LOCATION
CIIT 2006 is being held on the island of St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. One of a group of islands that comprises the US Virgin Islands, St. Thomas is legendary for its breathtaking natural beauty and the warm hospitality of its people. The pristine white beaches and clear blue waters of the Caribbean Sea combine with an average November temperature of 27.5°C (81.5°F) to make St. Thomas a vacation paradise. The heart-shaped Magens Bay Beach, with its spectacular mountain backdrop, is touted by National Geographic as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Charter a boat to go scuba diving or deep-sea fishing, or check out the stunning views from the Paradise Point Tramway and Drake’s Seat, where Sir Francis Drake kept watch on his fleet during the 16th century. At MountainTop, 450 metres about sea level, enjoy festive shopping and the breathtaking panorama of the US and British Virgin Islands. The capital city of Charlotte Amalie is a picturesque harbour and the most visited port in the Caribbean. Experience the superb dining and exquisite nightlife. Abundant duty-free shopping makes it the shopping mecca of the region.
