Shopping


Beaches, nature and wildlife aren’t the only attractions on this resplendent little island. Visitors can also indulge in a spot of shopping at the various malls and arcades in and around the city. Colombo and other large towns have many specialty shops and places that sell a variety of locally manufactured items like hand-woven fabrics, traditional Sri Lankan batik, handcrafted ornaments and jewelry, traditional masks, plus other interesting items. The prices will depend on where you shop and of course, don’t give in without a good bargain.



Through Our Winners' Eyes

Shopping


Colombo has so much to offer visitors and I’m not talking about souvenirs and stuff. We strolled through some really impressive shopping malls and modern department stores. I was pleasantly surprised at the amazing range of clothes, shoes and other products bearing international labels. But what really took my breath away were the fabulous bargains on locally produced items such as handcrafted gifts, masks, Sri Lanka’s famous tea, batiks and even exotic gems such as blue sapphires which the island is famous for.

There were superb restaurants and tea houses serving a cross section of everything. The choice was very impressive.

Specialty tea, fast food, seafood, Japanese, Indian, Chinese and of course authentic Sri Lankan, which by now I had come to love. At the end of our shopping tour, we were treated to tea at the famous Dilmah Tea House which offered us an amazing choice of teas and teatime snacks.
