Each time I visit Galle, I stop by Orchid House. Not really for souvenirs, as I have plenty of handicraft from Srilanka already, however their selection is original and of very good quality. What I do come for is their jewellery section. Here you can find reasonably priced pieces with beautiful designs. From a small silver and moonstone item to... More

Gave us tour of the shop and to our amazement he could understand and speak urdu very well :D I would definitely recommend others to visit the place.... More

Spent the morning of our last day in Galle (and Sri Lanka) here. Went by the Trip Advisor rating and was not disappointed. It is a cozy little place and stacks a variety of things for tourists. Picked up many varieties of teas and hand-made soaps as gifts (turned out the hand-made soaps were cheaper at Bare Foot!) and a... More

We came across this shop and found there was many different kinds of products in the shop. Some sort of one-stop shopping for souvenir. Eventually, we bought three pack of tea set; and some other stuffs. Later on, we found the same tea-set products in Airport. The price was around 20% less in the airport. Still felt a little bad.

Lovely little shop with a whole array of interesting items ranging from clothes to jewellery to tea and various knick knacks. The staff are extremely hospitable and were so patient with my 8 year old son who explored the entire place with wild curiosity! It was our second visit this time and the experience was as mesmerizing as the first.... More

We went in there by chance. Bought some postcards, magnets, spa oils etc at a fair price. Perfect to buy some gifts for family and friends.
