A beautiful place for a stroll around . Also Joy rides at the lake are available for the cost of about 2000/- rp per person for few minutes but its worth it.

You can get a boat ride (very small and crowded) across and around the lake. It has a beautiful Island in the centre but you cant get out of boat to visit. Trip takes about 45 mins and is a nice change to see all from the water. WARNING. SMOKING IS NOT PERMITTED IN PUBLIC IN KANDY! Strange regulation!! Foreigners are not fined but will be told by police to put it out. However this does not apply to other parts of Sri Lanka.

It was absolutely lovely to watch how evening was setting on the lake, filling it with beautiful colors. No better evening in Kandy than sitting on the bench, watching birds resting on the tree branches and a little island with palm trees merging into the sunset:)

The lake is indeed worth walking around and is very surprisingly calming despite being located in the town centre. Whilst the lake in Hanoi is great, this one beats it hands down.

We had a short stroll before Kandyan dance show around the lake and to the vantage points at the Royal Palace Park. Beautiful views, peaceful atmosphere.
