After 4 days in Colombo, it is time to go back to the Maldives. With the political situation (the country on state of emergency as per President's order), I was asked by several of my Sri Lankan friends if everything is fine. Of course, all is fine… Trust me. :-)
I Ubered from my hostel in Galle Road all the way to Bandaranaike International Airport (CMB). Took an hour and paid RS2,200 or about US$14.
Here are a couple of photos of the hostel, pretty decent, about US$8 a night - nice working AC, fast wifi and with simple breakfast. Showers and toilets are ok.
The night before flying, took a stroll within the vicinity of the hostel and took these photos.
Arrived at the airport at 1AM for a 6AM flight so I took some photos and eventually settled for a good massage before checking - in.
There are a total of 3 security checks here. First one is during the very first time you enter the airport - there will be a long queue here as some non passengers can go in and send off their loved one. Second one is before approaching the check - in counters and lastly, going into your gate.
These are before checking - in for my flight.
After immigration, here are some snaps.
At 4AM, I was so sleepy and visited The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.
Walking towards Gate 9, which was not very far from the coffee shop.
Inside Gate 9. Still very sleepy this time.
Lav Tradition. Clean and Tidy. :)
Here are some photos of the cabin. I like the look of it.
Breakfast was simple.
Flight was very quick and soon enough approached Velana International Airport (Male).
Thank you for your time although there were already a few report of the same route before… :-)
Colombo - CMB
Malé - MLE
Another good flight with KE. I am seeing myself flying with them again in the future....
