PUBLISHED August 08, 2018

Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority (SLTDA) in association with Galle Face Hotel has launched a tourist-friendly tuk-tuk service at the Galle Face Green in Colombo under the patronage of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

The Galle Face Hotel advocated the program in keeping with their mission to preserve the heritage and history of both the hotel and it's island home as Sri Lanka is known for its hospitality. 

The hotel hosted the Prime Minister, distinguished guests and tuk-tuk drivers at the Chequerboard. The guests were entertained by a band of bagpipers and later escorted out to the tuk-tuks prior to the beginning of the ceremony at the Galle Face Green.

The tourist-friendly logo is a pride mark to distinguish high-quality tourism-related service providers in Sri Lanka. Tuk-tuk drivers who have successfully completed the training program ceremonially received the logo and their certificates from the Prime Minister at the event.
