We arrive in Sri Lanka tomorrow evening and have a room booked for two nights in Negombo. Our plan was to head to Elle on the 2nd August. However, the train doesn't go from Negombo station and so it seems we would need to get a train from Negombo to Colombo Fort at 7ish, taking 90 minutes, then find the train to Elle from Colombo Fort.
Our other option is to cancel the second night of our Negombo room and aim to move to a cheap hotel near Colombo Fort station in the city on the 1st.
OR...take a taxi from our hotel in Negombo on the morning of the 2nd.
Can anyone make any suggestions for cheap hotels near colombo fort??? cost of cabs from negombo to colombo fort???
and our options in general!
