Shopping in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has plenty of tempting wares to offer for shoppers, and what is best is that there is something to suit virtually every budget. If you have plenty to spend, there’s nothing quite as enticing as Sri Lanka’s precious gemstones – sapphires, rubies, beryls, zircon, quartz and more. Although Ratnapura, – very appropriately named "the town of gems" is the most important gem centre, gemstones are also easily available though usually at a higher price, at other places.

If gems don’t quite fit your pocket or your preferences, there are handicrafts aplenty. Among the most popular are painted wooden ceremonial masks ranging in size from key rings to full, life size ones; batik – an originally Indonesian method of dyeing cloth using wax to create patterns, leatherwork (especially bags), lacquer-work, jewellery, coir-ware and earthenware.
