want to make sure the DOCTOR’S HOUSE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
Over time we’ve got asked quite a few questions from travellers all around the world that stayed with us. We’ve written down the most common ones so you can be sure, that tDH is the right place to stay.
How do I get there?
If coming from Colombo, we recommend getting the highway bus to Matara as these buses run constantly all day (from 6am – 8:30pm). There are 3 main places to get this bus from (depending on what location suites you best) and they are Pettah, Kaduwela, or Maharagama. The bus trip is approximately 2.5 hours.
If coming from the airport, we recommend getting the highway bus from there straight to Matara, however there are only 2 buses daily, so you may prefer to get a taxi/tuk tuk to Colombo and then getting the highway bus from there.
Or alternatively, if you are not in a rush and you want to see some sights, then the train from Colombo to Matara is the way to go. It is cheaper and takes longer, but it is fun.
