Hello, I will be traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Dammam, and I have a transit in Colombo, Sri Lanka. I land in Colombo at 7.15AM and depart at 6.50pm. So I am guessing that gives me around 7-8 hours I can go around in Colombo. Please recommend where I should go and why. I would really appreciate it! Thank you!

Any ideas as to how to book or contact the De Fonseka Place Guest House in Colombo? No links on any of the travel sites. any comments on the place. Cheers
Hi all, I want to take the observer train from Colombo to Kandy. A travel operator is charging me £45 GBP for two tickets - this includes a fee to deliver it to the hotel as there is apparently no scope to collect it on a Sunday - need to travel on Sunday 8th. Does this sound reasonable? Can I just collect them from the railway station on the day or the day before? Thanks x
At first I was looking for a package deal but the quotes I got are expensive I got it a lot lesser 2 years back. Now I'm considering booking all the hotels online and find me a guide/driver with an a/c car for a couple friend on a 14-day honeymoon in Sri Lanka. I saw some guides online but I still find them a little costly, one charges US$50/person/day? I'm not particular about the on-going rates though so maybe that's fair? So if someone could suggest their trusted licensed guide/driver (with an aircond. car) who charges reasonably, I would appreciate that - with email address please. English speaking of course and if he speaks a little arabic, that would be a plus. Thanks in advance.
Hi all, I have a flight on 15th April back to London from Colombo airport and it's at 9am so I will need to be at the airport to check in around 7am.

About 30 of us are planning to spend 3days in Colombo in the month of May. Can anyone suggest what are the important places we must see in these 3 days.
Hello I will be driving in Sri Lanka this March/April and understand that i require a Recognition Permit to accompany my international driving licence (...don't you just love pointless bureaucracy). I have a small problem as I will be unable to get to Colombo at all. I believe the only office which dispenses these permits is the AA office in Colombo. Therefore does anyone know of an agent who can obtain the permit for me (I understand a 3rd party is allowed to do this)? Or will anyone be near the AA office (on Sir Mohamed Macan Markar Mawatha road) who is kind enough to do me a small favour?! Please no replies about self-driving as there's enough of these in the forums. Many thanks in advance for any advice.

Hi, Am looking to travel to Colombo & Beruwela from Aug 31 to Sept 4, how is the weather usually during that time of the year? Does it rain so bad that it makes no sense to make a plan for then? Really look forward to some responses soon, as I have to close out bookings. Thanks
