Travel to Galle
Bus – the bus station is located next to the cricket ground and has links to Colombo (3 hours), Hikkaduwa (30 minutes) and Matara (1 hour).
Train – if you are looking to get to/from Colombo, I would highly recommend taking the scenic train journey running alongside the Indian Ocean (2 hours). There are also services to Matara (1 hour), Mirissa (90 minutes) and Kandy (6½ hours). The railway station is approximately 1km away from the fort area of Galle.
Where to stay in Galle
I would recommend staying in the Fort area of Galle, with the Frangipani Motel being right in the middle. Clean and comfortable, the owners offered a fantastic breakfast in the morning.
