Nestled between mountains in inland Sri Lanka, Kandy proudly bears its World Heritage Site designation while remaining culturally independent and colorfully picturesque.
Kandy Garrison Cemetery and Kandy War Cemetery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get some historical perspective at Shri Bhakta Hanuman Temple and Nalanda Gedige. Change things up with these side-trips from Kandy: Matale (Euphoria Spice and Herbal, Aluvihara Rock Cave Temple, & more), Nuwara Eliya (Holy Trinity Church & Piduruthalagala Forest Reserve) and Elephant Freedom Project (in Kegalle). There's lots more to do: relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, examine the collection at Ceylon Tea Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Embekke Devalaya, and make a trip to Lankatilaka Temple.

For photos and tourist information, refer to the Kandy attractions planning site .

Colombo to Kandy is an approximately 1-hour flight. You can also do a combination of taxi and train; or drive. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
