Sorry we are only posting our first entry now! We started our trip off being quite busy, lots of buses, taxis and trains to get to places.
Basically after landing in Colombo on the 26th we got in a taxi and headed to the hill country. Stayed in Kandy the first night and as soon as we arrived we were off to the cricket …
We arrived in Colombo on 20th Feb after 14 hours of flying including a 2 hour stop in Mumbai (the chaotic security at Mumbai was probably a good indicator of things to come when we return!). The flights were just the start of our journey, however. From Colombo airport (which is 30km from Colombo) we decided to brave the dark streets to find a bus, …
What LP says: Some say Kandy is the only other real ‘city’ in Sri Lanka, other than Colombo. The easy-going capital of the Hill Country has a lot to offer – history, culture, forested hills and a touch of urban buzz.

Not centrally located but still nice hotel. The rooms are old fashioned and very large. Nice balcony overlooking the hillside of Kandy.
