Understand[edit]

Get in[edit]

Bus: Buses running around the coast pass along the Colombo to matara road every 20minutes or more frequently 24 hours per day. Train: under construction at the time of writing but when running will be a stop on the Colombo to Matara line. See Colombo fort train station departure times.

Get around[edit]

Tuk tuk: more expensive than buses but take you door to door. approx 700rupee from Midigama to Galle (although the Tuk Tuk owners will start at R1500 - R2000 before being bargained down to 700), 150-200rupee to Welligama. Bus: cheap and easy way to get around the main features but is restricted to the main roads. Pass along road every 10-20minutes and is a good alternative for the budget traveler as it is only R41 to Galle.
