Hello! May I ask if there's any sleeper bus/train from Kandy to Trincomalee and from ella to galle?? Thanks
Hello, I miscalculated a bit the lenght of the trip (no direct train lines east of Ella ;-) bummer // or long detour via Kandy. Bus 76/218/314, Trincomalee, Badulla might be an option, and then tuktuk or train to Ella? But impossible to find any details on this line (where to board, how to get a seat, any resemblance of a time table)
I do not mind a long journey, as long as I have a seat.
Hello, I'm looking for public transportation between Jaffna and Trincomalee. Is it possible to catch a night bus, as this is a long journey (preferably with ac)? Thanks in advance!

Hi there, we are thinking of booking a holiday to Trincomalee. We have never been to Sri Lanka before, so are looking for beach/relaxation, but also to see a few of the amazing site e.g. tee plantation, elephants/wildlife, city and culture etc. are these achievable as day trips from Tincomalee? Thanks
Hi, how is the weather in January in Trincomalee and at the beaches on the East coast? I know it's rainy season, but can you still enjoy a nice beach holiday? Are most hotels open? Do people still stay on the beach? Or is it all deserted due to bad weather? Would south coast be much better? Or just a little better?
I am travelling in november 2014 from Jaffna to Trincomalee, what is the best way of transport? any timetables?

Hi all. I am really struggling to find good accomodation in and around the Trinco/Nilaveli area for August. Ideally, we'd like a beach front location, quite secluded and happy to go basic as long as it's clean and has mosquito nets! Our budget is £60pn - does anyone know of anywhere they'd recommend?
is there any Night Bus - Luxury or AC - service from Kandy or Kurunagela to Trincomalee. Frequency and time table of the service please
I am looking for someone to take a digital picture of a gravestone in the Trinco Protestant Cemetery. Also to find out if church birth/marriage/death records still exist for the area. Do you know of anyone?

How far and how long will it take for us to drive by car from Trincomalee to Jaffna?
And what is there to see in Trincomalee other than the beaches, and Pigeon Island?
My friends and I are trying to plan a trip through the east. We are starting in Kandy and then going up to Trincomalee, then Batticoloa and lastly Ampara and back to Kandy.
I've been trying to figure out how to get from Kandy to Trinco and I've never been more confused. Does anyone know if there are direct buses from Kandy to Trinco or any train service? If not, what are best routes from Kandy to Trinco using public transportation?
I've also been trying to find some budget accommodations in Trinco and it's been pretty much impossible. Does anyone know of places that are around Rs.1000-1500 per night for a double room?
Also, what is the best way to get to Batticoloa from Trinco? Also, is it possible to get from Batti or Ampara back to Kandy or would I have to go back to Trinco to find public transportation back to Kandy?
Sorry for all the questions! Any other advice/tips you have regarding the east coast would be much appreciated.
We are looking Holiday house for two days.
Suppose to come with our family members on 27Dec - 28Dec.
Please let me know.

Does anyone know whether the Sea Angler's Club in China Bay is open? Is it possible to make reservations? Does it still have motor boats for rod and line fishing? I am hoping to be in Trinco in August with a family of four - and the Sea Angler's Club is where we would like to stay if possible.

I am going to Sri Lanka in July for my honeymoon and wanted to stay in Trincomalee/ Nilaveli for a few days. I wondered if anyone had any hotel recommendations - The Nilaveli Beach hotel doesn't look that great, and I have read mixed reviews, although I understand it is on the most beautiful beach. I was thinking about the French Garden Guesthouse (maybe a bit basic????) or the Club Oceanic. Has anyone stayed in any of these? Any advice much apprecitated!! Emma
a group of us are planning to visit Trinco in December. One person will need to get back to the airport the next day. Is it possible to rent a car and driver from the Nilaveli Beach Hotel for the return trip for one person? Is it safe? Thanks!
We are going to wadduwa in September, I have read all the forum messages and this place is never mentioned, is it ok here or have we made a mistake. Are the beaches ok or is it better in the south. Thanks Mick
