The flag-lowering ceremony is unique to the Galle Face Hotel. I heard different versions of when and how this ceremony got started at the hotel.

All the shop owners were so enthusiastic about our visit (we were the first to come in the early morning), and were cutting all kinds of fruit for us to taste. And I thoroughly enjoyed the free food samples.
