Customized travel experiences in Chile

Have you ever wanted to explore another part of the world from the eyes of a native having the advantages of knowing all the great spots on and off the beaten path, but with special itineraries that meet your interests and timeline of travel?


For trips to Chile, chilenativo.travel is the answer for customized travels and experiences with emphasis on personalized, guided tours to Patagonia. Chile Nativo Travel is an expedition/excursion operator with an intimate family of staff that is both native and expert in the Patagonian region of Chile. The team deeply enjoys sharing the Chilean culture and traditions with its travelers, as well as educating all about the overwhelming array of nature provided by the region.


The key to this difference is the guide. With Chile Nativo Travel, each guide is a respectful teacher of the surroundings with special focus on the community, preservation of natural resources, and paying attention to every detail to make the journey truly an experience, not just a trip.


Founded in 2000, Chile Nativo Travel has relied almost exclusively on the Internet for the majority of its sales. Chile Nativo Travel launched its new website and decided to move its domain to .travel.
“We adopted our .travel address to reach travelers from outside of South America. .Travel gives security to overseas clients that we are an authenticated travel provider in Chile,” stated one of the original co-founders of Chile Nativo, “Also, we believe that the future trend of the Internet and search will be moving to domain names like .travel."


On the www.chilenativo.travel website you can find all the information you need to organize your trip along with testimonies from all corners of the globe. Included on www.chilenativo.travel are rave reviews that speak of amazing experiences, both educational and social, where various travelers comment on the additional attention to detail provided by the guides from the first leg of the trip to the very finale.


In addition to organizing trips to Patagonia, Chile Nativo Travel can arrange excursions to other extraordinary locations: Northern Chile and the lunar-like landscapes of the driest desert in the world, San Pedro de Atacama, rich with archeology and an active travelers dream, world-class wine tastings in the fertile central valley of Chile, and coastal tours visiting beautiful ViƱa del Mar and the historic port of Valparaiso.

Sri Lanka benefits from using .travel

The Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau is witnessing the benefits of using the .travel domain name with www.srilanka.travel . Since its launch seven years ago, the srilanka.travel site has received over millions of page views, with many unique, first-time visitors.


Kicking its promotional efforts into full gear with www.srilanka.travel , the country joined many other popular tourist destinations and organizations in using .travel for its website and emails.


“When we were developing our website initially, we decided to use the .travel domain because it was globally accepted,” said the then Managing Director of the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau.
In fact, the Sri Lanka Tourism website was revamped with a new look and feel in line with a new brand strategy launching that same year.


To plan your dream holiday in Sri Lanka, explore wildlife, and experience an island of small miracles, visit www.srilanka.travel .

Tour company in The Netherlands opts for .travel website

When Elisabeth, of Elisabeth's Tailor Made Tours & Promotions in The Netherlands, was to set up her website, she didn't have to think too long to decide that a domain with a .travel extension was the way to go. Having a website with “.travel” in its name would provide her with instant brand recognition.


Said owner, Elisabeth, about why she chose the .travel domain for her website, “I was advised to do so, and I did not have to think about it twice because my business is all about TRAVEL.”


Elisabeth’s Tailor Made Tours offers personalized, guided tours and events relating to culture, art, history, architecture, (vintage) design & fashion, nature & gardens, science, and interesting sights in combination with sporting activities like for instance guided walks and bike tours in Amsterdam and The Netherlands in all their beauty across the shifting seasons in one or more days.


Apart from cultural and educational customized guided tours, Elisabeth’s tour company also offers art workshops in which active participation is an important aspect. Some tours even include visits of ateliers of well-known artists.

Yucatan elevating its travel beauties to new levels

The Yucatan is a magical land where the past becomes the present every day. With its roots on display at Chichen Itza, Uxmal, or Ek Balam, the Mayan culture is a component of the Yucatan’s culture. With fascinating gastronomy mixing its heritage of Mayan recipes with Creole influences, the culinary exploration of its rich history is a fun way to entice your palate and brush up on your history knowledge, too.


Fusing many of the ultimately unique components of the Yucatan into its promotional efforts has been done with Yucatan.travel. Formerly marketed under a .com address, the Yucatan government adopted .travel to elevate the exposure of its beauties to the end consumer. Knowing that travelers are looking for more specified information, the Yucatan government aligned its sales and branding goals in its new website.


After its launch, www.Yucatan.travel received a 20 percent increase in traffic to its website. “We adopted .travel because we know that today, travelers are searching on the web for specialized information,” stated Saul M. Ancona Salazar, State Secretary of Tourism Promotion. “With our Yucatan.travel site, we are seeing increasing numbers of site visits.”


With the goal of promoting, encouraging, and stimulating tourism to the Yucatan, the Yucatan Tourist Board is using .travel in all of its printed and electronic publicity.


Come lose yourself among the archaeological, marine, and culinary wonders of the Yucatan. Plan your visit at www.Yucatan.travel .

Sweet Home Alabama calls .travel home

One of the many faces in .travel is www.Alabama.travel . Alabama, known as “Sweet Home Alabama,” is one of the most beautiful areas in the Southern United States. With over 4.6 million people calling it home, Alabama is among the nation’s leaders in aerospace, education, and healthcare.


The Alabama Bureau of Tourism and Travel decided in 2007 to begin the process of switching from other top level domains to .travel, because the chance to get in early with a more respected top level domain was too good to pass up. According to Luckie & Company, “We honestly had some reservations at first about how consumers might react to a new domain. But early testing on keyword ads and other studies showed that people seemed to respond extremely well to a .travel address.”


Alabama reiterates their dedication to .travel by using .travel on all of their marketing and promotion materials, including, email, TV commercials, web banners, trade shows, and brochures. When asked about .travel’s credibility, Luckie & Company stated, “If the .travel registrars continue managing the assignment of names responsibly, it will pay off in the long-term by adding an extra level of credibility to .travel sites.”


There is no doubt that www.Alabama.travel will continue their growth and expansion of tourism through .travel. If you are interested in learning more about this great state, please visit, www.alabama.travel.

SPA Cenvaree harnesses the dreamy benefits of jasmine

BANGKOK, Thailand - Summer is in full swing and there is no better time than now to relax and take advantage of lazy days. At SPA Cenvaree, we understand the importance of the balance between work and life and part of that balance includes the rejuvenation of mind, body and spirit through healing and nurturing treatments. As part of our celebration of the wonderful days of summer, we invite you to indulge yourself with a delectable “Oriental Jasmine” treatment, designed to enchant the senses with the intoxicatingly sweet and invigorating aroma of jasmine.



Jasmine is a fascinating plant as the flowering takes place in summer and/or spring and the height of the fragrance of the jasmine is at night after the sun has set. The flower buds are also more fragrant than the flowers. We have chosen to highlight this lovely ingredient in our summer treatment because of the quality benefits that jasmine can offer such as the essential oil extracted from the flower has calming qualities that assist in relaxation.

Featuring potent local plant essences, this specially-created 2-hour treatment begins with a “foot cleansing ritual” to set the stage for the relaxing interlude to follow. A jasmine-scented salt body scrub procedure will be performed, then a jasmine-infused body mask and wrap, made with Burmese thanaka and Thai white Clay, mixed with aloe vera extract, rice powder and jasmine essential oil, ideal for softening skin, and leaving it smooth and refreshed.

After a shower, a 15-minute aromatic “Oriental” oil scalp massage will follow, along with a jasmine tea and a traditional Thai dessert. Then each guest gets to take home a gift – the SPA Cenvaree’s own exclusive “White Jasmine” gift-set that includes shower gel and body lotion.

Tara Hanrahan, Group Director of Spa at Centara Hotels & Resorts, points out that “jasmine oil contains active anti-microbial substances such as benzoic acid and benzyl benzoate, making it a potent germicide, and it’s also been known to have a positive effect on the respiratory system, as well as fade scars and skin hyper-pigmentation.”

This aromatic and therapeutic package will be available at SPA Cenvaree until August 31, 2016, and is priced at THB 2,950++ per person (saving up to 25%) or THB 5,400++ per couple (saving up to 30%) and includes one complementary spa gift set. For spa reservations, please visit our website.

SPA Cenvaree is a leading luxury spa brand, operated by Centara Hotels & Resorts, with over 30 spas in Thailand and overseas destinations in Indonesia, Maldives, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. Through traditional Thai therapies, the guiding philosophy of each spa is to take guests through a journey that enhances the balance of body, mind and soul.

The City of Brotherly Love is having its own love affair

Seven years ago, the Philadelphia Visitors and Convention Center commented on establishing their .travel domain. “We wanted a web site domain name that would set us apart as a great resource for conventions and visitors. We thought using .travel would have an ‘official travel organization’ feel to it that you don’t get from a .com or .org,” said Danielle Cohn, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for PhiladelphiaUSA.travel on why they decided go with a .travel domain.


The Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau, known on the web as PhiladelphiaUSA.travel, is a private, nonprofit membership corporation and is the official tourism promotion agency for the city of Philadelphia globally and the primary sales and marketing agency for the Pennsylvania Convention Center.


Cohn explained that the mission of the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB) is to generate economic impact and job growth by increasing the region’s hotel occupancy and revenues, while concurrently affecting other diverse segments of the hospitality industry. The bureau will do whatever it takes to attract ethnically diverse regional, national, and international convention and tourism customers through creative sales, marketing, and communications efforts.


The Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau is the official tourism promotion agency for the city of Philadelphia globally and the primary sales and marketing agency for the Pennsylvania Convention Center. It is an economic engine for the city, creating jobs and fueling the economy by bringing meetings, conventions, and travelers to Philadelphia. The PHLCVB advocates for Philadelphia and the region’s continuous transformation of infrastructure, growth of human capital, and brand asset management. It serves as a connector for meeting planners, conference attendees, tour operators, travelers, and its members by orchestrating a symphony of resources to create great expectations.


The PHLCVB offers services in the areas of convention sales and services; marketing and communications; membership; tourism; finance and administration; multicultural affairs; sports events; and the raising the visibility of the tri-state region (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware) as a world-class destination for life-sciences meetings, conventions, and business.


The Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau loves its city and is passionate about its clients and visitors, seeing itself as an ambassador for the city.
