Early this morning, with a packed breakfast, we begin today's activities.

Here's a glimpse of our day -

Our next stop is the historic city of Galle, a UNESCO World Heritage site. This city was built by the Portuguese and fortified by the Dutch and is a great example of the fusion of European styles and South Asian influences.

  • Galle Fort - We visit the mighty Galle Fort, a historical, archaeological and architectural heritage monument, which even after standing for over 400 years, maintains its grandiosity thanks to the extensive reconstruction work done by Archaeological Department of Sri Lanka.

We stay overnight in Mirissa.
