Hi Blondie,

Car with driver.

Shortest route: Avissawella-Kottawa-Expressway. About 200 km and due to the E-way 4-5 hours drive.

Nicest route: Eliya-Haputale-Ella-Hambantota-Galle. About 250 km and about 8 hours drive (mountaneous and no Expressway).

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Thanks for the advice. I was hoping that it would be possible to get a train but I guess I haven't done my homework!

You can go by train from Hatton to Galle - with a change in Colombo.

is it quickest to travel with a driver rather than take a train?

Yes, a LOT difference here due to the huge detour the train takes. 4 hours minimum by car, about 9 hours by train (and only 2 trains per day).

All the best,
