Tuk tuk at 5 am in colombo

Hi,

Will I get a Tuktuk early in the morning to catch a train from Colombo Fort? I want to be in the station at 5am. Plan to stay somewhere close by 3-4 KMs away max.

Regards

We caught that train on Wednesday, we booked a taxi which our hotel organised, there were tuk this around though. You could organise one the night before to be sure.

Just speak to a tuk tuk driver the night before. Or you could call a radio taxi like Kangaroo in the morning.

There's always some tuk tuks out roaming in Colombo, just be outside early so you have a little extra time and go to a main street and someone will stop, even if you don't want them to.
