Anyone moving to kandy should consider the cultural principles the city possesses. Given the city being the last kingdom of Sri Lanka, Kandy is well-known for its cultural heritage and carries so much of value in terms of rich traditional diversity. Migrating to Kandy is a cause of concern given its cultural barriers.

Kandy is one of the great cities you can move into in Sri Lanka. Kandy literally has everything a person needs from good hospitals to the best education. Some things you should consider when moving are, houses in Kandy a little expensive and it’s difficult to find a place with all the facilities. Other than that there is no problem in moving to Kandy.

Consider learning some of the local language, Sinhala. I suggest any person moving to Kandy must be ready to put on their hiking gear and enjoy all the hiking sites the surrounding has to offer.

This city is in central province and the climate here is very nice because it’s not that much cold as well not hot. We can see greenery everywhere but we don’t have any beaches here because this is hill country. and this city has many tourist attractions also. People here are very friendly and well educated.
