Visiting at least one spice garden in Sri Lanka is a must! So when you are writing down “What to do in Kandy” make sure to note a visit to a Spice Garden. The closest to Kandy and the most popular one is Ranweli Spice Garden, where you can learn about different spices and plants that are used in cooking and in Ayurveda healthcare.
IMPORTANT: There will be many spice garden employees trying to get you to go on a guided tour with them. The tour is free. However, in the end, the person will try to sell you “free” massage services, saying that the masseurs are students and love performing massages for practice. Then they will ask you to pay as much as you want, indicating that 10$ is a good price for a 15-minute massage, right there on the spot. Then the person will also try to sell you very overpriced products, like body and hair care essentials. You can easily find these products at local supermarkets, so we would not recommend spending much money at the spice gardens. Also, the person taking you for a tour will explicitly as for tips at the end of the tour.
Much love, fam!!! ❤️❤️❤️
Love you all!
