Kandy, Sri Lanka

Botanical Garden

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.
