Experience the Sri Lankan History through the heritage architectureAt a distance of 2 hours from Nuwara Eliya lies one of the biggest cities in Sri Lanka, Kandy. The third destination on the itinerary, a former capital of the Sinhalese Kingdom, Kandy is a treasure trove of culture, history and art. It’s foggy landscape centers around an enchanting lake, a palace that stands true to the richness of the country’s pre-colonial past and the a scared city; all give it the charm of the land far, far away where the once upon a time of your travel tales will be written.
On the next day, we took the train to Kandy from Nuwara Eliya which sifts through the scenic tea estates of Nuwara Eliya (more like the Indian Shatabdi Express). This is another train journey that's worth's taking. Kandy is Sri Lanka's second biggest commercial city after Colombo. It is also a high-tourist zone, crowded indeed.
Took a bus to Kandy. This ones a 5 hours bus. While enjoying the view around was trying to understand the language on the Television in the bus. Yes you read it right! A TV! Some music channel was on and to our surprise I heard "Sheila ki jawani". Post listening to that song I somehow felt super comfortable in the bus ride.Finally, we reached Kandy, in the central province of Lanka. Nice weather. But we were still hungry, remember! We got down on the bus stop to have some food. And the food we had wasn't from KFC but was sure finger licking good.
Kandyour time in Colombo was done. we's explored just a little town-side and decided that we'd now like to explore other cities too! next stop was 'Kandy'. kandy is a quaint little hill town 4 hours away from Colombo.
