Haputale to Colombo Any Hotel Destination Reviews

Train #1046 First Class Sleeper , Sri Lanka Railways, Mar 7, 2020
12Go.Asia service is very good. Arranged to deliver and received my 1st class berth ticket from the hotel. But the night mail journey is not good. Very bad toilet. It will be much convenient if their service office is located close to either Airport or Colombo railway station. It will save money and anxiety to customers for receiving the tickets. Overall, the 12 go.asia service is excellent.

They were on time and efficient. The driver drove a little fast on the windy mountain roads for our liking but we also understand that driving styles are different than what we're used to. If you easily get car sick, I would not recommend driving or having a driver as the route is rather windy. Thanks for being able to support this request within a days notice and your responsiveness!
Train #Viceroy II #1008 VIP AC, ViceRoy II by 12Go (Viceroy II by 12Go), Dec 22, 2019
We loved everything about the carnage really. I’m rating it 4 star only because the windows can’t open and you really can’t see the scenery and take same pictures either . But everything else was perfect. Very comfortable, WiFi, a bar to order drinks, no food though but we managed to order some sort of lunch boxes from one of the stations.

Car was 1.5 hours picking us up and no notification / we were chasing them for an update; for a 6 hour drive taking us to airport didn't need that poor start. Van was average , comfortable but damaged rear window stuck up with plastic. Driving overall was ok and second driver very good we had to tell drivers a few times to slow down , nothing silly. We caught train up from Colombo and Kandy to Ella and although takes a bit longer so much more relaxing - if you have the time. Vans in Sri Lanka choose carefully.
Train #1016 1st Class Seat, Sri Lanka Railways, Jan 3, 2019
We were very satisfied with the service provided by 12 Go Asia and their subagent(s) in Sri Lanka. Booking in advance a train trip from Ella to Colombo is not easy from overseas (Denmark), but the Man in Seat 61 mentioned 12 Asia Go, so we tried this, and all ended well. Our ticket was delivered by hand at our hotel in Kandy (we had paid 10 usd for this extra service, as we weren’t going to Colombo). The reservation was correct, the train on time, and we enjoyed the spectacular scenery from the highlands down to the coast.
Train #1046 First Class Sleeper , Sri Lanka Railways, Dec 5, 2018
Took the Night Mail sleeper train, 1st class berth from Badulla to Colombo Fort. You can take this train for the experience, but not for a good night's sleep. The train rattles and shakes the whole way. Also try not to use the washroom unless in a dire emergency, they're disgusting. Don't plan tight connections in Colombo either, this train arrived 2.5 hours behind schedule.

Best-Rated Companies for this Route

Unlike buses or taxis which have numerous companies offering their services, train service is usually offered by just one major company in each country. As railway service requires a large amount of infrastructure, most railway companies are government-owned and are a part of the national transport system.

Immediately on arrival to their destination, travellers find themselves in close proximity to important facilities like hotels, supermarkets, and hospitals.

If you travel with a lot of bags and luggage, trains are your best option. Luggage weight limits on trains are rather flexible and allow you to carry multiple bags with you.

Special or luxury trains feature sufficient legroom which allows you to stretch your legs and relax. In comfort and space these train seats can be compared to business class airplane seats.

Similar to buses, trains can provide a variety of amenities to make your travel more comfortable and enjoyable. Modern trains have WIFI service, a snack counter and a drinking bar. Onboard toilets can be a life saver for travellers with queasy stomachs.
