Celebrate International Day for Monuments and Sites on April 18 with Collette
To celebrate International Day for Monuments and Sites on April 18, Collette is launching its Special Collections brochure which offers Australian travellers the chance to visit some of the world’s most iconic monuments and sites.
Available from 24 April, the Special Collections brochure features a range of exciting itineraries and destinations steeped in history and heritage, where travellers can appreciate both natural and manmade landmarks.
As one of the world’s leading global tour operators, Collette recognises the importance of these monuments and the role they play in enriching tourism itineraries all around the world. Monuments and sites not only serve as exciting bucket-list items, but also serve to tell a story about the history, culture and traditions of a destination.
These tours offer visitors the opportunity to admire some of the most well-known and aesthetically appealing monuments open to the public as well as lesser known monuments which may well become key attractions in the future.
From traditional sites such as the Pyramids of Egypt and the majestic Taj Mahal, to the more recent Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai which stretches four hundred and sixty- eight metres into the sky, to the sumptuous Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Dubai and the striking Monument to the Discoveries in Lisbon, there is much to celebrate.
“Visits to monuments and sites are an invaluable and quintessential component of the tourism experience,” said Alison Mead, Collette Australia General Manager. “Tourism is an indispensable source of revenue and employment for so many countries. Of course monuments are major attractions and the catalyst for many travellers. At Collette we are striving to create more immersive ways to experience those monuments – such as having an included dining experience actually in the Eiffel tower.”
For nature lovers, Collette’s Winter in Yellowstone offers an abundance of exotic wildlife and geothermal encounters, including the renowned Old Faithful Geyser, one of the world’s most sought-after natural hot-spots. Travellers can unlock the mysteries of the Incan citadel in Collette’s Macchu Picchu and the Galapagos, walk in the footsteps of traditional royalty in the Imperial Palace of Tokyo or marvel at monumental magnitude in Canyon Country.
Collette’s Special Collections brochure features an array of monuments and sites which opens up a world of discovery for travellers.
