On Saturday morning at 06:10 I took the 2nd class train (Rs 220) from Kandy to Colombo. The scenery was very nice on this leg. Mountains and jungle. And several short tunnels.
In Colombo, I stayed at the Parisare (again). I didn’t do much all day, just resting. My legs are finally recovered.
I took a pre-booked taxi out to the airport Sunday morning at 04:00. Price: Rs 2000 (yes, expensive). Flight to Singapore at 07:20. Arrival in Singapore around 15:00.
And then: MRT to Harbourfront Centre. Ferry to Batam Centre (SGD 23). Taxi (IDR 45k) to Hotel Istana Batam (IDR 139k), Nagoya.
And tomorrow: Plane to Jakarta (Lion Air, IDR 339k).
During my 23 days in Sri Lanka, I spent a total of 47,383 Sri Lankan Rupees (LKR). This is equivalent to 415.64 USD, or 18.07 USD per day.
