In Primorye, the flow of foreign tourists increased by 17% for six months

The flow of foreign guests visiting Primorye increased by 17% in six months. Most of all, citizens of China and the Republic of Korea, as well as guests from the Philippines, come to the region. The law "On Tourism and Tourist Activities", adopted by the deputies of the Legislative Assembly of the PC, and the attractive tax conditions created in Primorye help the development of the tourism industry, the press service of the Legislative Assembly of the Primorsky Territory told RIA PrimaMedia.

In the first half of 2014, according to the information of the relevant department, the flow of foreign guests visiting Primorye increased by 17%. This is almost 40 thousand people more than the same period last year. And in just six months, thousands of foreigners visited the region for 195,4. The main part - citizens of China (130 thousand people), guests from the Philippines (17 thousand people), citizens of the Republic of Korea (14 thousand people).

At the same time, Primorye is developing domestic tourism. A list of 26 brand places of Primorye has been formed, approved by the participants of the public expert council on tourism development. On the website of the administration of Primorsky Krai, every resident can tell which objects he personally recommends visiting. A Tourist Information Center, established on the instructions of Russian President Vladimir Putin, will start working in September in Primorye to help tourists.

A survey of tourists shows that in the near future the greatest interest will be enjoyed by the Russky Island, the integrated entertainment area in Muravyina Bay, the Primorskoye Ring sports and technical complex, the Vladivostok Fortress, the Emerald Valley Landscape and Historical Park in Ussuriisk, Kravtsovskie Waterfalls, the "Land of the Leopard", Mount Pidan and others.

The development of related infrastructure at these facilities requires private investment, and the regional authorities intend to provide municipalities with maximum assistance in finding investors as part of the development of the tourism cluster. They will provide grants for opening new enterprises, pay a portion of interest on lease payments, repair and reconstruction of roads leading to tourist sites.
