Seychelles $100 gift to the world: Two weeks luxury Seychelles vacation

Since 1980, the United Nations World Tourism Organization has celebrated World Tourism Day as international observances on September 27. This date was chosen as on that day in 1970, the Statutes of the UNWTO were adopted. The adoption of these Statutes is considered a milestone in global tourism.

Good wishes are exchanged around the globe. A tiny country with a huge tourism industry has a special approach this World Tourism Day. It started with an idea over a glass of wine at the Treasure Cove Hotel in Seychelles.

The idea came from Marie France MacGregor, owner of this small luxury family-owned resort.

For $100.00 visitors or future visitors can enter a lottery and the possibility to award them with a luxury vacation no one will ever forget. Starting with first-class round trip air from anywhere on the globe, staying in the best suite in some of the best luxury resorts, a private yacht takes winners on a cruise, helicopter transportation, all the gourmet food you can eat and much more. Even if you don’t win one of the luxury vacations, your $100 investment can be used for a down payment on a future Seychelles holiday.

World Tourism Day is the day this unique opportunity started. It’s the first of its kind, and it’s a gift to the world by Seychelles. More on
