Colombo airport to fort train station

I am arriving Colombo airport around midnight and would like to catch the first train to galle in the morning.

1. Is it ok/convenient to just stay at the airport until morning as I do not want to spend for a few hours in a hotel?

2. Will there be bus or taxi to take me to the fort train station this early in the morning ( around 5:30a to catch the 6:45a train) and how long it will take and how much?

I am arriving in Colombo airport 29th March 2014 at 7.40am. I need to go to Hikkaduwa by train. Is the train station near to the airport or will I have to get transport. Is there a shuttle service available from the airport to the train station. Is it safe for a female travelling alone to go by train. Have you a timetable of trains that go to Hikkaduwa and how much would it be and can I book online . Many thanks

Hi Katrin,

See top question on public transport. First 187 or EX03 bus to Fort and from there train. Not bookable online except 1 Rajadhani express carriage 6 days/week but time of that train does not suit you. Yes it's safe.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
