First things first. Colombo is not your average shopping destination. It simply does not even come close to shopping destinations like Singapore or Dubai or any such global city with designer stores and glitzy facades. However, once you look beyond this point you will discover that it has to offer a wholly different shopping experience. One that is a lot more fun, intriguing and even quirky.

 

Allow us to take you to Sri Lankan designer stores that stock unique fashion selections, drop into delightful lifestyle stores, select from a range of exotic and sustainable food items and hob nob with the locals at a market famous for plants, fruits and local delicacies. A tour where we plan ahead so you don’t waste time on the roads or visiting shops that you will not see any value in.

 

And because we share a list of options with you in advance, you get to select where to shop. Our tour comes with an experienced Sri Lankan shopper, a car or van depending on the group size, driver, unlimited bottled water, complementary fruit juice, and breaks for lunch and snacks. Think of it as going on a shopping tour with your new local best friends.
