Getting around in Kandy can be slow going. Take into account the average speed of traffic (about 20 mph); even though the roads are not bad, they are full of old smoking trucks doing 5 mph with no passing places (unless you take your life in your hands). At this pace, you may only get to  four attractions in six days.

When visiting Sri Lanka, take little luggage as possible, lots of small notes because you could fine yourself tipping often! And stay one day here and there near to where you wish to visit next. This is not a cheap place to be, (as it used to be).
