Afterwards, return to Kandy where you'll stop off at the Royal Botanical Gardens which are filled with many exotic plants from Java figs and orchids to bamboos. When you've had enough of strolling the flower-filled grounds, head to Sri Dalada Maligawa or Temple of the Tooth Relic, an important sacred temple housing a tooth relic of Lord Buddha. End your day with an evening of music and dance, taking in the Kandyan Dance Cultural Show.
