DAYS 8-11 | Kandy
Highlights: Visit the Temple of the Tooth; Stroll around the Botanical Gardens; Walking tour of Kandy
En route to Kandy, you’ll swing past the five spectacular caves at Dambulla, replete with stunning art and countless Buddha statues, which have drawn pilgrims for over 2,000 years. Arriving at Kandy House, your home in Kandy, in the early afternoon leaves plenty of time to refuel on the delicious cuisine and have a lazy afternoon. There’s a lot going on in Kandy and you’ll want to tick off a few key sites, including the phenomenal botanical gardens and the sacred Temple of the Tooth. And if you have the energy, your guide will be on hand to escort you to some of the lesser known, fascinating sites, such as the spice market, costume museum and old British military cemetery.
