled city, a UNESCO world heritage site and a one hour bus ride from Mirissa – this made it the perfect location for a day trip! We arrived in the heat of the day, and after a walk around the ramparts decided to take a tuk tuk around the town to see some of the highlights. We visited a temple, the lighthouse, a viewpoint and a couple of churches that were established by Dutch and Portuguese settlers. After refuelling on crepes we wandered around the shops looking at jewellery (Sri Lanka is famous for its gemstones) and enjoying the atmosphere of this beautiful town.

Very cool! Is that a skull and crossbones on the grave, or a sad-looking little dude?
You are so tactful about the decision to take a tuk-tuk tour! Karen and Reubs would have cheerfully walked all around Galle but Julie found the heat and humidity rather challenging. Galle was such a lovely mixture of the historic old town and the trendy boutique cafes and shops.
