Galle, Sri Lanka’s original seaside destination, will get a makeover as the Minister of Ports & Shipping Rohitha Abeygunawardana announced the government’s intentions to create a tourism zone similar to the Colombo Port City. 

According to the minister, the government has decided to construct a 40-hectare tourism zone near the Galle harbor. The development is set to be a part of the Government’s National Policy. 

The proposed tourism zone, funded by private investors, will consist of shopping complexes, hotels, and housing complexes for tourists to enjoy.
