The local experience

The streets of Pettah offer a fascinating glimpse into the shopping culture of Colombo’s locals. Captivating, extraordinary and sometimes overwhelming, there are innumerable choices and bargains to be had. Hundreds of small shops, bazaar-style pedestrian stalls, sidewalk vendors, barrow boys and branded outlets vie for attention and transactions.
