  • Great area to have a stroll and get an ancient City vibe
  • Its a good place. But personally I don't think galle fort super scenic. Very crowded and expensive foods and other items.. people are not friendly as other part in sri lanka... I don't know what is your opinion but I think its not worth spending so much time in fort rather than spending your valuable time to enjoy beaches...
