Kandy Travel Guide

Kandy is one of Sri Lanka’s prettiest cities. Situated 115 km inland from Colombo, Kandy lies in the hills and is known not just for its scenic beauty but also for its historical and cultural significance. For a long time, Kandy was the capital of Sri Lanka and had withstood the onslaught of the Portuguese and Dutch colonisers.

Kandy is a romantic city any time of the year, but in August, this ancient capital becomes the venue of one of the most legendary festivals in Asia, the Festival of the August Moon when thousands of people from all parts of the country and from foreign countries throng to the Hill Capital to witness the magnificent spectacle.
