    Odels: Good quality clothing

    by jo104 Written May 12, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Odels sells a lot of overuns which are made for european stores and display it under their own label. They also have a good range of sri lanka clothing called luv sl which makes it ideal place for shopping for clothing gifts. They also sell sarongs and spa ceylon products.

    Odels have branches mostly in colombo but they also have 2 shops in kandy, galle and at the airport. The shop in colombo 7 has a foot rub, nail bar and various restuarants and coffee bars attached to it. The shops are nicely airconditioned and a nice place to escape the heat or wait for a friend.

    I brought a cute hooded sweatshirt for my nephew and have previously purchased t-shirts for myself which after 2 years still look good.

    cute sweatshirt Be careful no refunds policy

    Kiosks: Don't leave airport without SIM card

    by anilpradhanshillong Updated Jan 28, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Moment you clear Immigration & Customs, walk towards the exit. Just before the exit gate, look to your left. You will see kiosks of Dialog, Mobitel and Etisalat, next to one another. I chose Mobitel (LKR 200/- deposit + LKR 800/-talk time). LKR 4/- per minute to India. When your limit gets low, you can 'roload' your SIM card. Don't buy a fresh one, just 'reload' it with the requisite amount of LKR.

    After you buy your SIM card, go to the Tourist counter (within the airport itself) and pick up your FREE copy of Sri Lanka map. Very useful.

    You may also think of changing your currency while still inside the airport at the Bank of Ceylon counter.

    What to pay: As per your requirement

    ODEL's: "A Destination in Itself"

    by ViajesdelMundo Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fun to have watched this 'seconds' T-shirt warehouse in Colombo 05, grow to its current status as THE place to shop, both for foreign tourists as well as the returning diaspora. Whether you are shopping for that unique souvenir, clothing, perfumes, shoes, sporting or home accessories, books, music, stationery, or an extra piece of luggage to get you back home; it is HERE!

    Relax with lunch at their gourmet cafeteria, or just a drink at the wine bar. Just outside the front door is an Italian ice cream parlor!

    You can engage a tuk-tuk to bring you, and then he will wait for you if you please; or there will always be another one hanging around the spacious parking lot.

    There are also smaller ODEL clothing stores in other locations, such as MAJESTIC CITY.

    What to buy: They have many unique items, such as their own design T-shirts, with elephants and other wild life, etc.

    What to pay: Reasonable prices for the quality; unlike most other shops.

    What to buy: Accessories and jewelry, shoes, bags, cosmetics, home ware, sunglasses, tea, books, music, a hair salon, café, florist, watches, swimwear, winter clothing, sports wear, play section for kids, candy and chocolate store, bath products, sushi bar, plants and an excellent selection of Sri Lanka T-shirts. An Italian ice cream parlour is also present.

    Definitely the place to go shopping while in Colombo.

    What to pay: As I noted earlier, you must pay whatever they ask for!
