Srilanka: Safety in the night from Colombo to Bentota

Is it safe to travel from Colombo airport to Bentota at 9pm in the night?

Is taking public transport preferable in this case?

If you have baggage with you take a taxi. No that it is particularly unsafe but will give you peace of mind. Colombo goes dead in the evenings, no night life. You should not have any problems in Bentota.
