How do we get from Colombo to Jaffna? I've looked it up and I understand that there are coaches/buses and trains. Some people have advised me to take a flight but I can't seem to find any current information on flights to Jaffna from Colombo. Please help!
I'm planning a trip to Sri Lanka for 2 weeks in July and would like to hire a vehicle for 6 passengers, with driver. Any first hand recommendations would be much appreciated. We plan to go from Colombo to Kandy, Sigiriya, Anuradhapura and Jaffna.
I'm a solo backpacker traveller and I'm currently planning my trip to Sri Lanka. It will most probably take place January next year, so the weather should be fine.
I'm more or less aware about the public transport situation in Sri Lanka, however some aspects of it are still unclear to me.
I'm arriving to Colombo, from where I'll go to Galle and Mirissa. After Mirissa, I want to visit Sinharaja rainforest, then go to Adam's Peak, then do the Kirigalpoththa Trek, and then visit…
I read in LP that Poson Poya full moon day is a great celebration in Sri Lanka but especially in Anuradhapura. This year it will be celebrated 8th june. My question: all the celebration acts are at night 7th to 8th june or 8th to 9th? It is important to know in order to book a hotel in one or other day. Thanks in advance
Will be in Sri Lanka in a few weeks, booked a week in Arugam Bay about 5 days after we land in Colombo.
Would like to travel via Ella to Arugam Bay over those 5 days, by train as much as possible. Any suggestions for other stops en route? And ideas of how to travel between Ella and A-Bay, on a budget, and with surfboards in tow?
Will have three weeks in the country, so plan to travel along the south coast back to Colombo after.
We land at 03:30 and would like to head straight to Trinco. Would we be best to organise a driver in advance or will it be safe enough to get a taxi from the airport taxi desk? Thanks
Myself and my partner are travelling from Ella to Kandy tomorrow (23rd April) probably looking to leave in the morning at some point.
We were wondering if anybody is going in the same direction and would like to split a taxi?
Hi, would love some help with planning this trip
I'll be flying to Sri Lanka with my wife for my honeymoon this October. We'll spend 9 days there before flying to the Maldives for 5 days. We'd also like a private driver but we know that some of the train journeys are epic!
We've looked a quite a lot of tours and they all generally offer visits to the same sites. My question is, is it worth it to organise ourselves rather than paying for a tour? I'm finding it hard to find and add up all…
As I will be travelling solo in SL in June, I am trying to find people to share taxis with but am a bit concerned this might be almost impossible through internet or FB. I have posted a note on srilankataxishare.com but am not too optimistic on the outcome.
Would anyone have any thought to share with me or any tip ?
Also would anyone know the mainstream taxi companies to deal with there. I was quoted a price from my hostel in Arugam but it seems at least +10% than the regular price.
