    • Finding Bus from Colombo Int'l Airport (CMB) to Kandy or Cultural Triangle after Midnight

      Sri Lanka Mar 4, 2015 at 4:11 AM

      I will be arriving CMB at 23.30h next Monday (9 March) and would like to go straight to Kandy or the Cultural Triangle area.

      There is a free shuttle from the airport to the nearby Averiwatte Bus Station. Will there be buses going to Kandy this late at night (say 00.30h)?

      I will be carrying only hand luggage and will have entry Visa and rupee ready so as not to waste time in leaving the airport.

      A second best option will be to make my way to Colombo and find a bus from there. I understand buses from Colombo to Kandy go as late as 02.00h.

      Thank you in advance!!

      Sri Lanka Mar 4, 2015 at 1:31 AM

      We shall be arriving in Colombo at 2:20am & would like to head straight for Arugam Bay near Potuvil ... What is the best cheapest way to reach Arugam Bay the same day & what are the connections from the airport to the respective bus stand/train station, If that's difficult then an alternative route, a single day halt on way is possible. Also which other quite/peaceful, swim-able, reasonably priced beach front stay would you recommend in Sri Lanka. (We havent researched much hence your suggestions are welcome)

    • Unawatuna beach

      Unawatuna Mar 17, 2015 at 7:09 AM

      Hello all,I booked a 5 night stay (no weekend date) at a guesthouse with great reviews at the end of our 14-day trip. What I am worried about is the local beach, I have been reading recently that it gets really overcrowded (even dirty). Is it really that bad or I can find a quiet part nearby as well to feel just the sand and palms? My plan was to end up our Sri Lanka trip in a paradise feel beach environment :-) where we can swim/snorkel safely. Thank you for your advice!

      Direct bus from Negombo to Kandy --- which bus station?

      Negombo Mar 7, 2015 at 5:35 AM

      I'm looking at Google Maps and there's Negombo Bus Station, Katunayake Bus Station, and Seeduwa Bus Station. From which one do we catch the direct bus to Kandy? Please advise. Thanks in advance.

      Are Bermuda shorts okay for foreign men to wear in Negombo?

      Sri Lanka Mar 3, 2015 at 4:03 PM

      The temperatures seem to call for shorts, but I wonder if it is customary for foreign men to wear Bermuda shorts everywhere? I don't want to offend anyone, so thought I would ask in this great forum!

      Thank you.

      Sizes of plastic bottles of drinking water sold in Sri Lanka?

      Sri Lanka Mar 3, 2015 at 3:59 PM

      Is drinking water in Sri Lanka (Negombo) sold in the supermarkets, in TWO-liter plastic bottles? Or, only in 1.5 liter plastic bottles?

      The reason I ask is that I have diabetes and so will be bringing fruit-flavored, sugar-free drink powder to mix in 2 litres of water. Will be there two weeks.

      Thanks for any info.

      Walking in Horton Plains

      by charleygirl76 Online Now Mar 28, 2005 at 12:39 PM

      We have hired a jeep to take us into Horton Plains and to see The World's End.
      How far does the jeep usually take you into the Plains, and how far is the trek to The Worlds End?
      We'd also like to know what sort of foot wear would be appropriate for this terrain. Obviously stilletoes and flip flops are out of the question, but would trainers suffice, or are a good pair of walking boots/light trekking shoes needed?
      Any info about this trip would be good. We are staying at the Tea Factory in Niriwa Eliya (apologies for spelling)and think this trip may take nearly a whole day.
