Colombo to Hikkaduwa via A2 main coastal road is like 100 km & here drop rate is 75 per km hence fair price is 100 x 75 is lkr 7500 which is approximately USD 50. But if you are travelling via expressway then more kms and the cost is like lkr 9000 [ USD 60] plus lkr 400 toll
Yep. Should be pretty big next year since it will be 70.
There's supposed to an International cricket tournament as well
Thank you both for your replies. Still working tirelessly on the itinerary. When is the location usually announced for the celebrations?
Also, how easy is it to get tickets for a cricket match and how much are they generally? I'm not a fan but if it's reasonable I don't see why not :)
Hi. ,unless the match is against India I would think you could go along on the day of the game and gain admittance,the queue could be rather large though, the option would be to go Cricket H Q at Maitland Place and purchase there,the tickets are really cheap compared to UK prices.If it's an overs match it's definitely worth going,the atmosphere is great.Shame we miss it by 4 days,never mind if I'm still breathing I will be there in November when England are touring.
Choice between Columbo and Negombo,depends what you want to do and how long you are going to stay at that location.Edited: 23 October 2017, 20:41
