Unawatuna is located just 150 kilometers from Colombo, in Sri Lanka’s Galle District. The city is served by bus and rail from the bigger cities which feature international airports, such as Colombo. Once in the city, getting around is best done by public buses and local small taxis.

The Martin Wickramasinghe Folk Museum is a very historical site, featuring some ancestral history of the home’s former owner. After World War II, this place remains the only house to have survived the atrocities.

The Yatagala Raja Maha Viharaya is an ancient Buddhist temple, and a popular destination for those visiting this area. The temple was once built by royalty, and used to serve as worship site for the royals.
