Corporate incentive Travel Destinations with the Wow-Factor
Here are some of the current most exciting incentive travel destinations in the world:
The island of Mauritius, located 2,000 km southeast off the coast of Africa is a dreamy year-round destination. The prime time to visit is usually during the local summer, spanning from November through April, although even in the remaining months the temperature rarely drops below 20 degrees. Mauritius is known for its vast golden beaches, world class diving sites and jaw-dropping nature. While there, make sure to treat your employees to a day out on the sea accompanied by some big game fishing or visit one of the local rum distilleries. The Vallée des Couleurs Nature Park is also a must-visit, whether you choose to do a buggy experience or fly through the tree tops as part of a zip-line tour.
Hotel Tip: Le Meridien Ile Maurice offers the ultimate luxury hideaway for this activity-filled corporate incentive trip.
Vancouver is a gem of the Canadian Pacific Coast. While it might not strike you as a typical incentive travel destination, the city, surrounded by breath-taking nature, offers the opportunities of a dynamic metropole with the activities of the countryside. It is the perfect spot for a trip that looks to combine work with fun. The city’s famous VanDusen Botanical Garden, for instance, provides great spaces for meetings and receptions to host your off-site events, while a sunset dinner cruise in the Vancouver harbour is bound to create the relaxed atmosphere of a destination getaway. Float plane sightseeing tours of the city and nearby mountain lakes are also an amazing way to break the corporate routine!
Hotel Tip: You will be right at the centre of the action when staying at the Fairmont Hotel in Downtown Vancouver.
Vietnam has been rising in popularity as an incentive travel destination in recent years. The country boasts an unrivalled natural landscape holding seven UNESCO World Heritage titles, lending itself to groups looking to escape the big city rut. Give your corporate trip a twist by hiring a boat to take you and your colleagues on a tour of the beautiful Halong Bay or discover the marvels of the Tam Coc Rice Fields. You can also dedicated a few days of your trip to take in the historic sights of Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, or visit the French colonial port of Da Nang.
Hotel Tip: The Paradise Luxury junk boat featuring 17 cabins and an on-board spa is the ultimate way to enjoy the Halong Bay.
Singapore is a great meeting point for teams traveling from Europe, Asia and Australia. A vibrant hub for businesses and cultures, the city offers unique experiences for incentive travel trips. From street food tasting tours to exploring the SuperTree Grove, the roster is truly rich. For instance, you can kick off your trip with a sunset welcome cocktail at the VUE Bar, followed by the fine dining experience of the Chef’s Tasting Menu or enjoy an afternoon tea at the Portman’s Bar in the Parkroyal Collection Marina as a sure way to cool down after a long day of meetings! You may also want to consider planning your trip to coincide with one of Singapore’s major festive periods, including the Chinese New Year or the Hindu Deepavali Festival of Lights to truly immerse yourself in the city’s rich cultural scene.
Hotel Tip: Located near the historic Chinatown, the Clan Hotel Singapore combines modern luxury with a rich cultural heritage.
South Africa promises a great array of incentive travel activities. Start your trip off in Cape Town with a tour of the historic sites, followed by drinks at the top of the Table Mountain cableway. For dinner, head to the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa where you can enjoy a great culinary experience accompanied by stunning views of the city from the rooftop terrace. While in Cape Town, definitely don’t miss out on a wine tasting excursion to the nearby Cape Winelands. Finally, allocate a couple days of your trip to a safari experience! Take a direct flight from CT to the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA) in the country’s North-Eastern region and travel on by road or short-haul local flights to one of the local game reserves. There is nothing quite like the wilderness of the savannah.
