Top things to do in Kandy for couples – Romantic Kandy!

The town of Kandy in Sri Lanka is indeed romantic. Not just because of the pleasant weather the city has, but also for its attractions, resorts, and almost everything. If you and your loved one plan to go to Kandy for a holiday, here are some things you can just try out.


Visiting the Temple of Tooth

The most famous attraction in the city of Kandy- the sacred Temple of Tooth (which is known as Sri Dalada Maligawa in Sinhalese) is a must-visit when you travel to Kandy during your holiday together. It's also a great way to start your vacations with blessings, while also exploring the proud heritage of the country. The shrine houses the relic of the tooth of Lord Buddha and if you visit Kandy in July and August, you will also get the privilege of witnessing the most vibrant procession in the world too, which starts from here.


Trying the Sri Lankan Delicacies

Why not surprise your better half with a romantic dinner at a good restaurant or a resort in Kandy? Needless to say, taste authentic Sri Lankan food with all of their spices and flavours, your sure to be pleasantly surprised! Resorts the likes of Hunas Falls Hotel Kandy also serve western dishes to their guests staying with them, but it's always ideal to try some local dishes when you are in this wonderland. Their sambal, fish curry, and the brinjal moju will take your taste buds to heaven.


Trekking and hiking

Kandy is a city surrounded by hills. So why not take the best advantage of this geographical gift? If your better half is also fond of adventure, pick a trekking trail such as Adams Peak, Knuckles, Gadaladeniya, or Alagalla Rock and have a romantic hike together. If you are into camping (and if the mountain peak you plan your hike allows camping) you can just spend some quality time under the starry night sky forgetting all your worries.


Exploring the Ceylon Tea Museum

'Ceylon Tea' is a tea brand that's loved by the whole world and of course, is the best tea out of all. When you are in Kandy, do not forget to visit the Ceylon Tea Museum surrounded by tea estates and luscious greenery. Not just looking at the process of tea making, at this museum you can also indulge in a romantic conversation with your partner while enjoying a divine cup of tea.


Walking to the Peradeniya Botanical Garden

The Peradeniya Botanical Garden is indeed a favourite spot for love birds. The surroundings are nice, pleasant, and absolutely romantic. Take a tour to this Royal Botanical Garden when you are there in Kandy with your loved one, and witness over 4000 different species of plants. Not to forget, this garden has a very rich collection of orchids that provide the perfect backgrounds for your couple picture clicked in Sri Lanka.
