Wir waren ca. 16 Stunden unterwegs und haben uns sehr maximal 4 Stunden etwas angesehen. Von Bentota aus st dieser Ausflug recht anstrengend. Im botanischer hatten wir eine Stunde Zeit. Das ist ein bisschen wenig Zeit aber so schön war er auch nicht. Besser soll der botanische Garten in Kandy sein. Auch der Besuch in der Teefabrik ist überflüssig. Es wird einem zwar ein bisschen über die unterschiedlichen Teesorten und ihre Herstellung erzählt. Am Ende wollen sie aber nur Tee verkaufen. Eine kleine Wanderung durch die Teefelder hätte mir besser gefallen. Was sich auf jeden Fall lohnt, sind die Impressionen im Hochland. Das ist wirklich schön.
