    Note: they have Uber in Colombo. Go for it, it would be cheaper than any tuk-tuk around.

    For the first time in my life I've seen an airport, where you need to pay to enter Arrivals. Worth to note, if you're planning to meet your friends later or vice versa.

    Security check is very light and easy. Upstairs you can get cheaper Italian coffee at Barista (Lavazza), located near Coffee bean, just around the corner. Pass for LankaComWifi@CoffeeBean: mochajava

    Simple low-frills airport. Get your visa online in advance to avoid any delays. Cheapest way into the city is Bus 187 which runs about 120 rupees. Pick up in the lot on left as exiting the airport.

    Not sure about the old complaints wrt restroom cleanliness. I used the men's room by the Lavazza & it was quite clean. The Lavazza also serves quite a good ice lemon tea. Not too sweet w/ real lemon.

    Full amenities. Do note that everything at the airport are priced in USD and is more expensive from what you get outside. The foot massage place is quite good.

    Several lounge choices and some other interesting shops selling cashews and other local products. Bring your premiere club card as the other lounge gets super crowded.

    Some of the lounges in the upper level of the terminal offer unlocked wifi. At Coffee Bean the wifi name is NOT coffee bean (though it shows) but Password is mochajava :)

    Fine airport. Try be first off the plane, however, as immigration queues can get long if there are several flights arriving at once. Duty free is available for arrivals too.

    Check out the new prayer room. (at the left hand corner, when you come on to the first floor) Well maintained. Easy to do wudhu in the washroom next to it. Has a "foot wash" place too! Read more

    Sri Lankan departures are straight through when you enter the departure hall, all other airlines to the left. At busy times the queue can be somewhat chaotic.

    Be aware of tuk-tuk scamers when you go out. Better talk to your hotel/host/friend to arrange you something. Buy a local simcard. It's cheap and will give you internet access almost everywhere.

    Sometimes the queue to get in at the entrance to the airport can be long. And worse the queues to check-in can be quite harrassing too, if you come in at a busy time.

    Power sockets to charge your phone are dispersed sparsely through the terminal. Souvenir shops mostly sell the same thing with no variance, but a large number of shops to buy tea.

    Hardly any signs. Got there at 2 am. It was difficult to get info on how to get to the city. There are airport shuttles to the city that cost you Rs 110 bit not sure if they operate at that hour

    Very crowded and has queues everywhere. To save time, get your passport and ticket ready right at the entrance. Also, as a passenger, you do NOT need to buy airport ticket (yes, it is a thing)
