Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stopped here during our tuktuk tour, one at the start of the tour while the other one was after watching the Kadayan Dance Show. It was cooler in the evening and the views of the lighted buildings/homes below are beautiful.

Worth the drive up to this view point to see the city from a different angle.
Of course there are many tat stalls touting for business and many bus loads of tourists with selfies being taken amass!

Arthur's seat Kandy is a pleasant view point of Kandy city .It merits a drive upto the survey highlight see the kandy city with perspectives on the waterway, the popular sanctuary and the previous palace.best spot to snap a few pictures of the town.
I'd suggest going during the day and night to see the full magnificence of the Kandy city.

The Upper Lake is a very beautiful lake viewed from the top of the hill. It is only a short walking distance from the top. Worth walking around the lake.

This is a nice spot for sweeping views of Kandy and it’s lake. I’d recommend going during the day and evening to see the full beauty of the city.

It was okay but not something breathtaking. There are many other places in Kendy that are more beautiful and worth visiting than this one

A purpose built viewing area beside the road large enough for a large group to gather but always relatively quiet when we passed. As it is just a viewpoint there is no charge, very good views over the lake towards the Temple of the Tooth complex of several buildings.
