Tips and tricks

  • The local currency is the Sri Lankan rupee. Many hotels and shops accept cards, but outside the tourist area you will need some cash. You can exchange currency at bank branches, exchange offices, and small shops. The larger the denomination of a banknote is, the higher the rate will be.
  • For shopping, visit Duplication Road and Galle Road with countless shops, malls, and supermarkets. You will find absolutely everything here!
  • You should always bargain at local markets. Express surprise by shaking your head: show the seller that the cost is too high! Offer a price which is two times less than the initial one and then gradually increase it until the seller agrees.
  • If you are thirsty, try King coconut (i.e. Thambili) which can be found everywhere in Colombo. It will improve your digestion and speed up your metabolism as well.
  • Be sure to try curry rice, hoppers (rice flour pancakes), and kottu roti (chopped flatbread fried with eggs and vegetables). You can have a tasty and inexpensive meal at Curry Leaf or Table One restaurants.
