Thinking of doing a one day trip to Galle Fort, Sri Lanka. A Galle day trip from the nearby beach town of Unawatuna, Mirissa or Hikkaduwa is a great way to see a different side to Sri Lanka. The boutique hotels in Galle and general living costs are higher than in the rest of Sri Lanka. There are however lots of things to do that make it ideal for a Galle day trip. Galle Fort was built by the Dutch in the 18 th century as a headquarters and stayed culturally removed from the normal towns of Sri Lanka.

Hi Everyone, I am starting this topic hoping that somebody with local knowledge and experience can very kindly advise on some important questions we have before making a decision on whether or not it would be possible for us to relocate to Sri Lanka. We are a small family, myself Italian , my wife British and our 2 year old son British Passport , planning to move from London, UK to Sri Lanka for a change of lifestyle. We have traveled once to Sri Lanka before and loved the country but of course relocating there would be a big thing. We would greatly appreciate if you could share you knowledge or personal experience if you were in a similar situation as us on how we could go about building a life there despite the restrictions.

Doubts about moving to Sri Lanka

Ceylon, known as Sri Lanka since , is the land of tea, cinnamon and smiles. To my greatest delight it has a relatively well-developed railway network and is therefore practically begging to be explored by train. Since , there has been a railway company which was first used by British colonial masters for the transport of goods. Since the s, Sri Lankan Railways has taken over the operation of the island's railway network.
Now, almost 30 years down the road, many of the old crumbling mansions have been renovated into boutique hotels, but the cobblestone streets with pastel-coloured houses are still as picturesque as a street can possibly get. What makes this place so unique? We talk to some locals to find out the stories behind these century-old buildings. They serve tea on the verandah of their family house at 66 Leyn Baan street where they have lived their whole lives, and we ask them what it is that makes Galle such a special place. During that time, there were about six Jaffna Tamil families living here.
