In 2014, the flow of inbound tourism to Kamchatka increased by 27%
On Thursday, November 27, a meeting of the board and public advisory council of the regional agency for tourism and external relations took place. One of his main questions was the analysis of the state of the tourism industry of the Kamchatka Territory for 9 months of 2014. During this time, the peninsula was visited by 14 thousand 374 tourists (for the entire 2013 - 11 thousand 359 tourists).
“Today we can say that the number of foreign tourists who entered the territory of the Kamchatka Territory in 2014, compared to 2013, increased by 27%. The main foreign countries generating a tourist flow to Kamchatka in 2014 are the USA, Japan and Canada, ”said the head of the agency Gevorg Shkhiyan.
He noted that the increase in the flow is directly related to the active participation of the region in exhibitions. In 2015, the Kamchatka delegation plans to visit three Asian exhibitions: KOTFA (Republic of Korea), JATA (Japan) and BITE (China).
The issue of the development of social and youth tourism in the region was also actively discussed. This year 530 people took part in social tours, and 88 children from Milkovsky, Ust-Kamchatsky, Elizovsky districts, Palana and Petropavlovsk took part in the new federal project "My Russia".
Among the achievements over the past year were the creation of a visit center on the Khalaktyrsky beach, the reconstruction of the bridge in the village of Esso to the memorial complex to the soldiers, the arrangement of the Makeevsky hot spring and a parking lot in the village of Sokoch.
