Traveling

  • Train timetables in Sri Lanka are at railway.gov.lk. The seat reservation in public trains is not easy and we don't know the details, please check the official website or travelling forums. Private companies (Rajadhani and Exporail) attach private wagons to public trains. Seats in these wagons can be booked but at a much higher price that in the public wagons.
  • Seaplanes are now available to travel through Sri Lanka with many internal airports. Sri Lankan Airlines and Cinnamon Air are codesharing those routes. Other companies also have internal flights: Fits Air, Fly Sri Sanka, Helitours.
  • The network of buses is very important and covers all the island, any villages. No online timetable available. You have to go to ask to the bus station or to your guesthouse. Ticket has to be taken and paid in the bus.
  • Hop On Lanka offers private bus travels.
  • Taxis (tuk tuks and van/car) are available everywhere. Ask your guesthouse.
