Colombo Port, traditionally one of the busiest in South Asia, is again buzzing with activity after having been paralyzed this summer by rebel-inspired strikes. Officials are pressing ahead with ambitious expansion plans and cutting the fees they charge shippers to revitalize the port and support Sri Lanka's war-ravaged economy. But shipping analysts worry that the government's efforts may not be enough to reassure merchants, who prefer to do business in calmer places.

Singapore boasts a population that includes Chinese, Malaysian, Indian, Indonesian and British peoples, influencing an extraordinary abundance of handicrafts brought from nearby Asian nations. The broadest selection of Southeast Asian handicrafts is available at the Singapore Handicraft Center (163 Tanglin Road). The center offers more than 30 shops and stalls that specialize in goods from Malaysia, China, India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and other nations. Items range from colorful batik fabrics to elaborately carved rosewood furniture, from lacquered chopsticks to silk flowers and from loose semiprecious gems to cutout paper shadow puppets.
