Markets in Galle, Sri Lanka

Just like most other cities, Galle offers you a good place to get your daily groceries, souvenirs, art and clothing: The local markets. The markets have a broad range of products, and people aren’t scared of negotiating about the prices. Some stalls haven’t priced their products, so they can change the price depending on how “wealthy” you look. Your main goal should be around 60% of the first offer.

The Kanthisiri market is a typical market. People in stalls, selling both regional products and international brands. This market is also known for its broad range of different fabrics like cotton. But there is another market: the Dutch Market. That’s right! A Dutch market in Sri Lanka. On this market, there are loads of fruit and vegetables available. The prices aren’t fixed, so feel free to negotiate.

Stunning views! - photography tour

We had a very nice tour of Porto with Andre who took us to a lot of beautiful places to take pictures that we would never have found on our own. He provided a great historical background and suggested other places to see while we were there. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Andre.
