Shopping and Nightlife
The best part about shopping in Sri Lanka is that the Indian Rupee is stronger than the Lankan Rupee. Thus, any purchase in Sri Lanka costs half its value in Indian Rupees. If you are looking for cheap yet value–formoney shopping, then ‘House of Fashion’ is the place to visit in Colombo. For the more affluent traveller, Odel Unlimited is the mall to raid. And if you want to take home some authentic Sri Lankan souvenirs and handicrafts, then Laksala should not be given a miss.
The nightlife of Sri Lanka is restricted to big cities like Colombo, with numerous places to visit and the city is relatively safe at night.
