  • Most suitable place to buy truly handcraft and great rural product by government store Salusala.. bit expensive but its a great service and good help to the people who need help from the able community... great shopping experience.......
  • Very good place for foreigners to shop. Can buy traditional items to take back home as gifts, most are hand made items. Bit pricy though, staff is very friendly and they do pack very well
  • Excellent place to buy local products with good quality. Best place to buy souvenirs, yet a bit expensive.
  • Very good place for foreigners and locals too. People can buy rare things which are indicating Srilankan culture and the beauty. Beside of it with batista you can enjoy the day freely.
  • Best place to buy souvenirs before you leave Si Lanka. Hand crafts, ornaments, gift items and so on. Items are bit expensive but good quality!
