Sri Lanka train

Transportation in Sri Lanka is a chapter in itself. Air service is available or you could rent a car (if you dare), but if you want to see and experience Sri Lanka, you should use the Railway or go by the old roads. You can go almost everywhere either by bus or train. It is cheap, crowded and stuffy - and demands patience and good nerves. However it can be a great experience, and you no doubt meet new friends within short. Tuk-tuks (bajajs or 3-wheelers) are convenient for short trips. There are a lot of them - and you cannot avoid being offered a "taxi" in the street. Do remember to agree on a price, before you get in. 

The average speed on country roads is more or less 30-40 km (18-24 miles) per hour all over Sri Lanka, due to traffic and road conditions.
The easiest way to get around is to hire a vehicle with a driver. Then you can go, where ever you want, when you want it.

Travelinlanka offers you this service at a low price. For example 1 whole day for the amount of US $ 75 in an insured, air conditioned, new model car or van with an experienced English speaking chauffeur/guide.

Please contact Travelinlanka to hear of the possibilities.
