Travel Tips for Kandy

Buddhist monks

by alycat

Buddhist monks are a common sight in Sri Lanka. Their bright orange robes often clad with a matching umbrella makes them a noticeable entity. See them on public transport, shopping, in the three-wheeled ‘tuk tuks.’ Monks clearly command respect here. You are xpected to vacate your seat for a monk when one enters the bus, women are to avoid any kid of contact with them.

Many believe that the most effective way to reach a conflict resolution in Sri Lanka would be to involve the monks in the peace negotiation process at local level.

Wild Elephants

by ogb4619

This is either off the Beaten Path from Colombo or from Kandy, i don't know, it's about 1/2 way.!!

If you're lucky to be there at the right time, the wild elephants from the reserve come down to the river to bathe, drink and play.
Sometimes there are nearly 50.
You can get up close if the handler is close by.
otherwise, there's a great restaurant attached and overlooking the river.
Restaurant prices are less than US$5 each.

There's also a nice handicraft shop with a fair range of local products but start your bargain at around 75% of the price and stop at around 80%.

If you've never seen Asian elephants up close and personal, STOP HERE.

Ram's restaurant!

by daryll about Ram's restaurant!

First of all it's a south indian cuisine, it is delicious, it's just damn good! For a very cheap price you are able to have a big full meal.

Warning, don't order to many of it, as it was a big meal Pepper Chicken Dosa and Banana Lassi

Esala Perahera

by mafi_moya

The Esala Perahera in Kandy is far and away the biggest and most important of all Sri Lankan perahera festivals. Held in the lunar month of Esala it celebrates the month in which Buddha was conceived and many years later left his family home. The Kandy festival has been held annually for many centuries and falls in July/August, lasting for ten days.

The 10 days are made up of torchlight processions of ornately decorated (and illuminated) elephants, Kandyan drummers and dancers, pilgrims, and all kinds of entertainers from acrobats to jugglers and stiltwalkers.The processions are watched by hundreds of thousands of people. For the first five days most of the celebrations take place within the temples; the next five are taken out into the streets. The highlight is the most famous elephant, the Maligawa Tusker, carrying the casket containing the Buddha's tooth relic around the temples. On the 11th day the relic is returned to the Temple of the Tooth in a final daylight procession.

Needless to say, Kandy is incredibly busy during Perahera! Book ahead or you might as well not bother coming - rooms are booked months in advance and prices treble at least. If you do get there, it's worth settling down somewhere hours in advance in order to get a good view. Dalada Veediya (the main street) and the northwest corner of the lake are probably the best and therefore busiest spots.
