Galle Fort

Whether you’re heading to southern coast for a long weekend getaway or a quick escape from the hectic Colombo city life, Galle Fort offers travellers a myriad of experiences and excursions to partake in.

Travelling to Galle from Colombo?

As Colombo is the commercial capital of the island, all major transport systems commence from the city. You can travel to Galle via road, rail or even air! The Southern Expressway provides a quicker way to reach the south coast of Sri Lanka, however, if you’re heading out early and got a few extra hours on your hands, opt to travel on the Old Galle Road. From changing landscapes to experiencing life in hamlets; an enriching adventure awaits.
