Those visiting Sri Lanka’s commercial capital Colombo can enjoy a wide range of shopping options. Home to shopping centres, retail outlets and boutiques, Colombo is also where one will find more traditional shopping areas such as those in the Fort and Pettah areas which are known for their colourful street bazaars and shops. It is easy to get happily “lost” while wandering through the maze of alleys and streets here which interconnect with each other. The area is home to a wide range of shops and street stalls where you can find an eclectic array of items including spices, saris, electrical goods, clothes, vegetables and fruits and footwear. Part of the charm of shopping in Fort and Pettah is the bargaining and those with excellent powers of persuasion can get some great discounts! Travellers wanting to enjoy luxury holidays to the country should also look to experience the old world charm of Colombo which can be experienced in these areas. If you are planning tours to Sri Lanka make use of the services offered by Paradise Vacations which give you a chance to customize your holiday.
