Colombo - Kandy - Sigiriya

Hi!

I have a question regarding travelling to Kandy / Sigiriya from Colombo airport.

We would like to leave Colombo on 31 March (early morning) and take a bus to Kandy or even better to Colombo.

Does anybody know from where we can take the bus and when aproximately the bus leaves?

Thanks a lot!

Hi there,

Well see map and instruction here

https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g29396…

Sigiriya would be 4 buses and Kandy 2, and also a much shorter ride. Hence depending on how tired you are and what the further route is then Kandy is more logical. Actually if your transport is all public, Sigiriya as a base is a bad idea. Dambulla and Habarana are much better bases for that area with lots of bus lines, Sigiriya has exactly 1 bus line to/from Dambulla.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Go Kandy at first is easy.

There are buses from Katunayake Bus stand ( bus stand right next to air port) have direct buses to Kandy, 2 per hours... Dont go Colombo and and then Kandy... Get in a bus from Katunayake will save atleast 3 hours than you going Colombo and go Kandy
