27 Examples of Upscale Tourism

From Hi-Tech Interactive Hotels to Million Dollar Safari Adventures

— May 24, 2014 — Eco
Upscale tourism might not be something the average person indulges in, but it is something that they do dream of. Granted, million dollar safari adventures and luxurious year-long vacations are not meant to target Joe Shmoe and the rest of his family. Yet upscale tourism is becoming much more diverse, allowing people to achieve such levels of luxury in their own way.

Whether that means booking a hi-tech hotel room or finding escape and serenity at a leisurely spa, these examples of upscale tourism has people covered. The idea of luxury continues to evolve, incorporating a number of activities and accommodations that speak to the individual rather than society. More often than not, upscale is synonymous with adventure as intergalactic Tourism Concepts show.
