Is there anything to see i Kandy, if you don’t want to go to the Temple of Tooth or watch Kandyan Dancing at the Culture Center and part with thousands of rupees? The answer is yes!

We had a hard time finding any guide to Kandy, Sri Lanka that didn’t just mention the Temple of the Tooth, Kandyan Dancing and the Botanical Gardens, so we decided to challenge ourselves to find another side of Kandy and explore Kandy on a budget.
And it worked. In fact, it worked so well that we had to cut a place (The Central Market) from the video that was way too long. So yes, you can definitely explore Kandy on a budget.

We hadn’t heard a lot of great things about Kandy, but we were positively surprised. Our favourite Kandy spots were The British Garrison Cemetery (and our awesome guide!) and the Masala Dosas at Balaji Dosai in the center of Kandy. They were so freaking good! Definitely do yourselves a favour and try one (or three) if you ever stop by Kandy on your way to Ella or Nuwara Eliya.

Hi there! I’m Anne-Li – Danish girl, globetrotter, travel vlogger, blogger and digital nomad traveling the world with my partner in crime and long-term boyfriend Mathias. Spending a month in Budapest every summer taught us that traveling does not have to be expensive and that slow travel is the way to go – for us. We have been traveling full-time since September 2016, and we usually base ourselves in one place for at least a month or two. This way of traveling is not only budget friendly – it also means that we can take our time and really explore and enjoy the place we’re in. We eat local food, shop at local markets, meet local people and enjoy experiencing different cultures – all the while seeking out the best wifi and exploring everything there is to explore. Everyday is another adventure, and we’d love for you to be part of it!

Let’s go!
