    Nice hotel over looking suburbs and the hills. Monkeys in the trees around the hotel. We stayed in room 103 which has a fantastic view through the large windows over the hills. Lovely to wake up too. Breakfast it a bit thrown together and can be cold. Dinner is nice. Booked a couple of trips from here which were good. Hotel is a bit noisy with thing walls and doors. doesn't mater much. Overall a good hotel.

    Today is an early start for the train ride to Kandy. This is meant to be a highlight of the trip because of the stunning views. The train was almost fully booked and we were only able to get 3rd class tickets. We are a bit worried as all the other westerners are taking either 1st class or observation class tickets in the flash end of the train. We …

    Another early start as we want to make the most of the day. Our driver meets us outside the hotel and seems like a really nice friendly guy. We head off to Sygiria Fortress which is about 2-3 hours drive from Kandy.

    Sigiriya Fortress (lion rock) is a 4th century fortress built on top of a huge 200 metre high rock.

    ... included and lovely hosts meant it was a relaxing venue. We ended up having 2 nights here with a night in Sigiriya inbetween.

    Much of Kandy was hectic and vibrant during our visit due to the Dalada Perahara and Escala festival at the Temple of the Tooth. This temple was fun to visit, buzzing with people offering flowers and prayers to the Buddhas and teeming with intrigued tourists. The surrounding Kandy mountains provide ...

    ... an idea of the scale of the lion, which would have been a spectacular site and surely a more exciting way of climbing the rock than the staircases and handrails now in place. We then began our final climb to reach the summit of the rock, with the metal stairway jutting out from the side of the rock, which, if you looked down, felt quite precarious. Nevertheless, we reached the top, hot and slightly damp even though it was still well before midday. The summit covers ...

    ... rush you in and out I made my to the newer and much large shrine hall called the Alut Maligawa where there are dozens of sitting Buddhas lined up along the walls. This hall was different than other temples I’ve seen and learned it is because the design resembles a Thai Buddhist shrine. There were many people here sitting on the floor in front of the various Buddhas’ praying and a large number of families with very young babies; ...
