  • Local tour guides be careful. don't encourage your guests to visit here. This people will badly let you down.you know what I mean. Excellent in postponing. Broken promises all time.
  • Govt owned and authentic but very costly and exorbitantly priced. Indian visitors would find everything costly. Unless you are a Tea lover and can differentiate different flavour of Tea, you can give a skip. Handicrafts also didn't impress me either....You may try other places as well.
  • Has all the souvenirs made in Sri Lanka. You get many brass items and also nice Buddha statues
  • Great place to buy souvenirs, handicrafts and many other local ornaments and handlooms. Little bit pricy but it's totally worth for the quality and authenticity.
  • Best vast collection of sri lankan handicrafts at reasonable price
