The flow of tourists from the Middle Kingdom to the Amur Region for December 2014 increased by 2,5 times
Igor Gorev, Minister of Foreign Economic Relations, Tourism and Entrepreneurship of the Amur Region, explained in an interview with local media that the lower the ruble, the stronger the Chinese partners are burning their eyes from our tourist potential.
He is sure that the flow of tourists from China will not stop, only the surge that has been observed recently can stop. Another question is where he will stop. At the same time, the minister drew attention to the fact that in these conditions, the purchasing power of Chinese tourists has grown significantly.
A large wave of tourists from China is expected in February - Igor Gorev noted - this is the time for New Year's holidays in China. Plus the "shopping buzz" brings in about two thousand additional tourists. Thus, from year to year, there is a steady positive trend. This is facilitated by the implementation of the project "Construction of a cross-border cable car across the Amur River between the cities of Blagoveshchensk and Heihe".
The minister's words are confirmed by statistical data. Thus, December of this year became a record for the number of Chinese tourists visiting the Amur Region. From December 1 to December 23, 3 tourists arrived from Heihe to Blagoveshchensk, which is two and a half times more than the same period last year - 036 people. The same increase is observed throughout the year as a whole. In 1, about 097 thousand Chinese tourists visited the Amur Region, and in 2014 53 thousand.
