There are no public transport from air port.but there is bus station at awariwaththa all the buses start from there and its not that much far.you can get bus to colombo then colombo to galle.from colombo you can travel by bus or train.for this mode take more time.
But if you use private car you will save time and comfortable.
Hi, private car would cost approx LKR 8000 - 9000/-. You can get a car from the Airport desk located at the arrival lounge. This is the fits counter on your right, after passing the custom gate.
Yes post 1 is incorrect, there is a bus stop at airport. 187 should run all night and EX03 should start 6 AM or so. But using purely bus/train is 5-6 hours to Galle. Cab is 3 hours (and costs most); a hybrid model could be cab to Kadawatha bus stand (Rs 2500) and then EX01 bus to Galle. Total 3.30 hours.
