    Arriving at Colombo city

    March 14, 2020 in Sri Lanka ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Unlike other southeast Asia airports the Colombo airport was pretty organised, safe and comfortable. Apart from the extra health checks, due to the Virus risk, I could easily collect my baggage, walk smoothly through immigration and customs and purchase a Sri Lankan SIM card to order an Uber for me to my hotel.

    The trip from the airport took about and hour for a cost of 1400 LRK, converted about 7€. Fair enough to give the driver 70LRK tip!

    The hotel and my room was a bit outside the city center, but as stunning as it has been promised on the pictures. And due to the widely available Uber cars and TukTuks I could come around quiet easy.

    Finally! While Patong was awesome it was really just a drop in, Sri Lanka is our real first Dora-Explorer dirt-leg. 3h30min flight from Kuala Lumpur, and we gained 2h30mins...awesome! Must say this time we slept through the whole flight mostly...revved up to explore Sri Lanka.......and we find out it’s a holiday here today 🤦🏼‍♀️... to the hotel, got room upgraded, OBVIOUSLY...and then headed out to get our train tickets for Kandy tomorrow, because if you don’t get them early enough you get 3rd class tickets...and it’s a bit rough in that carriage.

    Grabbed a tuk-tuk and got our 2nd class tickets, with the help of a nice Sri Lankan lady who works in Kandy.

    Then we asked our Tuk-Tuk driver to take us to a restaurant or place where there’s really good Sri Lankan food. Boom! Best Chicken Briyani EVER!
