Stop at: Galle Dutch Fort
The Galle Dutch Fort, also known as the Galle Fort or Galle Fortifications, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in the coastal city of Galle, in the southern part of Sri Lanka. The fort was built by the Portuguese in the 16th century and later expanded and fortified by the Dutch during their colonial rule in the 17th century. Visitors can explore the well-preserved fortifications, walk along the ramparts, and admire the Dutch colonial architecture. Inside the fort, you'll find charming narrow streets with colonial-era buildings, boutique shops, cafes, and art galleries. Key attractions within the fort include the Galle Lighthouse, Dutch Reformed Church, and the Galle Fort Clock Tower.

After visiting the Galle Dutch Fort, the tour typically proceeds to the Madu River, which is situated a short drive away. The Madu River is a picturesque estuary with mangrove forests and diverse flora and fauna. It's a haven for nature lovers and birdwatchers.
