Full description
Your tour begins as you are picked up from your hotel at 1:30PM for an unforgettable afternoon in the city of Kandy. You will first visit the Peradeniya Botanical Garden, which is renowned for bundles of varieties of plants including orchids, spices, medicinal plants, and palm trees. At 4:00PM you will enjoy an upper lake drive, also enjoying the birds-eye view of Kandy before proceeding to a Kandyan cultural center. It is at this cultural center that you will enjoy a memorable cultural show, which starts at 4:30PM. At 6:00PM you will visit the Kandy Temple where you will attend the Pooja Ceremony. Offerings of flowers will be laid before the sacred tooth’s chamber, prayers will fill the room, and drummers will fill the air with rhythmic song. People will also line up for the chance to catch a glimpse of the golden case up close. Following this spiritual experience, you will be returned to your hotel at which point your tour will end.

Die Tour ist nicht empfehlenswert und wurde nicht gemäss dem Beschrieb durchgeführt. Wir haben keine Fahrt auf dem oberen See gemacht, sondern wurden bei einem Schmuckhändler und bei einem Spice Garden abgeladen, obwohl wir nichts kaufen wollten. Der Schmuckhändler hat uns fast dazu gedrängt, etwas zu kaufen. Der traditionelle Tanz war eine reine Touristenabfertigung, dauerte eine Stunde und fand in einem grossen (nicht schön eingerichtetem Saal) statt. Der Guide hat uns fast nichts erzählt und hat uns einfach Antworten auf unsere Fragen gegeben.
