1 day in Kandy  (5 Answers)

Hello, myself and 3 other friends will arrive in Kandy a day in March around midday. Is it best to hire a tuktuk driver for the afternoon to take us to all the places of interest? How much is the usual cost for this - say from midday - 5pm? Or do you think it is best to jump in a tuktuk after each stop? Appreciate any advice on this, and also what order is best to see the sites? Thank you!

Transportation  (2 Answers)

I am in Kandy. I want to know how much to pay for a taxi or a car in Kandy. I need contact numbers and references for good tour and transport operators in Kandy. Would it be wise to take the car to Nuwarara Elliya for sightseeing and retain the car for a night and then come back to Kandy in the same car.

Cheap accommodation in Kandy  (9 Answers)

Hi All,

I'm from Australia and looking for some budget accommodation in Kandy Sri Lanka. was going through most travel sites and narrowed down to a few. I was wondering if anyone has stayed at this place called Sedevo Chalets? They offer private bungalows and looks pretty decent. Or what other place/s would you recommend with similar setup?
Thanks
Alicia

Esala Perahera  (4 Answers)

Can anybody offer us some advice on attending the above festival. We will be staying in Beruwala from 10th August until the 24th August 2013, but fancy travelling to Kandy for the above festival and staying for one night. We would like to know what date would be the best to go, where we could stay for the night, and how to go about booking seats to watch. Also, it would be nice to know whether there are any places we could stop off at along the journey from Beruwala to Kandy. We will be travelling with our teenage son, so anywhere we stay would need to be child friendly.

Any advice would be welcome.
Thanks
Kaley and Steve

Self drive hire Kandy

Hey,

After doing (self drive) the A2 from Colombo to Matara and back, we took the train to Kandy, where we are now.

We would like to explore the central province also by self drive but we find it quite hard (read: impossible) to find a rental car. Because I'm 6'8'' a small car doesn't fit.... (However I'm not looking for a SUV in particular.)

Does somebody already rented a self drive car in Kandy? Where was the car rented? Was the car, the service and the price ok?

We are hoping for some quick responses because we are only staying here until Saterday (We would like to rent from wednesday to Saterday).

Looking forward to your feedback.

Greetings,

CG&KC

I'm looking for accommodation in or very near Kandy, and finding that only the most expensive hotels have swimming pools.

accomodation in kandy  (2 Answers)

I am a budget traveler, used to traveling in a group, but i will be travelin alone this time round and wanted to know bout cheap accomodation in Colombo. Im willing to shell out 5 to 10 dollars for a day, and by cheap i dont mean a junkyard, like maybe Im looking for a good deal here. Or do any locals offer cheap and neat accomodation. Something i can book in advance before reaching Colombo and dont get looted by agents at the airport. I have an open ticket and might travel in August or december!!

I asked a Sri Lankan VT'er the same question but unfortunely he is too busy. All replies will be really appreciated thnx in advance.
