Kandy, Sri Lanka is the ancient Kings' capital of the jewel shaped island. It's a historical city with many things to do and see. Located on the Kandy plateau, the air is cool and the scenery is green.
The main center of the city is the lake that is surrounded by rolling foothills. On the lake is the famous Temple of the Tooth which supposedly houses the tooth of Buddha. This temple is one of the most holy Buddhist pilgrimage points in all of Kandy.
In this video, I didn't get to go to the Temple of the Tooth, but I did climb the hill with that included the giant Buddha statue and also included fantastic views of the city!
The first place I visit in this travel video is the YMCA Soya Center which is a locally famous place to eat soy milk ice cream and a number of other treats. I couldn't help from ordering a soy roti which proved to be excellent, a true winner of a snack!
From there I ventured to Kandy Market which I thought was one of the most interesting places in the city. The people were very friendly and the produce looked fantastic. I stopped at one stall to drink a fresh King coconut, which was very refreshing!
Kandy was not my favorite city in Sri Lanka, but it is definitely worth a visit when you visit the magnificent island!
