Enjoying Kandy (and the bakeries)

A travel blog entry by tomandgem


We were happy to leave India and start a new journey to Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka has a recent violent past with civil war only ending in 2009. My first observation when we landed was that people smile here (unlike in India). Landing in Colombo, we were feeling lazy so haggled hard for a taxi to drive us to Kandy (rather than catching a tuk tuk and then …

Hill country speed tour

A travel blog entry by sean.johanna


We decided to get off the beach and be cultural. Therefore we hired a car and driver to spend some days exploring the Hill Country of Sri Lanka. A completely different world to the never ending beaches of the south. The first stop on the trip was in a small temple outside of Tangaller which I really could not recall the name of. Like always temples …

Colombo to Kandy by train

A travel blog entry by nixtravels

After breakfast at 8 walked to cinnamon gardens shopping area intending to look for clothes, but all suspiciously quiet and closed. It turned out to be a Tamil public holiday, so no shopping.

Botanical Gardens & Pinewela Elephants

A travel blog entry by mad-marlin


The Botanical Gardens are 6km outside Kandy city and worth a visit. We spend over 2 hours wandering the quiet lanes of the gardens.

    This is the second time i visited Srilanka. And to be honest i had the best time at Blinkbonnie in Kandy. I recommend it to all travelers visiting Srilanka

    I was served by a friendly helpful staff, with the most amazing spice food I've Tasted in Kandy

    I enjoyed a tour all around Srilanka, for a fair good price, and it was generally amazing, as i got a luxury vehicle and a friendly driver.

    And I'd say Thanks a million times to Mr. Steven as he helped me so much with everything and providing a good service

    One again i recommend this place to everyone.
