We believe that food is the gateway to a culture and its people, and Sri Lanka is no different. With an abundance of local cuisine ranging from rotti to rice and curry’s, I’m sure it can be a little overwhelming at times. Not to worry, a few simple tips from us and you will be ready to tackle our culinary treats head on. The local wet markets sell an abundance of fresh fruits, vegetables and seafood for great prices, however feel free to barter with vendors if you are feeling up to it! Towns and local villages also have grocery stores that sell your everyday cooking essentials, but if street food is what you are looking for, we suggest you head down to the nearest kaday (or food stall.)
The world famous Galle Fort, a 16th century UNESCO World Heritage site is just a 30-minute drive
away. The old town and its fortifications display a unique blend of European architectural
styles fused with South Asian traditions. Some of these structures now house art galleries,
antique jewelry stores and quaint cafes, perfect for a day trip or an evening stroll.
