Kandy is a major city, located in the Central Province, Sri Lanka. It is the second largest city in the country after Colombo. It is located in the mountainous center of the island. It is cultural capital of Sri Lanka, which crosses an area of tropical plantations, mainly tea. Kandy is one of the most beautiful cities of Sri Lanka that is known for its scenic beauty and rich cultural value. Spread over an area of around 1940 square kilometers, it is counted amongst the world heritage sites of UNESCO. The downtown area is really crowded and polluted by day, but it is also a major shopping destination where all kinds of goods imaginable can be purchased at surprisingly low prices. There are also numerous bakeries, offering delicious local treats all over downtown.

Fairly easy hike spot for outdoor lovers. Freezing cold if you arrive before sun rise. Make sure you arrive to witness the sun rise as it is one of the most beautiful scenes.

Nuwara Eliya - Central Province

It's the Tea capital with acres & acres of lush green tea gardens, well-maintained colonial buildings that reflect English architecture, and also the cool climate. This township reminds us of a typical English countryside, hence it's popularly refereed as "Little England"

We then headed to the scenic city of Nuwara Eliya which is 78 km away. This city is strikingly distinct from the rest of the county in its architecture. This place is best explored on foot. If you want to see a variety of plants then spending some time in Victoria Garden is ideal for you. You will find a few unusual building with a colonial era touch in the vicinity. A little further you have Horton Plains which was designed into a national park in 1988. Rivers Mahaweli, Kelani, and Walawe have their source here. Rivers, Baker's Falls, birds, variety of plants and animals make this place worth visiting. You can opt for guided walking safari.

Ceylon Tea Trails - Norwood Bungalow - Central Province

But that is what all of this escapade has been about: rarity, beauty, decadence without any faux pas. I ate to my heart’s desire as I had worked up quite the appetite after all of my ventures trekking trails and hiking from one bungalow to another, bird watching and exploring the tea garden grounds. My personal in-house chef catered to any culinary fantasy I may have had. I stayed in one day, just watching the rain, eating, drinking tea and playing board games. I could live like this forever.

Lake Gregory - Central Province

Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful. And the town of Nuwara Eliya is very lovely too. Best weather is all of SL. This town deserves a stay of at least 2-3 days. Another place of interest in NE is the Hakgala Botanical Garden where the famous Ashok Vatika is located.

Kitulgala - Central Province

Kitulgala is a small town in the west of Sri Lanka. The Kelani river (the broadest river in Sri Lanka) flowing through Kitulgala was the main location where the Oscar winning movie 'The Bridge over the River Kwai' was filmed. On the hill above this town, a prehistoric cave was recently discovered containing skeletal remains from some unknown civilization. Kitulgala is also a base for white-water rafting, which starts a few kilometers upstream.

St. Paul's Church - Central Province

Saint Paul’s church is found right next to the temple of the tooth and is a brilliant example of Sri Lanka’s tolerant ways towards other religions. It’s very traditionally Anglican, just like you would find in the UK! It was built in 1848 and was used as a Garrison church for the British troops during the colonial era. It is quite a marvelous sight and a sign of the Colonial past of Sri Lanka that still survives today.

Sigiriya Rock Fortress - Central Province

It was an ordeal to climb the 1200 steps in the scorching heat (up and down) but it was definitely worth the pain :), We hired a guide who charged us Rs 2500 (Srilankan rupees), we thought it was expensive but then we really didnt have a choice. There is no point in climbing all the way to the top without understanding the significance of every part of the fortress
