Discovering Kandy’s Heritage on Two Wheels

March 16, 2018 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , , , , , ,

If you are travelling to Sri Lanka, don’t miss an opportunity to visit one of the island’s most beautiful destinations: the city of Kandy in Central Province, famous for its incredible history and religious importance, as well as being a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Kandy Heritage Cycling

Take an exciting ride on your Lumala bicycle (top brand in the country) along Kandy’s streets and alleys, seeing the usual highlights and more. The architecture, beautiful gardens and hillsides adorned by golden Buddha images make Kandy a uniquely photogenic city.

990 Cycling in Sri Lanka

Our Khiri Travel Sri Lanka guides specialize in exploring deeper into the everyday lives and cultural traditions of the local people, an integral part of the city’s heritage. Indeed, a local family will show your clients around and share their knowledge and insights about the area’s past and present. To top it off, your clients will be invited to enjoy a tea or coffee—or, perhaps some wine or arrack (the local whiskey). We will stop in a secluded location to have some food, picnic style, to recharge our batteries and relax for a while.

This experience is designed to transport our valued guests to Sri Lanka back in time, enabling your clients to relive the charms of Old Ceylon. Enjoying a bicycle ride at leisure and a picnic make for memorable day. In modern times where everyone is in a constant hurry, there is nothing better than breathing in the fresh air and enjoying some easy exercise – and the arrack!
