Negombo to Kandy

We (a couple) arrive in Colombo Intl Airport at 2 in the morning.

typically how long does it take to clear immigration and customs?i

Is it complete madness to arrange a car to drive us straight to Kandy?

What is normal fare for a taxi from Negombo to Kandy?

Thanks for your help.

Hi there,

1] 45 to 60 mins. The luggage tends to be the bottleneck, e.g. suitcase 1 might already be on the belt once you've cleared Immigration but suitcase 2 might take 20 more minutes...

2] If you're not too tired why not? It's only about 3 hours.

3] If you mean from airport to Kandy: Rs 9,000 or the like. Cars are readily available from the six counters at Arrivals.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
