Arcade - Independence Square

Like the Race Course complex Colombo has a lot of old buildings that needs renovation. The government recently renovated the building complex near the Independence Square and its called Arcade. For a government project it is very impressive. The shops and restaurants target the high-end consumer but the place is for everyone to visit.

Floating Market - Colombo

When you imagine Pettah what comes to your mind is a crowded stinky and not so nice place. Well things have been changing a little bit in the past few years. If you go to the Front Street in Pettah what is used to be some years ago and what its now is much different.

The Floating Market is a man made shopping complex on the edge of the dirty part of the Beira Lake. The water is still green and it smells a bit here and there. But compared to what things used to be at least now things looks nice.
