      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.

      Tired legs in a city.

      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 …

      ... requests (mine) and a lot of laughter (his), we agreed on 500SKR (£12 each), which I was pretty chuffed with really! Fingers crossed Paul likes cold toast... With my sights firmly set on Sri Lanka's oldest town, Anuradhapura, I bartered my way to the bus station via tuk tuk, leapt aboard a bus that was pulling out of the station (hey it said AC on it - I'm easing myself into the stuffy traveler thing, remember?), and headed off to Colombo. An hour later, ...

      We have several things to do and see today because we want to leave Kandy tomorrow and head for Sigiriya. The first on our list for today is to visit the Temple of the Scared Tooth. It is home to a tooth that belong to Buddha. (So it is said and believed!) In order to access the temple we had to follow a long procession of locals carrying flowers for their offerings. We had to remove ...
