On the very first day in this country after your arrival at the Colombo Airport, you can visit the Pinnawala Elephant orphanage. Spend some time here and watch the wildlife in its best form. The orphanage is dedicated to take care of abandoned or injured elephants. Check into the hotel in Kandy. After relaxing for some time visit the temple of the tooth relic, traditional batik-making factory and the Gem Museum. To get a hang of local life you can also take a walk around the local market.
