    Take a fall with Canada’s wonders

    From the Australia News Network:

    There’s something mesmerising about the thunder of the water as it slips off the edge of the cliffs in an incessant display of nature’s power.

    Niagara Falls is far from the world’s highest waterfall, but ranks among the most famous, thanks to its sheer accessibility. It has been a must-see since the Victorian era and, when in 1901 a US vice-president’s daughter honeymooned here, Niagara also became a honeymoon destination.

    There are surely many more romantic places to take a honeymoon than Niagara, where you’re surrounded by hordes of tour groups. Indeed, Oscar Wilde once called Niagara “a bride’s second great disappointment”.

    But in every other way, these waterfalls are very impressive, with most visitors commending them as one of the highlights of a visit to eastern Canada.

    Niagara Parks discount card

    I found this card on the ground the other day. I’m not sure if they do this for a lot of tour groups (they probably do), but apparently people who use King Tour & Limousine Service can get 13% off souvenirs and meals over $20. Essentially the people are saving the taxes.

    From a Marketwire press release:

    The Honourable Rob Moore, Minister of State (Small Business and Tourism), along with Dean Allison, Member of Parliament for Niagara West–Glanbrook, today greeted officials from the China National Tourism Administration (CNTA) during their visit to Niagara Falls, Ontario.

    “I am thrilled to welcome the Chinese delegation to Canada,” said Minister of State Moore. “I am also glad to be able to show them some of what makes Canada a wonderful destination for our Chinese friends.”

    While meeting with the CNTA delegates, the Minister of State spoke about the importance of the arrival of the first official tour groups from China last week.

    “With last week’s arrival of over 350 Chinese leisure travellers, Canadian tourism has taken a step forward in terms of competing on the world stage,” noted Minister of State Moore.
