From Trincomalee to Colombo by Buses

Passenger reviews out of total 21 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

I enjoy train travel and slept in the top bunk just fine. My daughter also slept ok in the bottom bunk. Mark didn't rest because of the noise and movement. Bathroom was shared between two adjacent two berth rooms. It was repulsive. I am used to that but it would not be hard to improve your standards here please.
