Thailand: the Incentive Destination...

August 2011


Thailand is an incentive destination which both impresses planners and inspires achievers. Thailand has all the ingredients of a successful program, from convenient accessibility, fully developed infrastructure, world class quality facilities, exotic attractions, attentive services and, most uniquely, friendly and hospitable people admired the world over, so much so that Thailand is called “The Land of Smiles”.   

As a country, Thailand offers a variety of destinations for two or three stop programs which will create experiences that trip participants will cherish long after. Programs to Thailand have proven to generate higher participation, assure achievement of objectives and provide long lasting inspiration.

An ideal itinerary features metropolitan Bangkok, the mountainous and enchanting north and a final portion at a beach paradise. Below is an example to tempt and tantalize;

This day can feature a team bonding activity in various parts of the city and experiencing indigenous attributes, or a full day trip to the floating market with biking through plantations, the River Kwai valley or the ancient city of Ayutthaya, a World Heritage site.
