      Beds a bit like old hospital beds but nice enough.

      I stayed in the olde empire. it was nice experience. I liked the wooden house and the main central location. the balcony in the second floor is the "cherry" of the hotel with cozy chairs and beautiful design.
      The rice and curry in the restaurant downstairs is also amazing.

      The cons are the not so clean sheets and cold water in the shower.

      A travel blog entry by beckeyjw on Apr 27, 2014

      On Saturday by the time we arrived, after climbing Adams Peak, we were pretty tired and didn't really appreciate the walking, especially up and down the stairs, but we could already see how big the city was and how upmarket certain shops were. We had had found a cheap place to stay, which was right next to the temple of the tooth, and the lake but …

      Die alte Reichsstadt Kandy... Ein ständiges Gewusel... viele Farben und Gerüche, lautes Hupen und Massen an Menschen und Verkehr.. umgeben von Gebäude im Kolonialstil. Hat was!
      Erholung gibts am See und rund um den Zahntempel. Den …

      ... be confined for the next day or two if things kick off, we continue on to the Rangahala Cultural Dance centre for a display of Sri Lankan dance and fire-walking scheduled for our amusement tomorrow.

      The polls have closed and it is dark by the time we reach our hotel, the Cinnamon Citadel high on the hills above Kandy on the banks of the Mahaweli river. We are shown to our room but the family next door are making so much noise we ask to move and get given a garden ...

Hij maakt niet alle batik zelf maar ik ben er overtuigd dat het geld hier toch op de juiste plek terecht komt. Sakula shows us some nice places in the neighbourhood. Our first stop is a batik shop. The Asoka family makes and sells homemade batik from their house. At first we think ok we'll undergo this tourist thing and move on to the ...

      ... tea museum. He looked a bit pushed for time but obliged, Raju's English wasn't great so it was difficult to tell him not to worry about it.

Despite his poor English, he liked to crack the odd joke, my personal favourite pointing at a picture of some cows ...
