Content: Boarded a flight to Colombo at 1855 hours by Fly Dubai & arrived Colombo at 0130 am. Booked fly dubai for half the price than Emirates, despite of the odd arrival time, it made sense to add a night at Hotel & have a base stay at Colombo. Fly Dubai is a no frill low cost airline.

Content: We had applied of Sri Lankan Travel permit online & got that free of cost. The stamping was done in a jiffy & we were picked up by our pre booked Vehicle which will travel along with us for the entire 7 days. Checked in Hotel OZO at Colombo & crashed since we had a early morning schedule. Ozo is a decent hotel overlooking the ocean & suffices for the purpose. The rooms were a tad small but sufficed the purpose.

Location: Kandy

Content: After a quick breakfast which was nothing beyond but functional, we checked out at 0900 hours to leave for Kandy. Our Driver Mr Anniruddha drove us to Kandy which is 5 hours from CMB. A mandatory stop at the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage & it was a life time of an experience. Spent about 2 hours & even took Elephant ride in the Jungle & the river. Highly recommend for anyone who travels with Kids or Family. Just seniors who have walking problem might find difficult to cope up.

Content: Arrived Kandy at 1500 hours & checked in to our pre booked hotel. Cinnamon Citadel is a traditional hotel, immaculately maintained, overlooking the river & colonial style architecture. The check in was smooth & we were taken to our room which was over looking the river & marginally spacious. In love with the hotel already.
