From The Royal botanical gardens, Peradeniya, Kandy.
Few upcoming posts will be from the people in the Royal botanical gardens in Peradeniya, a 20 min bus ride from Kandy (on the Kandy Colombo road.). you can catch a bus back to Colombo, even AC buses, from here , if you’re returning to base. Read more about it here . The huge garden complex is a pleasant walk around on a sunny day and a haven for lovers and filled with school children from all over Srilanka. Do plan a stop here despite the inordinate entrance fee (1100 Srilankan rupee for foreigners). It is meticulously maintained and gives you your money’s worth.
