Logos Hope’s First Visit To Sri Lanka
- The World’s Largest Floating Book Fair
Logos Hope, the world’s largest floating book fair, will soon visit Colombo on her maiden voyage to Sri Lanka. Logos Hope follows its sister ships Logos and Doulos which visited Sri Lanka five times between 1971 and 2006. This larger vessel allows for a wider book selection and more comfortable browsing.
The book fair on board Logos Hope offers an expanded selection of over 5,000 books at affordable prices. They cover a range of subjects including science, sports, hobbies, cookery, the arts, medicine, dictionaries, languages, and philosophy. With children’s titles, academic texts, dictionaries, atlases and more, the book fair is something the whole family can enjoy. Additionally, the rest of the fully air conditioned Visitor Experience Deck is also open for the public to explore. From the Welcome Area, which introduces the new vessel through a short movie and interactive displays, to the International Café, which has ice cream, drinks and snacks for sale, there is sure to be something for everyone.
Logos Hope will be at Bandaranaike Quay, Port of Colombo from March 19 to April 3. Opening hours are 10.00 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 2.00 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. on Sunday and Monday. Tickets cost Rs. 70, and children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Logos Hope is operated by GBA Ships e.V., an international, charitable organisation registered in Germany. In almost 40 years of service, the organisation has welcomed 40 million visitors up the gangways in over 160 countries and territories around the world.
