Shopping in Sri Lanka is all about the experience. In Sri Lanka, shopping malls are few and far between and are centred around the capital city. However, the few shopping malls in the country are excellent and offer a wide range of goods catering to every need.
Majestic City and Liberty Plaza have many outlets offering casual wear, business attire, kids clothes and toys, electrical goods, beauty products and cosmetics, jewellery, furniture, handicrafts and much more at reasonable prices. There are also many food outlets in both malls so that you can easily spend the day at the mall without a problem. Crescat Boulevard is one of the best up-market shopping malls in Sri Lanka and most outlets are high-end and branded.
The first and only departmental store in Sri Lanka, Odel, has taken shopping in Sri Lanka to a new dimension. Offering its customers the best choice in fashion, in an ambience that is ideal – chic and casual, a day shopping at Odel is a must. There is a wide range of goods on offer including clothes, jewellery, sports goods, lingerie, handicrafts, linen and household items, books etc. including a separate section ‘embark’ for pet goods. All this and much more for the best prices possible! There are a wide variety of dining options too ranging from a sushi bar to burgers or pizzas. Perhaps a work-out at O-tone or a massage at Foot Rub after a long day of shopping may be welcome.
Barefoot is a store frequented by many tourists as it features handloom goods which are unique, distinctive, classy and chic. The brand needs no tag! Paradise Road is the place where you can find some of the most exquisite pieces of household furniture and crockery and cutlery, vases and lamps etc. with a unique touch of Sri Lanka.
No Limit is Sri Lanka’s biggest fashion chain and has about 16 outlets spread through many districts island-wide. They have a wide range of items including clothes, shoes, accessories and sarees. House of Fashion too offers a wide range of items at rock-bottom prices. A place where you can really get value for money. Sri Lanka also has many international brands including Mango, Levi’s, Giordano and Kelly Felder among others.
The state-owned Laksala is the perfect place if you want some exquisite silver or brassware, buffalo horn, wooden goods and other souvenirs. There are many items made with coconut shells, cane and bamboo too. Dilmah and Mlesna are where you can get the best of Ceylon Tea.
The experience of shopping in Sri Lanka is varied and exceptional in every city. There are plenty of little stores wherever you go, with a selection of quality goods for everyone. The feature characteristic is that it is specialized and unique and some of the ‘outlets’ may be a little structure made with bamboo and a thatched roof, but offers you an experience in shopping like no other.Submit Inquiry
