Kandy is a city which holds a special place in the heart of many Sri Lankans. It has been the seat of history and culture for many centuries and remains to be a city of significance even to date. Read on to find out more about why visiting Kandy is a great idea!
Where Can You Stay?
Some of the most comfortable stays in Asia can be found in Kandy, Sri Lanka! Luxury resorts such as the likes of Earl’s Regency Kandy offer wonderful accommodation for a pleasant and memorable stay. So, whether you’re travelling in a large group or with your better half, there are plenty of great places to stay in Kandy.
When to Visit?
When travelling to Kandy, it’s best to avoid the two monsoon seasons which run from around May to July and then again from October to December or so. Since Kandy is nestled on a plateau in the mountainous region, the climate in the city is generally a lot cooler than in the bustling capital of Colombo.
Ever wanted to explore a garden which was once reserved exclusively for the monarchy? Come and explore the Royal Botanic Gardens of Peradeniya which is only a 15-minute drive out of the centre of Kandy. It’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon in the bliss and tranquillity of nature!
Explore the Town
Walk along the banks of the Kandy Lake to gaze upon the large temple of the tooth relic on the other side of the still waters. The city has the vibes of an old town with its street vendors, colourful stalls and cute cafes and eateries inviting passers-by in for a famous Sri Lankan “short eat” and an iced coffee.
