The Bus To Habarana

A vehicle that nearly took my life every time i stepped foot on them

We decided to attempt the buses again… Success!! Our tuk tuk driver shouted at the bus drivers until we found the right one. To our our delight it turned out the bus was a small private air conditioned bus with comfy seats!! Oh it’s going so well 🙂
This 2 and a half hour journey set us back 360 rupees, a mere £1.70. It took us from Kandy to a town called Dambulla, we then jumped onto a public bus to Habarana which cost 44 Rupees (16p) MAD!
If anyone is reading blogs as I did, looking for advice and guidance about the buses all I say I just ask anyone and everyone!! People are willing to help! A tuk tuk driver will take you to the exact bus if you ask them to. As long as you know the name of the area you want to go to the majority of people will do their upmost to lead you in the right direction!! It’s remarkably easy – perseverance is key! Oh and guts, because those bus drivers drive like maniacs. Ignorance is bliss people!
