The best start for a city tour is most obviously a short Tuk Tuk ride up to the big white Buddha temple in order to enjoy a great view over the impressive Kandy town valley.
Overlooking the heart of Sri Lanka`s second biggest city is likely to trigger a first special affinity for Kandy with around 100.000 citizens.
Up at the big white Buddha temple a small donation to the monks usually earn visitors a friendly prayer and a thin white ribbon for wearing it around a wrist to ensure good luck during the stay in Sri Lanka.
So, welcome to sacred Kandy ...
On such a sunny day the view on the green Kandy valley can be absolutely stunning.
One Kandy Dance venue is right next to the lake and the bigger one where this video was taken is a bit more up on the hill with a famous gambling venue right next door.
The Kandy citizens are enjoying to look up at one of the finest Buddha statues in Sri Lanka each and every day from all around town.
