What to buy: You can buy lots of many different clothes like the usuall Thai dye stuff, and there is a good selection of shorts, shirts, skirts and sarongs. (Hikkaduwa). There is also a wide selection of ornaments and masks to be had. The best buy must be the silver it's cheap and there are plenty of shops to choose from so don't buy any-thing in the first shop you see as there is plenty of haggling over price to be done. There are also a good number of gems to be found, If you decide to buy a ring with a stone on it make sure it is of good quality as I have heard stories of the stones becoming loose and falling off. One of the best places to buy goods is in Colombo.
