Kandy Perahera/August

Hi

I will be in Kandy on 17 August. It will be the date of the Kandy 3rd Randoli Perahera festival.

I'll be staying in the hotel Amaya Hills and need information on how to go/and return from the hotel to the place of Kandy Perahera.

It is also necessary to pay a ticket or is a public event?

I appreciate any information

Take a tuk tuk from Amaya Hills to Kandy city centre.

It's a public event, but if you don't want to stand/sit on the pavement for hours before the Perahera starts it's better to buy a ticket for the stands.

I was there years ago and paid Rs.2000 to watch from the 2nd floor of a rickety building/ shop. 2nd floor gives a very good view and you are at the eye level of the tooth relic when it ultimately emerges. Try to get a place at the bend of the road to have a better view.
