陈之豪Kogler stilt fishermen is a very nice landscape. Before going to this attraction, many travel notes and guide reviews gave this attraction very poor evaluation. Before going, I was also very nervous, I don't know if it is worth it. On the way from Merissa to Galle, there will be many, many such tree trunks inserted in the middle of the sea. This is a very ancient method adopted by the people of Sri Lanka to obtain sardines long ago. Although such fishing methods are no longer in use today, it is undeniable that this stilt fisherman is indeed a very famous symbol and representative of Sri Lanka. Almost most travel magazines or books, as long as Sri Lanka is mentioned, will use pictures of stilt fishermen as the cover or introduction. Therefore, this has become a symbol of Sri Lanka. From a self-feeling point of view, this place is very worth visiting. Of course, if you are traveling by car or traveling on your own, it is meaningless to visit this attraction specially. We went with a group, so when we went there happened to be local people from Sri Lanka sitting on it and fishing. Although it was fake, the effect of the photos was very good. It is highly recommended that you can choose to go at sunset, the color of the sky and the sea and the back of the murloc, capturing this kind of light and shadow will produce very beautiful photography. You will see a lot on the way to Galle, and it happens that as long as there are stilt tree trunks, the sea area will be extra clean and clear, and very blue. Sri Lanka is located in the Indian Ocean, and Galle is also in the core area of the Indian Ocean, so the water here is very clear, magnificent, and very shocking. Of course, you can also experience the feeling on the fishing rod. RMB 100 is indeed a bit expensive, so it feels not very worthwhile. But Sri Lankans are indeed poor, and they are very warm and friendly, so I still leave a very good impression.

SmadOne of the most famous beaches in Sri Lanka. Here you can not only surf 🏄🏻, swim. You can also go out to sea to watch whales. We went to sea from Mirissa. Although only the tail of the whale was seen, it was a very good experience.

齐步走123We came here specifically to watch the sunset. It’s so beautiful that I don’t know how to describe it. The photos are all big shots. If you wake up early, it’s a good place to come and see the sunrise. The scenery of the Indian Ocean is really beautiful.

Dreamy seaside train from “Spirited Away” Sri Lanka has been praised by many travel magazines as “the country with the most beautiful train lines in the world”. This train route from Colombo to Galle has one of the most beautiful window scenery in the world. The train travels along the blue sea as if driving in the sea. It is said to be the inspiration for the sea train in Hayao Miyazaki's "Spirited Away". Driving on this century-old railroad track, the speed of the train is not fast, and rarely exceeds 30 km/h. When the train is moving, the door is not closed. You can learn from the locals and hang by yourself on the open door, and let the sea wind blow your hair. It is a really convenient way to enjoy the scenery.
