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.

Barcelona's Favorite Food Tour: 10 Tastings

Our tapas tour with Karina was awesome and delicious! Strolling neighborhoods and visiting markets and local hangouts away from tourist crowds were A+! Sweets and savory tapas, hot chocolate, wine, and aperitifs! Lots of fun and lots of laughter. An amazing adventure indeed!

Best of Budapest: Highlights & Hidden Gems

We had high expectations for this tour after having such good experiences with previous tours/guides. Gabor was late, spoke A LOT about himself, and walked 30-50 feet ahead of us throughout the whole tour. Didn't make it feel personal at all.
