Somewhere to store luggage in Colombo?

Hi,

We will have a few hours to kill in Colombo before taking our flight home. Is there anywhere you can store luggage? Reasonably safe?

We'll be arriving by train, is there any safety deposit boxes at the train station?

Regards,

Andreas

Hi There,

No, there is no any safety deposit boxes at the train stations, as far as I know there is only at airport.

Well not lockers but a staffed counter. Far east side of Fort station (towards bus stand). About same rates as airport left luggage counter and same (good) quality. Precondition: bags must be locked, so for e.g. a backpack this means a separate ziplock and for suitcases also excludes certain types.

All the best,

The world market is just next door to the train station and you might find it here. If not, there are plenty of shops around in the fort area where you can find them easily.

Treshi.
