What people say

"Kandy is an important city that has lot to offer. I had the chance to attend to a Buddhist Ceremony, and it was really impressive, as in there is where one of the Buda's tooth is kept. In addition to that, you can visit the huge Buda statue and monastery located on top of the city before moving to the tea plantations towards the interior part. "
"Kandy it’s a big city in the centre of the island. We were there for the Esala Perahera and literally the city is in pure chaos! Everything is closed and even walking around the city will be difficult. The show is bittersweet: elephants in chains and a lot of noise, lights and a lot of crowd!"
