Colombo Shopping Places (Sri Lanka)

While shopping in Colombo, Sri Lanka one should visit the Paradise Road, Good Market, and Majestic City are popular places to buy souvenirs. Colombo is the capital city of Sri Lanka and no tour of any capital city anywhere is complete without shopping in Pettah Market. Tourists can buy fresh produce, electronics, textiles, spices, and jewelry from this open-air market in Colombo. Shop for anything the heart wants at the best prices only at Colombo, Sri Lanka. There is little point in thinking about the budget while shopping in Colombo. When going out to shop, travelers will want to buy everything they see in this interesting city full of life and energy. The best thing is that not just women, but children enjoy trips to the mall as well. While most men may not love going out to shop, in Colombo, no one is an exception. Whether it is splurging for clothes and shoes, or trinkets, souvenirs, and memorabilia, shopping is a wholesome family activity.

Colombo is riddled with great places to shop. There are shopping malls all over the city and they are all great options. Liberty Plaza, Majestic City, Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct, and House of Fashions allow best shopping in Colombo. There are also specialized shopping plazas all over Colombo. Lakhpana Handcraft is hands down the best place for Handicraft items, whereas Jewel Qudsi and Sifani Jewelers are renowned jewelers in Colombo.

When street shopping in Colombo for handmade linen, clothes, bags, toys, and fine crafts, Barefoot has some of the most remarkable options available in all of Colombo, if not all of Sri Lanka.

      Excellent & Very Beautiful Country....!! The wild @ Sigriya having excellent and adventurous location. Cinnamon Citadel @ Kandy provide us very memorable welcome. Whether at Kandy was really excellent and we enjoyed a lot. Okary Tea Bush @ Nuwara eliya hotel was good. It's too cold place. Nice view from window. @ Bentota we stayed at two resorts-pandanus beach and cinnamon bay. Both properties are excellent. Cinnamon is very big property with all amenities. @ colombo we stayed at Marino Beach. At sight very slow process of check in. Rooms were not ready. But after check in property is excellent with rooftop pool. Over and above all stars goes toTravel Ceylon who has arranged this trip for us. Sales personal Mr. Chatura is having excellent knowledge and skill and ability to customize package according to our requirement. All members of trip are highly satisfied with the way they provided service. Last but not least, Mr. Dilipa our guide has help us a lot for roaming around all places according to interney. Finally Driver was also excellent and ride us safely during entire Journey. 7star appraisal to Travel ceylon. Cold Whether at Nuwara Eliya and Boating experience was awesome. Would definitely visit srilanka again If I get chance. Inspite of Bad happened in April, entire country is moving ahead to uplifting country. Thanks to all Local to whom we interact.

    • Trip to Colombo

      Sri Lanka is an island country..where the contours of the land itself forms a kind of sinewy poetry. A very special island that travellers, from Sinbad to Marco Polo, dreamed about and with similar aspirations, me and my fiancée decided to visit SL for our honeymoon. We explored different options and stumbled upon Travel Triangle, who seemed well versed with SL, were offering competitive prices. Had a Chat an online agent - Swati and within a day, we received 4 quotes from 4 Vendors. We decided to go forward with 'Direct Link' as the Travel Co-ordinator Anto, was polite/courteous, knowledgable and honest, was able to understand our requirements and provide the best tour schedule i.e 5 days and 4 nights at Colombo/Kandy - Nuwara Eliya - Nuwara Eliya - Bentota - Bentota/Colombo. This ensured that we were able to enjoy various topographies urban/hill station/mountains/beach. Anto co-ordinated end to end right from time we had initial chat to the time we completed the tour. We Had to pay 10% as Booking and the remaining amount was paid just before we boarded our flight to Colombo from Chennai. ( They do give option to pay the remaining amount on arrival in Colombo, however, with network issues, it might be tad difficult, esp in receiving OTPs et all) Mr Hafis was our assigned tour guide as well as transporter. He was a through professional, brilliant knowledge and insights on the tourist places. He was so amazing with providing all the statistics, dates, dimensions, USPs of the places that made us admire and appreciate the places even more than we would have probably done. Also, special mention about his driving skills, we spent so much time on road but not once we experienced any jerk or lack of comfort. All the Hotels were brilliant - Topaz (Kandy) , Galway Heights(Nuwara Eliya) and Pandanus Beach Resort & Spa (Bentota). Staff, Room/View from Room and Food. Word of caution - If you are a VEG like me, it is rather important that you let reception know about it , as and when you check-in the hotel. Direct Link are experts in chalking out the travel schedule in such a way that you enjoy the max number of tourist places in as little time as possible. Of all the travel options provided, we enjoyed the below mentioned the most - Ambevala Farm, Strawberry Farm Batik Factory and Gems Museum Bluefield Tea Estate ( Mohamed the Tea Guide was Brilliant) Ramboda, Devon and St Clair's Falls Gangaramaya Temple Gregory Lake Hanuman Temple and Sita Amman Kovil Kandy Lake, Temple of Tooth Relic and Kandyan Cultural Show, Upper Lake Drive Madu River Safari - CINNAMON ISLAND-BUDDHIST TEMPLE-HINDU TEMPLE - DELTA- FISH FARM Marine Drive Important National Monuments Nuwara Eliya Post Office and Royal Botanical Gardens, Peradeniya Pinnewala Elephant Orphanage ( Break Fast at Villa Pinnewala) Addressing the elephant in the room, the security in SL post the 21st April attacks is pretty heavy and upto the mark. Just be prepared for random checks of the car by the Sri Lankan Army. However, it does not have much impact on your experience. No matter where you go, you are greeted by the happily smiling Sri Lankan, as afterall they do hold the World Record of most plesant and smiling people in the world record i.e ~ 86% of the poulation (Another gem shared by our tour guide - Hafis) We had a great time in Lanka and take this opportunity to THANK Travel Triangle, Swati, Direct Link, Anto and Hafis for making this a beautiful trip that we will cherish forever.

      Hello we have visited Srilanka as on 6 th June 17, 2019 would like to mention that Narang (Travel Triangle Holiday Expert) was extremely helpful. We were five couple to visit Sri Lanka . Secondly, Madhusudan(Tropical Ceylon Experts) who was working with Tropical Ceylon was left job .when we reach at Colombo Air port owner Mr. Sujeet was to receive us, made sure our requirements are met. Thirdly, our chauffeur guide Mr.Dilip was not knowing Hindi, so we have faced lot of problem of under sting language, he was cooperative but left us on 4th day and back to his home, Tempo Driver does not know English so last 2 days was not received any information of sight sneering that day there was need of Mr. Narang but he was also not available. Any how we have enjoyed Trip. As per our quotation Tropical Ceylon has to give us Hindi specking Guide, but given English specking Guide, most of our friend doesn’t understand English, this was main problems. Food and hotels was very good

      Visited Sri Lanka with Travco adventures through Travel Triangle. Was a bit apprehensive about the sensitive situation in Colombo. But Mr. Shanil from Travco rest assured me of our safety. He did good arrangements for us. The vehicle and the driver were very good. The hotels provided were good except for The Grand Concord, Colombo. The executive from Travel triangle was calling multiple times till the booking was done. But sorry to say, once they received their payment, nobody bothered to answer our calls or queries. Had read about previous reviews of travel triangle on the net and I share the same views. Once they get their payment.. They don't wish to know you. Wonderful Sri Lanka. Nuwara Elliya was breathtakingly beautiful. The beach at Bentota was fabulous. The staff of all the hotels were very cordial and welcoming.

While it's clearly written and double clarified about no cancellation before 28 days of tour, it's cost me 160$ for 2 people out of 44 people.

      Had a wonderful time in Srilanka. Thanks to Chathura for planning our itinerary . Apart from Oak ray tea Bush hotel, rest was superb. Special mention to our Chauffeur Mr Nandana, he took care of us very well. Highly recommended these guys . My trip started with tragic bomb blasts in colombo for which our prayers are with people of Srilanka. At this tough time it was ensured from the tropical ceylon team and especially our chauffeur Mr Nandana that we are safe , coordinating with authorities and ensuring we donot enter or go towards affected areas. People of Srilanka are very friendly and always ensure that they help to their best of abilities.

Absolutely amazing experience with them both. My parents reached just the day before the unfortunate event of bombing in and around Colombo. But Ganidu from the Akin Lanka was amazing in assisting them throughout and the driver Saliya was exceptionally amazing and treated my parents with utmost respect and looked after them so well. Thank you so much guys. This is what true Sri Lanka is, the best hospitality ever. God bless. Best wishes from all of us.
