Experience this…historic Galle

From timeless ruins, to memorable beaches, sumptuous spiced cuisine to friendly hosts and a diverse wildlife, Sri Lanka packs a cultural punch for travellers searching for new adventures. With an impressive eight UNESCO World Heritage sites, this diminutive destination offers ancient sites to explore, legendary temples to visit and beaches galore for a touch of downtime.

Galle, renowned for its Dutch-colonial buildings, is a historic city best discovered on foot. Incent Tours recommends a tour of the old Dutch quarter, known as the Fort, and home to the Dutch-reformed church which was originally built in 1640.

Enjoy the bustle of the Dutch Market set under a 300-year old columned roof and take in the grandeur of the ancient mosques before walking down to Flag Rock, a picturesque spot to settle and catch a sunset.

Accommodation options abound but luxury travellers won’t want to miss the opportunity to stay at Amangalla, a former home of the Dutch Governor and officers which dates back to 1684.

The property was completely restored and reopened as a luxury boutique hotel in 2014 by Aman Resorts and within its 28 rooms, guests can enjoy all the charm of the former fittings blended with the ultimate in modern comforts.
