    • Pure Vegetarian Food in Jaffna

      Sri Lanka Jan 1, 2017 at 4:04 PM

      Which restaurants in Jaffna serve South Indian style food like Saravanas in Chennai ( kind of 'Thali' as North Indians call it)? I loved the food in Chennai, but am still looking for a similar place in Jaffna. Tried already Vishnu in KKS Road, Malayan Cafe in the centre and Adchathai in Stanley Road. Not happy!

    • AC Bus from Colombo Airport/City to Polonnaruwa

      by Mali_208 Online Now Jul 31, 2011 at 11:15 AM

      Hi everybody,
      My plane will arrive at 8 am at Colombo Airport and I wanted go directly by bus to Polonnaruwa, which would be convenient as first step as I would like to start my visit with the Cultural Triangle.
      However, I've read on this forum that it was not advisable as it is a very long trip (7 hours?) with many people standing in the bus.
      1) Would you advise to go directly to Polonnaruwa by bus?
      2) Are there any AC buses going directly from Katunayake bus station to Polonnaruwa and how long would it take ? or do I have to go to Colombo City first?
      3) From Colombo City, are there often AC buses to Polonnaruwa with chances to have a seat?
      4) How long takes the bus n°187 from Katunayake bus station to Colombo City at about 9 am?
      Thanks in advance for your answers.

    • Accommodation in Polonnaruwa

      by caroline975 Online Now Oct 23, 2005 at 6:01 AM

      I wish to find some nice accommodation in Polonnaruwa. I have read reviews of the bigger hotels (e.g. Royal Lotus, Rest house, Sudu Araliya) but they are not very good - the hotels sound tired and the service is bad. I would therefore like to find a nice guesthouse with nice rooms and hot water. Could anyone recommend one?

      Many thanks,

      Caroline
