What is the beautiful and safest(travel alone) from Negombo/colombo to Nuwara elia?
Fastest is cab, around 5 hour. About as beautiful as the train which follows a different route; longer, esp. from Negombo as you need to transfer in Colombo. Safetywise no difference really as long as it's daytime.
All the best,

One question though.
1.Is this the right train I should take?
2.Is there a reason they are not showing dates after friday 23rd?
3.There is no markup for female seats,can I just book different one?
for much train info. Yes Rajadhani and Exporail are the Internet bookable ones; both have theirn quirks e.g. indeed RE opening solely 14 days before date, weird! And none has female-only seats as they're always only one coach...
All the best,
