Galle countryside by Bus, Cycle and Tuk Tuk -  Cycling in Galle - Cycle to galle

This is a 7-hour program that commences in the morning and finishes in the early evening. The first segment is a local bus ride to the rural out-backs of Galle. It’s a fun way to intermingle with the locals and is amusing and interesting. A local will accompany you, so no fears, just enjoy. On arrival at your destination you will be welcomed by the village hosts who will invite you into their humble abode where you will be hosted for a light meal of boiled Cassava or Jak fruit, which you can help, make. While the host prepares the dish it’s time to cycle around the village for some interesting sightseeing. Cycle through Rubber Plantations and see how the womenfolk tap rubber sap, pedal to a Cinnamon Estate to see how true Ceylon Cinnamon is grown and if you are lucky maybe see the processing too and enjoy a cup of Pure Cinnamon tea. Stop at the village temple and the rice fields to see them being worked on before proceeding to the children’s nursery school close by. Here you can engage with the toddlers, sing along and spend some creative time with them. On returning enjoy the meal with the family over an informal chitchat before leaving for Galle in a tuk-tuk.
