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.

Lisbon's Favorite Food Tour: the 10 Tastings

We enjoyed the tour very much thanks to our knowledgeable guide. Camila knows the city very well, she showed us several interesting places during the tour. She talked about history, local points of interest etc.
Food we tried was delicious and we visited some very local places. This tour is absolutely recommended. Try to book it for your first day in Lisbon so that you can visit again places on your next days.
