About the neighbourhood
Kandy is thecultural capital; of Sri Lanka and a World Heritage City. The city centre includes theTemple of the Tooth, the holiest place of Buddhist worship in the island. There is also Kandy Lake and a nature reserve close to the centre as well as excellent shopping and other city facilities Just down the road are the splendid Peradeniya Botanic Gardens, a great place to spend a day and have a picnic. Kandy was the last part of Sri Lanka to be taken by the British and its history and culture include spectacular dance and the annual Perahera festival - the world's biggest street parade - in July or August depending on the full moon..
Getting around
Public transport in Sri Lanka is pretty basic, and though there are trains and some of the journeys offer stunning views, the trains are few and far between and poorly maintained - so do be prepared to face some discomfort on your train journeys! Buses are frequent but again unpredictable and often crowded.
Hiring a car and drive for around £50 per day is by far the easiest option, the driving in Sri Lanka is pretty crazy, so we do not advise driving yourselves as the cost is not much less and it canbe very stressful and potentially dangerous!
