Kandy is widely regarded as the cultural capital of Sri Lanka and is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The best way to get to Kandy from Colombo is the intercity express trains. These trains are free from any hassles and offer a scenic view.

The first class of this train is wonderful and a prior reservation is compulsory. The fare from Colombo to Kandy is 220 LKR in second class. The most expensive way to get there is by a taxi which you can find outside the arrival hall of the international airport.

The journey will take around 3 hrs but will cost around R6000/-. For getting around in the city you can avail of the three-wheelers which are very cheap and runs all night long. Foreigners usually explore the city by walking as the center is not exactly huge. This the best way to see the temples, shops, the shopping area and the lake area.
