On arrival transfer clients to Kandy. Afternoon do a
city tour of Kandy. Kandy was the last capital of the Sri Lankan kings,
and is a World Heritage Site. The name Kandy conjures visions of
splendour and magnificence. Many of the legends, traditions and folklore
are still lovingly kept alive. Drive around the Kandy Lake built by the
last Sinhala king Sri Wickrama Rajasinghe in 1798. Visit the Kandy town
and Bazaar, the arts & crafts centre and a gem museum and a lapidary. In
the evening visit the Temple of the Tooth Relic and thereafter witness a
cultural show featuring traditional Sri Lankan dancing. Overnight stay
at Earl's Regency Hotel or Le Kandyan Hotel, Kandy or Tree of Life
After breakfast continue the balance city tour of
Kandy including a visit to the Peradeniya Botanical Gardens. This
botanical garden was first built as a pleasure garden by a Sinhala king
and was expanded by the British. It is 147 acres in extent and provides
an amazing variety of trees, plants and flowers. Thereafter, proceed to
Kandalama enroute visit a Spice Garden in Matale, to see the different
spices, which Sri Lanka is famous for. You will be introduced to
different spices and shown how some of these spices are grown and
processed. Overnight stay at Kandalama Hotel, Kandalama or Culture Club,
After breakfast morning at leisure for optional
excursion payment direct by clients on the spot (Sigiriya or Polonnaruwa).

After breakfast proceed to Colombo enroute visit the
Elephant Orphanage at Pinnawala. This orphanage is the home for about 60
elephants, out of which some are baby elephants found, abandoned or
orphaned in the wild. They are being cared, fed and trained by the wild
life authorities. The best time to visit is during the feeding times,
when one will have the opportunity of seeing the baby elephants being
bottle-fed. Also could accompany the elephants to a river close-by and
see them having their daily bath. In the afternoon do a city tour of
Colombo. Colombo like many capital cities in developing countries is
fast changing its face. Almost overnight, skyscrapers arise from where
old buildings once stood. Yet in some parts, the Old World charm is
retained. As an example there is a 100 year old clock tower and several
British built colonial buildings. Other places of interest are the
Pettah bazaar where one can shop for bargains, the old Parliament in
Fort, a Hindu and a Buddhist temple, residential areas where you find
the stately homes of the affluent and the Bandaranaike Memorial
International Conference Hall - BMICH, an outright gift to Sri Lanka
from the People's Republic of China. Overnight stay at Trans Asia Hotel,
After breakfast proceed to the Airport in time to
connect with the flight for departure.
