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.

How has this hostel rated in the past?
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.
