Busy streets in Pettah

Pettah market or Manning Market is an open market in Pettah, Colombo. The Market is most famous for wholesale distribution out of Colombo.

These chaotic streets are always crowded, noisy and packed with tuk tuks, wooden carts and street vendors. In these miniscule shops you will find everything you will ever need for ridiculous prices. And if you’re planning on going shopping here, do some research, as different streets specialise in different items.

Best way to witness the market is by foot, since even if you manage to take your car in through the madness, parking will be impossible.
