Watch a puppet show and visit the Dutch Fort, followed by sunset watching. With its exotic architectural mix, Galle epitomizes Sri Lanka's multicultural history more than any other city.
You'll kick off with a traditional puppet show in a puppet theatre. It takes great skill to dance the masked marionettes, which have been used for generations in traditional Bali and Thovil healing rituals.
Then enjoy a guided walk through the partially walled Galle Fort, which dates from the Dutch colonial period in the 17th century. Visit old churches and peek into old merchant houses where generations of Moorish families still live.
Round off your day by taking your seat near the fort as the sun begins to set. Tuck into some local snacks and sweet treats, sip on locally grown Ceylon tea or treat yourself to a glass of wine as it all unfolds.
