Sri Lanka, near Unwatuna, south coast. Galle Fort boasts of a long history stretching back centuries, even before the Portuguese, Dutch and British Colonial days. Today it is home to the historic 90 acre preserved Dutch Fort, declared an archaeological reserve by the UN since 1969. This walled city is the slow beating heart of Galle, bearing witness to its past through the near crumbling architecture of grand old buildings, street names and Dutch churches. Galle is the only place in Sri Lanka that still retains an old world atmosphere. The sounds of Galle are the call to prayer from Mosques, Pali chants from Buddhist temples, fish sellers and tinkers hawking their wares on Main Street. Its fine old colonial mansions, Galle Fort Hotel, Ammangalle, and Lighthouse Hotel nearby make Galle Fort a hauntingly beautiful escape into the past. Enter through the 'old' Dutch Gate or the 'new' English one. The Villa is close to the Ramparts and small beaches that are great for a morning dip.

Other Activities: Yala National Park, snake farm, turtle hatchery, folk museum
