    Good place to shop. Very good variety. Odel is Sri Lanka's version of Shopper's Stop (India) and it is very good too! Nice patio area with some great restaurants. The Sugar Bistro and Wine Bar is highly recommended.

    The best ODEL outlet in my opinion. Has a food court if you want to grab some fast food. Has sufficient parking space. They always decorate according to the season/ occasion which is pretty nice. The clothes sold here are pretty high-end and can cost a fair bit, but the quality is always great.

    Beautiful small mall with some good brands. Once you are done shopping you can enjoy a great meal in the atrium. As a parent of toddler I always look for a place with baby changing room n this mall has a very hygienic, spacious and beautiful changing room.

    Great place to shop or spend some time listening to some live music in the evenings at the Promenade. Some good outdoor food stalls.

    This is an up market shop that had been around for a while which started as a very small business. It's good for clothes and souvaniers for tourists to take back home. It has good parking, good toilets and many eating options. ODEL of course have changed since the change of ownership and it's now a more commercial venture compared to the one of it's kind lifestyle store it used to be.

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.
