A scenic delight… The journey is mostly along the coast, with open sea views for the majority of the way. There will be a few sellers selling water, fruit and delicious snacks on the way but the COLOMBO FORT to WEWURUKANNALA train will most probably be full and possibly uncomfortable after a long flight.
On the COLOMBO FORT - Galle - Matara - WEWURUKANNALA train route, virtually all seats are unreserved so pre-booking is neither necessary nor possible, which means you cannot book a seat unfortunately. Tickets are only sold on the day at the ticket office. Tickets cannot sell out though.
