If you have a taste for the artsy, you must stop at Barefoot- a boutique gift shop founded in 1964 and curated by the talented Barbara Sansoni who is famous for her eclectic designs. Choose from a colourful variety of hand-woven sarongs and mats, cute hand bags, cloth toys, draped garments, ethnic jewelry and stunning home décor pieces. Bring home the vagabond Barefoot mouse toy for your kid while you pick up and some interesting collection of local tea from Sri Lanka for family and friends back home.
If you’re there over a weekend, stop by for dinner of black pork curry and red wine or beer to live jazz music, played just on Fridays evenings and Sunday afternoons.
