Walked around for the nice scenery and architecture. Also stopped by for a nice iced mocha which goes down well on a very hot sunny day

This old Dutch hospital has been converted very nicely into a smallish shopping centre with nice restaurants and is a very relaxing place.

It is not big a shopping mall such as colombo city center. However, it has some most wanted shopping options along with few fantabulous restaurants serving food from all over the world. It is uniquely designed keeping its old colonial touch. There are enough spaces...More

First time I’ve been here. Loads of bars and restaurants some playing live music. Cool place to hang out in evening for a few hours or have a spot of dinner. Literally 2 min walk from Hilton hotel.

Getting desperate for presents to take home we went here. Lots of smellies, soap, hand cream, massage oil etc but expensive. Very colourful packaging making the shop look very inviting. Didn't buy anything.

We were expecting something a bit more developed, but still good for a wonder around the few shops and caught lunch in the restaurant next to Ministry of Crab.
