Hi

I am currently in Sri Lanka on the west coast with my girlfriend.

In a couple of days i am planning on going to Colombo and then to Kandy (which i cant wait for), then on to Galle for a couple of days.

I really was hoping somebody could tell me of a cheap and quick way to get to Galle from kandy.

I know i can do it cheaply on the train but this takes about 6 hours and goes back via Colombo, does anyone know of the bus routes and where it is possible to get to Galle via a/c bus.

tried hiring a car or getting a taxi and i was quoted 80 pounds which i think is a bit steep and am not prepared to pay when the train is less than 3 pounds each.

Hope some one can give me some good advice.

cheers,

Matt
