What to expect

Start with a pick-up from the hotel at 8.00 am and drive to the UNESCO World Heritage site, the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic that houses the relic of the tooth of the Buddha. You will spend about an hour at the temple before going to the British Garrison cemetery established in 1817 and closed in 1873 due to the ban of burials in municipal limits. Then, get in a Tuk Tuk and go around Kandy Lake to go to Bahirawakanda, a village near Kandy city, there you will see Bahiriawakanda Temple, situated on a hill just 2 km away from the Temple of the Tooth Relic. The temple has one of the biggest Buddha statues in Sri Lanka and the hill provides a panoramic view of Kandy city, making it a must-see for everyone visiting Sri Lanka.

After that, continue with a city tour of Kandy, a charming hill country and the second-largest city of Sri Lanka. It is the country's cultural and religious center and a part of the cultural triangle of Sri Lanka that is also considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site. To experience the life of a local, you will visit a local market that sells vegetables, fruits, dry rations, and spices. Then, see Kandy from its viewpoint or known as Arthur's seat, the author and tea planter living in a bungalow near this place. It's located past the royal palace park and 550 meters above sea level which provides a panoramic view across the Kandy Lake and Temple of the Tooth Relic. To end the tour, you will have lunch with a panoramic view of Kandy.
