Favorite thing: I felt like a superstar. The Kandyan are very friendly and gentle, im so pampered with their hospitality. During my road trips, i tend to wave at the locals (saying hello) and they excitedly waving back at us non stop, a welcoming gesture of our arrival
During your journey onwards or inwards of Kandy, you definitely pass one of the most important river which regularly used by the locals to do their laundry. We stop over and took some pictures and at least feeling the fresh cool water flowing from the Kandy hills.
Fondest memory: The shy ladies were quite fascinated to see us and greeted us meanwhile they continue singing while washing their clothes. I felt like doing a documentary film on them.
Kandy is supposed to be a city of charm and a city of culture. I had high expectations. It's
situated beside a lake in the hills, roughly about 2 hours from Colombo. Ands it's famous... for its Temple of the Tooth, and for its dances.
Fondest memory: Kandy is a dump: it's really deprived of any charm... the place looks as if it's crumbling down, falling apart, disintegrating... maybe i wish it did. Reconstruction can only do some good to it. The temple, in all fairness is ok, the dances a real big-scale tourist trap-
Kandy is a pretty little town located in central part of Sri Lanka. The town just centers around an artificial lake, many hotels and houses looking down the lake from the hills. This would be a nice place to have a short break from a hectic travel schedule.
The people in Sri Lanka are generally nice, and it is even more true here in Kandy. Despite its status as a tourist destination, there is still a laid back small town character to its people.
Fondest memory: Waking up in the early morning and opening our balcony looking over the Kandy hills enjoying the fresh morning cool air while the sun rising was the best memory i had in Kandy.
