What you can expect

Immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage of Kandy and get to experience it like a true local. Visit temples, stroll through a local market, tuk-tuk your way around the city and see the authentic local lifestyle.

Kickstart your mini adventure with a stroll through the lively local market. Enjoy the great vibe and have a delicious local tasting. The Temple of the Tooth is a must-see during your visit to Kandy. The temple is visited by both locals and tourists bearing flowers and incense daily throughout the day and night.

Go off the beaten track and visit a true hidden gem: a beautiful secret temple famous for its paintings. A monk will wait for you to open the door. Be amazed by the rock inscriptions dating back to the 6th century and listen to interesting insight from your private guide.
