Bandaranaike International Airport to Colombo Fort Railway

Hello, we arrive March 25th at 4.40 a.m. at Bandaranaike International Airport.

I thought about taking the bus to Colombo Fort Railway Station. Then the train to Kandy. (7.00-9:30 : https://onlinebooking.exporail.lk/exporail/online.htm)

Is that enough time to reach the railway station?

How do we find a bus from the airport to the railway station?

There is an option to book the exporail. Would you recommend to book it in advance?

Thank you.

Approx. 1-2 hours - depending on where you are going.

There seems to be a lot of useful information here, so I am just asking if all the information is still up to date.

My boyfriend is arriving the 12th of June, 2014 around 3:30 AM at Colombo Bandaranaike. Can he take bus 187 around 4:30 AM?

And are there also night buses going to Bandaranaike in case I want to pick him up?

Thank you in advance for your reply!

Both 187 and EX03 are running approx. once per hour during the night.
