Incentive Travel Destination: Niagara Falls

Both Canadians and Americans would probably argue back and forth over which country offers the better view and accommodations when visiting or viewing Niagara Falls. What is not in dispute is how truly lovely the falls are to visit and see in-person. While a scenic view from either side is likely wonderful for its own reasons, taking in Niagara Fall from Canada is especially unique and worthwhile. From Canada, not only will the sightseer get and up close and personal view of the remarkable waterfalls (Niagara is the collective name for the three waterfalls that border the United States and Canada), they will also get the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Queen Victoria Park. The park features beautiful gardens, raised platforms with spectacular views of the falls, and underground walkways that actually lead you underneath the waterfalls, providing the illusion of being inside the waterfalls.

If you want a truly magnificent, spectacular view of Niagara from Canada, take an elevator up to the observation deck of Canada’s Skylon Tower, which is the highest viewpoint of the falls and offers a view of the U.S./Canadian border and distant views of Toronto and New York City. Another fantastic feature exclusive to the Canadian side of Niagara is the Whirlpool Aero Car that actually takes passengers over the distinctive Niagara Whirlpool.

Since you might not be spending your entire day looking at Niagara’s magnificence, luckily, there is plenty to do and enjoy. The dining in Canada is nothing short of exquisite, and if you happen to be in a gambling mood, there are two casinos in proximity of the falls, one of which can be found in a luxurious resort.

Though putting together a trip to Niagara Falls, Canada, would not be the most difficult to arrange, why not wrangle an all-expenses paid trip through your company’s employee incentive program. Today, more companies are using employee motivation programs to galvanize their workers to want to reach heightened goals, and in return they receive a travel destination package through a corporate travel incentive company such as ours. Though monetary incentives are always valued, especially during a period of economic downturn, one cannot truly put a price on a relaxing vacation that provides excitement and adventure, as well as some downtime and refreshment. Our corporate travel company offers an awesome and enjoyable package to Niagara Falls, Canada.

La Digue: An Incentive Travel Destination

Some people, when planning a vacation, want to vacate themselves from the world, from the noise, from people, and especially from other tourists. To some, trendy and popular vacation destinations just do not quite cut it. Some people wish to feel secluded, as if there is a tiny little charming and beautiful place in the world that no one knows about, and when they go to that place, it feels like it is solely theirs. If the previously mentioned aspects describe your sentiments toward what a vacation should be, then traveling to La Digue in the Seychelles, one of the islands found in this republic, should be your top priority when planning your next adventure travel. However, if you are lucky enough to work for a company that offers an employee travel incentive program, perhaps you can get a travel company such as ours to book it for you, paid for by your company.

As previously mentioned, La Digue is a small island and part of the Republic of Seychelles. The island is only inhabited by two thousand people, most of whom live in the western villages. Just to get to La Digue, one has to fly and then take two separate ferry rides, so  believe us when we say this place is secluded and for those who truly wish to get away from it all. However, on the island, one can enjoy fishing, sailing, boating, snorkeling, diving, trekking, and, of course, what people most notably come here for—relaxing on the beach. For those who work in a stressful environment, a vacation that offers more rest and relaxation than it does crazy adventures might just be what the doctor ordered.

The walks and trails can offer a bit of exercise and adventure, as well as incredible scenery and a chance to see animals that cannot be found in any other place in the world. If you are lucky, you might catch a glimpse of the rare Paradise Flycatcher, which is a critically endangered species of bird. Other unique animals uncommon in other places in the world, but can be found in La Digue include giant tortoises, the coconut crab, fruit bats, and sheath-tailed bats, among others.

Why go somewhere everyone knows about, where you will feel like just another tourist crowded the area during its popular season. Instead, travel to an island most people do not know about, and simply show them the pictures you took of the beautiful beaches with white, soft sand and crystal clear ocean water, along with the photos of wondrous tropical plants and uncanny species of animals endemic to La Digue. If you get the opportunity to use the wonderful benefit of an employee travel incentive program to go to this tiny, quiet, and beautiful island, then be sure to take complete advantage, as you will not find another tropical island offering this kind of relaxation, coupled with unique experiences waiting to be had.

Koh Samui: An Incentive Travel Destination

Are you ready for “operation Koh Samui?” If you recall the popular and hilarious movie, Meet the Parents, you will remember the scene where Ben Stiller’s character “Greg” was under the impression he was blowing the cover of Robert De Niro’s character, (“Jack”) Jack’s operation. Turns out, “operation Koh Samui” was code for the beautiful, tropical destination in Thailand where Jack was paying for his youngest daughter and groom-to-be to go for their honeymoon. Although Koh Samui, Thailand was a known spot for a tropical vacation, soon after the movie it became quite a popular travel destination for tourists. Due to the island’s exorbitant increase in popularity, a travel incentives program not offering this beautiful destination as one of its prized packages would be nonsensical; this is why our company offers Koh Samui, Thailand as one of our tropical locales.

Most people have either read or heard about how great Thailand can be for a vacation spot. Now, imagine one of the most beautiful and scenic islands known in the world, and having that island located just east of the lovely country. Welcome to Koh Samui, where the beaches are absolutely gorgeous, with soft sand and crystal clear waters prevailing on any part of the island you visit. On this island, people can enjoy any type of ocean excursion imaginable, including boating, skiing, kayaking, canoeing, wind surfing, parasailing, jet skiing, or simply dipping in the water. Many of the larger resorts are considered world class, and if you are into a more subtle getaway, their bungalows and cottages are simple, yet exquisite. If you decide to embark on land excursions, one will find awesome Buddhist Temples, pretty water falls, and lovely walks through the tropical forests.   

Many people in the United States absolutely love and crave Thai food. How about trying the real thing? In Koh Samui, Thailand, you will find nothing but the best and most authentic Thai food you could ever hope to taste. After dinner, you could check out the world-renowned Thai Boxing bouts for a bit of sports entertainment.

Whatever your pleasure, this wonderful island in the Pacific is amazing, and no other tropical locations can replicate the experience you will have in the Far East culture. A travel incentives program offering Koh Samui as one of its destinations to a company should invigorate any employee who appreciates the beauty, luxury, and peace that comes with an excursion to a tropical island in the Far East. Koh Samui, Thailand, is arguable the most remarkable tropical destination in the world. Once you go, we would be astonished if you disagreed.

Isle of Man: An Incentive Travel Destination

Incentive Travel Solutions offers an incentive travel destination to a location that is truly unlike any other. Vast history, rich Nordic and Celtic cultural influence, sweeping landscapes and castles, ancient landmarks, awesome feel of an island enclosure—all can be found on the Island of Man, Europe. Even though the island only measures thirty-three miles in length and thirteen miles in width, the number of excursions, places to see, and activities to do truly “packs a wallop.” There are several festivals to enjoy on the Isle of Man, ranging from scenic walking festivals, to triathlons, as well as darts, hockey, rugby, golf, and bowling. Sounds like fun? It should, as the island is proud of its enjoyable, year-round events that bring visitors and tourists from all around the world.

The history of the island was briefly mentioned above. There lies a passage of gravesites on Meayll Hill that dates back to the Neolithic period—3500 B.C. Peel Castle, built by Norsemen for their Viking King is a remarkable sight to behold. Many other incredible examples of historic and medieval architecture can be found throughout the island, including the beautiful collection of Celtic Crosses an individual could ever imagine, Saint Patrick’s Church and the Cathedral of Saint German, and the Round Tower. The Isle of Man received a majority of its influence from Nordic and Celtic settlers, but on visiting, you will notice influence from Germanic Tribes and from other groups of European settlers.

The inclusion of the Isle of Man as a travel destination offering by incentive travel firms is most likely scarce. Luckily, our company ensures we are not lumped in with other incentive travel firms that merely offer tropical locales or large metropolises. This island, located between Ireland and the United Kingdom in the Irish Sea and within the British Isles is a guaranteed fun adventure had by all. In addition and worthy of note, other than what has been previously mentioned, are the terrific museums that will provide perspective on the rich history and cultural influences, along with the wonderful Curraghs Wildlife Park that has animals from all over the globe.

Another added bonus to visiting the island is its close proximity to Ireland, Scotland, Whales, and England. Even though we totally believe that the Isle of Man will have you complete hooked and engaged in everything it has to offer, it is great and opportunistic that several notable countries are so close, and this pleasant island lies in between them all. This is definitely an opportunity to see an area of the world that offers a look into ancient civilizations rarely duplicated anywhere else on the map.
