Galle Fort - a very unexpected and pleasant surprise Sep 05, 2013
I love arriving at places knowing very little about them and then simply exploring what there is to see. From the moment my tuk-tuk driver entered the Fort Area I was enthralled by the structure of the Fort, the Dutch architecture, the diversity of religions and people inside the fort, the magnificent beach setting and the happiness of the day trippers, swimming, walking, playing cricket and eating. The Fort has a significant Muslim presence and a Mosque in addition to the old Dutch Reformed Church. The beaches along the fort are nice, suitable for swimming although there is a little bit of coral around so one should be careful of cuts. Thankfully the Fort survived the 2004 Tsunami and provides a great backdrop to the town and overlooks the Galle Cricket Ground - a magnificent international venue. Inside the Fort are many restaurants and shops of good quality and not unreasonable prices (check out prices before believing that shops outside are cheaper). I tried a few restaurants that were very good. Villas and hotels also abound within the Fort. There is no charge at all for entering or wandering around the Fort,
