Breakfast at the hotel and proceed to Colombo (Approx. 03 ½ hours).
On arrival do a city tour of Colombo including shopping tour.
Colombo like many capital cities in developing countries is fast changing its face. Almost overnight, skyscrapers arise from where old buildings once stood. Yet in some parts, the old-world charm is retained. For example, there is a 100-year-old clock tower and several British built colonial buildings. Other places of interest are the Pettah bazaar - where one can shop for bargain, a Hindu and a Buddhist temple, residential areas - where you find stately homes of the affluent and the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH)- an outright gift to Sri Lanka from the People's Republic of China.
Colombo offers an exciting and diverse shopping experience that caters to a wide range of tastes and preferences. From traditional markets to modern malls, Colombo has it all, making it a shopper's paradise in South Asia. There are several world-class shopping malls, such as Crescat Boulevard, Liberty Plaza, Odel and One Galle Face Mall. These modern complexes house a plethora of international and local brands, luxury boutiques, electronics stores, and restaurants. It's the perfect place to find the latest fashion trends, gadgets, and culinary delights.
For a taste of authentic Sri Lankan shopping, head to the bustling street markets. Pettah Market is a highlight, where you can find everything from spices, textiles, and jewelry to electronics and street food. It's a vibrant, chaotic, and sensory-rich experience that immerses you in local culture.
For those looking to take home a piece of Sri Lanka's rich culture, there are numerous shops and stalls selling handicrafts, traditional fabrics, and souvenirs. Laksala and Barefoot are two popular spots where you can find beautifully crafted items like handwoven textiles, woodwork, and local artwork. On completion check-in to the hotel.
