The Full Experience

Venture around the city of Kandy with your local host and explore the ornate temple housing one the last remaining relics of Buddha – his tooth!

This walk begins alongside Kandy Lake, at the center of the city and bounded by a distinct “cloud wall”.  As your host guides you around the lake, hear stories of Sri Lanka’s last kingdom and follow the footsteps of countless Buddhists through the ornate grounds of the Temple of the Tooth, peppered with monuments to significant times in the island’s history. Explore the streets on foot, visiting a local church, passing the busy shops of Ali Mudukkuwa and the city’s impressive clock tower.  Drop in for a drink at the Empire Café and end your walk at Kandy Market surrounded by local life and an exciting array of exotic fruits and vegetables.

Hosted by Kandyan

Your host has lived in Kandy his whole life, growing up and studying here before starting his own family. He has seen the city change much over the years and has an excellent grasp of local culture and Sri Lankan history. His easy-going style lends itself well to guiding others around his country and in 2014 he obtained his guiding license specializing in personalized travel and Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle.
