1. Re: Kandy Festival

Hi there,

The festival is July 31st to August 10th this year.

The last days are always the most spectacular but also the most busy; acco gets quite expensive but also tickets along the route can rise sky-high, so make sure you get a good quote beforehand.

Yes, should be safe there. It is always recommended to avoid large gatherings, esp. in Colombo, but Kandy has hardly any LTTE-sympathetic Tamil population (contrary to Colombo) and security is always very tight around the festival.

Have a nice time,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
