Colombo City Centre (CCC) Mall along with Ebert Silva Holidays (Private) Limited recently launched the CCC Social double-decker bus, a much-needed travel experience where CCC shoppers can discover all that Colombo has to offer on a bus tour covering some of the most iconic buildings and monuments in the city of Colombo. The best part is that this entire tour is absolutely free of charge exclusively for all CCC shoppers!
On the CCC social bus tour, one can discover the magic of Colombo and learn more about the history; live commentary will be presented by a professional tourist board-certified guide who will be part of this special tour. Travellers can learn the significance of each site along the route and witness Colombo through a new lens as the ride allows you to catch a glimpse of our rich culture and heritage through the preserved pieces of history that hide in plain sight. Thus, it is also a great educational tour, especially for children to learn more about Colombo and the history of Sri Lanka.
The CCC social bus tour will last 90 minutes and travel about 25kms, taking you on a journey around town that will change your entire perspective on Colombo City with true historical stories about the sites. The tours will be operated on Saturdays and Sundays with three tours each day timed at 11.30 am 1 pm and 2.30 pm. During the tour, there will be two stops at the Colombo Museum and the Independence Square, where passengers can choose to hop off at these two stops, explore the locations and re-join the tour on the next rounds.
Chairperson of Ebert Silva Holidays (Pvt) Ltd, Rajini de Silva Mendis stated, “It gives me immense pleasure to be a part of this unique, innovative and exciting experience, the CCC Social bus. The city of Colombo is a place where so many faiths and cultures live in harmony. The best example is just a few meters away from CCC, at the Slave Island junction. You can see a Buddhist temple, a kovil, a mosque and a church all within walking distance of each other. This richness, heritage and culture of Colombo are what the Colombo City Centre and Ebert Silva Holidays wish to showcase to all the shoppers of CCC.”
