Erholung gibts am See und rund um den Zahntempel. Den …

Day Four - Buddha's tooth temple

A travel blog entry by lets.get.lost


Our morning in Kandy began with a rushed walk to Kandy railway station to buy our train tickets for the following day. Being later in the morning the streets and markets were crowded with people, so making our way through the city proved quite difficult. We got there in the end. Our goal was to get our hot little hands on first class tickets for the morning train to Ella the next morning. The train ...

... out at sea for over 5 hrs but unfortunately didn't see much :( What we did see was a family of dolphins about 50 metres away briefly and a puff of air from a whales back from about 100 metres but was disappointed really. Mirissa was a very nice beach though and took full advantage of the 5pm-10pm happy hour(s)!

    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.
