How to Reach Spots for Shopping in Colombo

How to reach shopping in Colombo is really a loaded question. There is no one correct answer to it. The entire route depends completely on personal preferences of the shopper. The best thing about Colombo is that each location has a variety of shopping destinations and each shopping destination has its own specialties. For a complete experience, to start with, one might go to Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct. The closest airport is Bandaranaike International Airport. From there, Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct is a one-hour drive away via E03 Highway. Colombo Harbor is closer still – just a thirteen-minute drive away along Colombo Port Main Road and closer still from Fort Railway Station – just twelve minutes on foot. From here, how to reach shopping is no longer quite as vexing.

Once Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct is reached, how to reach shopping is very easy to answer. From here, continuing south leads to one stellar shopping and window shopping destination after the other. Have unlimited fun shopping at Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct itself and kick things off with a sumptuous meal at Ministry of Crab. Moving southward, the closest spots are Jewel Qudsi, LUV SL Mall, and then Liberty Plaza. From Liberty Plaza, the travelers have a choice between further south and moving east. East leads to Lakpahana Handcraft, Aashkii, House of Fashions, Cotton Collection, and Paradise Road – all excellent shopping stops for clothing. So, from Liberty Plaza onwards, the question of how to reach shopping is rendered moot.

Continuing southwards from Liberty Plaza leads to more brilliant shopping destinations. So, Liberty Plaza is a central place of shopping in Colombo. This removes most hassles with how to reach shopping in Colombo. Going south leads to Noritake Lanka Porcelain Showroom, Colombo Jewelry Stores, Barefoot, Majestic City, Romafour, and Midnightdivas. These are all specialized stores. The best way to roam the city at close quarters for shopping is to take buses or hire a Tuk-Tuk for the day. Taking a cab around Colombo for shopping might be a bit too expensive. Trains, on the other hand, are perfectly cheap but are usually very crowded. With the proper know-how, how to reach shopping destinations in Colombo is hardly a bother. Buses ply in and out of the city very frequently and can be a good method of transport as well.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      I have booked for 6 nights and 7 days package with Direct Link. Travel agent (Anto) and the cab driver (Atheek) was excellent combination. They clearly understand the customer needs and executes well. Atheek went to the next level with greatest satisfaction in touring the cities. I strongly recommend Atheek for touring Srilanka.

      The travel agent didn't tell the hotel about our anniversary. The package is overpriced. Although the cab driver was decent person but he didn't have knowledge about nearby hotels and restaurants. It was an average trip. Got home safely.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      We are satisfied in hotels except 2. One of them has no proper WiFi access where as another one we asked for a closer one to Mirissa but provided far way. And as a foreigner we weren't aware of holidays in Srilanka . We were regularly in touch with them when demanding places and other things , they could have informed about the holidays in there . First day in Colombo was a complete waste because of this . No shops or anything was not open. 1. Nuwera to Ella train journey 2. Ella 3. Mirissa beaches..

      Kudos to Mrs. Charitha & her team from Vista Vacations and the Travel Triangle team for making the Sri Lanka tour one of the most memorable trips in my life!! The entire trip including pickups, accomodations, meals, and sightseeing was perfectly organized. The guide provided during the entire tour was very helpful. Hotels were beautiful and comfortable and the food provided was really nice. Overall, a very decent touring experience.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      Good Trip planned with Overa tours (via travel triangle) . All the Hotels are good except Araliya Green Hills – NuwaraEliya due to hotel staff behavior and room comfort. Our vehicle was excellent but Driver is not very polite with kids. He needs to be little patient with kids. Driver does not have much idea about the Sightseeing places to visit in Colombo.

      Elegance tours made our trip amazing by making arrangements in good hotels and luxury cab. Driver was well informed and fluent English speaking guy. Mr Bhudhika from elegance took personal interest and taken care of us. We were very happy and had wonderful trip. Starting from airport to ending at airport, we had great time. I liked Nuwareliya and Bantota the most. Hotel at river in Bantota added to more amazing experience. Because of New Year period, we did not find much crowd except at Nuwareliya. We saw water landing plan in lake of Nuwareliya. Boat safari was another beautiful experience. Dutch fort near Bantota was beautiful. Day trip of Colombo was also very good. Overall whole trip was amazing.

      Sri Lanka is a a very serene, clean and a beautiful country. My entire family had a wonderful and a memorable stay. The hotels booked were good and comfortable.We had no problem during the entire trip.Our cab driver was an extremely courteous man with a smile always on his face.My dad has muscular problem in his legs, the driver was very helpful , helping him in and out of the car and took good care of him when my father was unable to accompany us at some of the places.It was under his pursuance that we got a chance for river rafting though it was not in our itinerary but on our way to next spot.River rafting indeed became one of the most amazing experiences of the entire trip.The trip was very well organized.Since we were vegetarian we had little problem for food for lunch but the cab driver made sure we had our lunch at good places and will look around for restaurants for it and show us the menu.
