Everything comes with ALOT of tax that will mysteriously appear on your bill. And if you googled, No wonder Niagara Falls is also named as a place of a tourist trap.
There is Tourism Infrastructure Funding Fee (TIFF), it is actually voluntary but they won’t tell you that. There’s this HST tax (Harmonized sales tax) which they may call it a tourism improvement fee (TIF). Some attractions and hotels charge Attractions and Promotions Fee (APF), Niagara Destination Fee (NFDF) or Destination Productivity Fee (DPF).
Lost already? Yes I felt the same way and i felt bizarre how come our bills keep having these ridiculous taxes.
Seriously, something needs to be done before all these stupid taxes stain the image of Niagara Falls and deter tourists from going and becoming these taxes’ victims.
On the first day we touched down, we tried to recover from our jet lag. So before we concussed, we decided to take a walk to explore the area.
We braved through the cold weather and enjoyed the lovely view
Food-wise, we had dinner at Marriott restaurant because we can’t brave the cold to go anywhere else. And the price of the food is pretty standard. It will cost approximately CAD30 per pax after all the taxes and tips.
Hummus and pita is the best combi ever.
Lunch was at Apple Bees in which we shared fish and chips and the portion was just HUGE.
Thats’ a wrap for our 3D2N stay at Niagara Falls. Stay tuned to our next adventure – Washington DC
