      Stop At: Geragama Tea Factory, Geragama Estate Rd, Pilimathalawa, Sri Lanka

      Sri Lanka and its tea plantations go hand in hand. In the central province of Sri Lanka stands Giragama Tea Plantation, a quaint village known for tea cultivation. Giragama was one of the first few plantations near Kandy, the heart of Sri Lanka. The estate spreads across many hectares; when you stand on one end, it appears as if Giragama Tea Plantation knows no bounds. They have estates that are open to tourists for walks; tea manufacturing units that showcase the entire process from how to pluck tea leaves, cleaning and further processing into the finished product; and in-house shops that sell freshly packaged tea in different variants.

      Stop At: Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, Sri Dalada Veediya, Kandy 20000 Sri Lanka

      The Temple of the Tooth is one of the most sacred Buddhist sites in the world, and the most visited in Sri Lanka. Sitting within the royal palace complex of the former Kingdom of Kandy, the temple holds the tooth relic of Buddha, which was smuggled from India in the IVth Century CE. The Tooth Relic has played an important role in local politics since ancient times because it is believed that whoever holds the relic holds the governance of the country. The Tooth Relic is enshrined in no less than 7 golden caskets. The shrine opens briefly at certain times of the day, so you may catch a glimpse of it.

      Stop At: Bahiravokanda Vihara Buddha Statue, Bahirawa Kanda Rd, Kandy 20000 Sri Lanka

      The Sri Maha Bodhi Viharaya at Bahirawakanda is a very attractive and hilly place close to Kandy Town. Many tourists are attracted by the giant Buddha statue, which is built with people’s generous donations. Founded by Ven. Ampitiye Dammarama Thero, the monastery was started in 1972. There is a Buddhist temple located alongside the Buddha statue in the Bahirawa Kanda hill. The hill provides panoramic views of the Kandy city including the mountain range nearby and the Bogambara prison. Devotees can worship in the temple.

      Stop At: Kandy Lake Club - Cultural Dance Show, 7 Sangamitta Mawatha, Kandy 20000 Sri Lanka

      Inbred with art and culture from the ancient Kandyan kingdom, Kandy plays an integral part of the country’s cultural identity with Kandyan dancing taking center stage as the National dance of Sri Lanka. Adorned with jiggling anklets, intricate beads, jingling bangles, elaborate headgear and vibrant colorful flowing costumes, the dancers perform spectacular acrobatic movements. Kandyan Dancing lives on as an extraordinary feature of Sri Lanka’s culture gaining recognition as the National dance of Sri Lanka while drummers walk beside them pounding out heart-thumping tribal rhythmic beats. Although the Kandyan dance was originally initiated for men, women today perform it with such pomp and pageantry for they have created their own style of costume and moves. Kandyan dancing flourished from spreading beyond Kandy for which it was named and has generated many dance schools throughout the island and overseas.
