Join me and explore Kandy in Sri Lanka. Besides Colombo, it is the only city in Sri Lanka which is handled as such. Kandy has nearly 120,000 inhabitants and whether you are interested in History or culture, Kandy can offer just enough of both. Visit temple Sri Dalada Maligawa, or very famous- the British Garrison Cemetery. Kandy is renowned for the great Kandy Esala Perahera, held over 10 days leading up to the Nikini poya (full moon) at the end of the month of Esala (July/August), but it has enough attractions to justify a visit at any time of year. Some of the Hill Country’s nicest boutique hotels nestle in the hills surrounding Kandy, and the city is a good base for exploring the underrated terrain of the nearby Knuckles Range. Have a good vacation and let me guide you a little through my hometown.
