A perennial favourite for shopaholics in Colombo, the Majestic City Mall has become a true shopping landmark in the city. Apart from retail therapy, it is also a popular spot to meet up, enjoy a meal or take in a movie.
Arguably the main landmark in Bambalapitiya (Colombo 4), Majestic City enjoys a central location easily accessible be it from budget hostels or luxury apartments in Colombo. Since it is located along the main “Galle Road” it is easy to get to via public buses too.
The mall features an eclectic array of shops with mobile phones and the latest in fashion to be found in abundance. Stores selling electronics, toys, watches and branded perfumes are also quite popular. Even with luxury malls coming up at mixed use development projects such as Cinnamon Life Colombo, Majestic City will always be a favourite for shopping!
This retail hub also has one of the city’s most well-known cinema complexes. On the fourth and fifth floors, you will find a total of four movie theatres featuring the latest releases from Hollywood, Bollywood and Kollywood. In case you are wondering; yes some of the cinemas have 3D projection too!
After all that shopping you are bound to get hungry; make your way to the basement level where you will find a bustling food court. Sri Lankan, Asian and international cuisines are on offer along with fast food, desserts and drinks to keep the hunger pangs at bay.
