Just posted this question on an older thread, so thought I would try here. Please could anyone give me some tips about watching the perehera. I will be there for one night only on the 30th July. I gather this will be during the Kumbala perehera(not sure what that is). Are there parades every night? What sort of time should I get there? Any tips on where to try and stand? Are there any hotel bars/restaurants with balconies where I could stand if I am not actually a booked in guest? Any advice please!
