Sightseeing and chilling by the beach are great, but what if you need to satisfy the shopaholic in you? Here are some of the best places to go shopping when you’re in Colombo.
Colombo City Centre (CCC)
Situated facing Beira Lake, the CCC is an amazing shopping destination with sweeping views of the metropolis and a cinema complex as well. Apart from international and local fashion brands you also get spa items and electronics including Apple products. The best thing; you can stay close by as the complex is right at the heart of the city and can be easily reached from luxurious hotels like Mandarina Colombo.
The Dutch Hospital Precinct
The best place to visit for a fun night out with your friends or loved ones! You can enjoy a nice meal in the courtyard and enjoy some shopping too; check out ‘Luv SL’ by Odel to get some cute and unique souvenirs. This area is also close to the beach and surrounded by the best hotels in Colombo! What’s not to love?
One Galle Face
This is Sri Lanka’s first international development; it has many global brands including Armani Exchange, Charles & Keith, Mango, Aldo, Swarovski, Rolex, Skechers and Adidas. There’s also amazing dining options and a fantastic movie theatre with multiple cinemas too. One Galle Face is the one-stop destination for shopaholics!
Feel like rock climbing but also want to go shopping? Marino Mall is the best place for you. There’s an amazing arena filled with games and fun activities for all ages. Additionally, from fashion and electronics to perfumes, jewellery and more it has it all. Step in and fulfil all your shopping-related cravings (and the rock-climbing related ones).
