The Kandy Rundown
When the surrounding mist that hides the city in the early morning lifts, the town’s lovely lake, hilly countryside, charming houses, and welcoming Kandy hotels are beautifully revealed. Having resisted foreign invasion for three centuries, this Sri Lankan city was finally conquered by the British in the early 19th century. As the last capital of the Sinhalese Kingdom, back over 2500 years, Kandy has rightfully earned its World Heritage Site inscription from UNESCO.
Perched at an altitude of about 500 meters, Kandy offers you ancient temples, shrines, and Sinhalese palaces to discover and explore. The city centre is coloured by bustling street markets, vegetarian restaurants, sari-wearing women, and warm Kandy accommodation. Explore most of the town on foot and visit notable attractions that include the early 19th Century Kandy Garrison Cemetery and the sacred temples of Asgiriya Maha Vihara and Lankatilaka. The National Museum of Kandy holds precious artefacts that provide evidence of the city’s long and great history, while the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic is a premier religious site that houses the Buddha’s tooth.
There is a wide range of available accommodation in Kandy including those that are on the hillsides and provide gorgeous views. Kandy is only 115 kilometres from the capital city of Colombo. From the Bandaranaike International Airport visitors may opt for taking a taxi for a 2.5 hour trip or a shuttle bus which takes considerably longer. The most scenic way to travel is from Colombo is by train. HotelClub offers member benefits to make your stay even more enjoyable, so what are you waiting for?
