  • The location is made up of three different things: good market shop (an organic food shop, every Saturday is also a weekly market on the opposite side of the road, also worth a visit), Kumbuk-kitchen (small restaurant) and Lakpahana handcrafts () Souvenir shop). Good market: one of the few shops in Colombo with a large selection of organic foods, priced but more expensive than conventional supermarkets. Here you can get fresh fruit and vegetables, spices, snacks, juices, etc. The restaurant offers snacks, shakes and drinks. Fresh, creative and very trendy (sri Lankan cuisine with Western influences). The prices are okay. 300 rupees for homemade ice tea and about 700 rupees for a great snack such as wraps and Salad bowls. Super tasted me. Is expensive compared to domestic prices to spend €6 but for a lunch with drink for me more than affordable. The gift shop has a huge selection of sri Lankan arts and crafts and is priced, not cheap but cheaper than many other tourist shops. Advantage: Very unobtrusive staff who immediately turn a not all want to ;-)

Where to stay in Colombo

Despite its relatively low cost of living, Colombo accommodations tend to be fairly pricey. Close to the sea and the lake, as well as near the city's parks and the plazas, hotels come in the form of old colonial buildings and ultra-modern high rises, with a decent selection of each to choose from. Budget-conscious travelers should pay attention to the short rental options in the town's more residential areas, or look for the smattering of simple, but serviceable options close to the main train stations, and on the side streets set back from the waterfront.
