Today we visited the Peradeniya Botanical Gardens, passing the impressive Kandy Lake on the way. The views of this city are incredible and the country is so different from anywhere I have ever visited before. The monsoon rain means that everywhere is so green and lush, which makes everything very picturesque.
The Botanical Gardens were really well kept, and we spent a very relaxed afternoon strolling around the park and checking out all the different plants, trees, spices and herbs. The most incredible thing I saw were the giant bamboo trees.
The place was so calm and peaceful, a far cry from the bustling roads! Definitely worth a visit if you are in Kandy.
