    • Trip to Kandy

      First of all let me start with the sales agent Mr.darshana, I just gave him the no. of days I would be visiting Sri Lanka and he was amazingly quick to put together a plan for us in a couple of minutes,his choices of hotels were amazing, especially the views from the rooms. Their prices are reasonable and services are excellent. We landed on 6th august,2019 in SL and the guide(Mr.Ramesh) was waiting for us patiently with the name board,he was not difficult to find. He was courteous and polite and helped us board the vehicle and start our trip to the different destination in sri lanka. We travelled from Colombo->Kandy->Nuweraellaya->ella->Beruwala(water sports and river safari). They even plan a day trip to visit the town of Galle from beruwala. I would definitely suggest Relax Lanka Tours to anyone travelling to Sri Lanka.

      The Driver was not good all he wanted was to make commission. He was late to pick us up 2 times because of which we missed the kandy festival........ when we had to go pinnawala Elephant Orphanage he took us to the private spot where we could ride elephants but those elephants were very dirty even in Nuwara Eliya he told us to take pictues from far away and he knew nothing about the waterfall there and was so confident about the little knowledge he had but that knowledge was wrong too.............. Even on the last day when we were to depart we had to take an uber because this guy was late we were actually at the boarding gate when we got his call that he was waiting outside, terrible service by the driver..... only giving five because the hotel was good and sri lanka is a good place to visit but not with this agent

      Trip was amazing. Tour was well organized. Hotels could have provided better service at some places, like nuwara eliya. Our cab driver, Hafiz was an amazing person with great knowledge of the places and history. Thanks direct link and travel triangle for organizing a great trip. Train journey from kandy to nuwara eliya.

      We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Sri Lanka which lasted from 6th July 2019 to 18th July 2019. Everything was made super easy and accessible during the trip due to a responsible driver, AC car and good food. Sri Lanka is truly very peaceful, clean and green country with hospitable and welcoming people. For instance, we were served fresh juices everytime we checked-in in a hotel. This is indeed the best family trip of our life. Thanks to your company 'Amara Lanka Tours' :) Honestly this trip on the whole was an excellent and unforgettable memory itself! To point out, the spectacular Nine Arch Bridge was good for photography. One memorable experience in Nuwara Eliya was staying in luxurious hotels located at the peak of cloudy mountains with waterfall gushing in front and dark-green gardens beneath us. We enjoyed the elephant ride at the Elephant Orphanage in Sirigiya. Moreover, the train ride from Nuwara Eliya to Ella became an unforgettable experience because of a wonderful scenery we enjoyed from a great height with cold winds splashing our faces. We had a great shopping experience in Colombo in stores like Kandy Uptown and Glitz. Furthermore, watching tea production encouraged us to buy their good-quality teas for our family and friends. Handeling delicate and small turtles was fun along with watching 75 years old turtles at a turtle hatchery. Undoubtedly Sri Lanka is rich in natural beauty and deserves more and more tourists.

      Trip was all good.. We enjoyed Sri Lanka.. But i guess travel agent should be listening us promptly and solving our query asap.. As hotels at few places were not upto mark and we complained him too but there was no positive reply from his side! Best memories were made in kandy trincomale and nuwara ellya We simply loved local Sri Lankan cuisine! And the best part was we covered all the seasons in 1 season! Beautiful place!

      Travel triangle just about did everything right in facilitating our 6 day visit to Srilanka. Udani traels,Sri Lanka were efficient and always available for any assistance.The hotels they booked at both in Kandy as well as Bentota turned out to be excellent. All together a very enjoyabel experience. The hotel stay at Grand Kandian,Kandy,as well as Earl Reef Bentota were excellent choices,and credit to Udani holidays for choosing the best of hotels. The travel guide maduranga proved to be very versatile and knew just about everything ,including places to dine. The beaches of Bentota,as well as sea food cuisine in the sea resorts are at par with the best in the world.

    There are a few things that only Sri Lanka can offer and the rest of the world can simply just watch and buy. Some of these unique things are Ayurvedic medicine, authentic Sri Lankan souvenirs, refreshing tea leaves and traditional handloom made products.

    Some Indians migrated to Sri Lanka and are mostly referred to as ‘Indian Tamils’ and they form the minority of the country. However, the Sinhalese form the major population of the country and are not mostly of Indian origin.

    Kandy City is a safe place and you can take part in its lively nightlife that tourists are encouraged usually enjoy. There have been no records of criminal violence against tourists for the longest time.

    Kandy City has a plethora of tourist spots specially dedicated to national parks. So, there are numerous places where you can see the majestic elephants. Some of these national parks are the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage and Udawalawe sanctuary.
