  • Almost every stores were empty. There were no other people, no great atmosphere. It reminds of an extinct area. You can take a very short walk close to the water, but the distance is not long either. ...  more »
  • It would have been a nice thing it definitely features, pity that half was empty (because of the overpriced rents). What little is unfortunately there of stalls and people who do not promise well

  • This is the first place who travels to Colombo by bus from far away first see after landing at last stop. This place adds some beauty and somewhat attraction for tourists also. There are few shops with colorful clothes and abstract designs. These are actually uncommon and comfort ware. The prices are also very cheap. There are also few restaurants with food items and with somewhat good quality than others around main street. Rather than walking around populated, tiny, too hot streets next to this this is somewhat good to pass some time. After a long bus ride and before departing to the next location or if there is more time left for the bus or to the train can pass some time here by grabbing a quick snack, cool drink or a smoke and safety wise also better than other streets.
  • A nice place to roam, chat and dine. But no. of shops slowly went down due to less business. This is a place built properly but not to be maintained well. A good business plan can bring this to a marvelous tourist attraction.
