“most memorable”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

i was very lucky to be there during Visak Poya Day celebrations!
the whole city was beautifully decorated and illuminated with colorful lanterns! Everyone was in a festive mood, relaxed and enjoying the outing. the amazing event was free food, snacks, drinks even cone ice creams were offered to every one. although I had been to this beautiful country many times, I can say this was my best...

“You can't miss this if you are at kandy (or even passing by)”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

a hard to miss place in Kandy , since the city has got its beauty because of this beautify lake in the middle of it. Don't forget to throw in some food(bread) for the fish in the lake (don't know its allowed now) .

“Colombo to Kandy. So easily reachable.”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Kandy is a very popular destination for the visitors of Sri Lanka and as oppose to usual belif, it is so easy to reach there from Colombo.

Kandy is about 116 KM from Colombo and takes about 2 and half hour travel time.

There is a train at 7:00am from Fort station in Colombo which very conveniently drops you at Kandy station by 9:15am. A second class ticket cost only 350 Rupees. Alternatively, you may consider taking mini buses operated by tour operators around Fort stations area, which cost little more but leaves to Kandy almost every 45 minutes.

Unlike popular belif, it is very easy to reach Kandy from Colombo.
