But, I hate making judgements without fact, so we decided to go and see Galle Fort, even though we were convinced it was going to be an over-touristy, over-expensive, noisy, polluted place....
Inside the fort is a still fully working city.. Modern with signs, lights, cafes, shops, wifi-signs etc.. But at the same time, it's a total time-warp. All of the buildings are as they were hundreds of years ago, and MUST be maintained/restored to conform with the historical nature of the fort.
It's quite simply, stunning..
Shall we go for a dip? Why not?!?! It's not everyday you get the opportunity to swim outside a fort!
As we left Galle, fighting the traffic once more, Roh and I had a chuckle.. Galle's not so bad afterall!!
And for those of you who haven't visited yet, definitely consider staying a night at one of the super cute (and not overly expensive) guesthouses within the fort.
