One of the world’s three major tourist exhibitions, WTM London, was held in the UK. Every year, its tourist potential represents 184 countries, including the Kyrgyz Republic. Representatives of 14 major travel companies of Kyrgyzstan and Tourism Development Support Fund of the Kyrgyz Republic told about our tourism opportunities.
The National Pavilion of Kyrgyzstan was opened by President of the Tourism Development Support Fund Abylkasym Sherniyazov and Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Kyrgyz Republic to the United Kingdom Ulan Jusupov.
Over the course of three days, hundreds of meetings were held, and the program was written literally in minutes. Travel companies, online booking systems, marketing agencies - the topics discussed were very extensive.
Our country is interesting in the world. Not just as a new direction that tourists are just beginning to discover. But also as a destination based on the principles of sustainable tourism, highly respected in the world. In this regard, foreigners are very interested in glamping and yurts as alternative accommodation, eco-friendly and authentic. Visitors also asked about things to do in Kyrgyzstan. Extreme tourism is especially in demand - trekking on mountains and lakes, rafting on mountain rivers. As well as tours to several countries of Central Asia.
At the exhibition there were many requests from foreign travel bloggers who would like to visit Kyrgyzstan and tell subscribers about their impressions. And representatives of Warner Bros. plan to shoot a video about Kyrgyzstan. Vice President of the Fund Maksat Usubalyev told them about the diversity of tourism opportunities in the Kyrgyz Republic.
The Tourism Fund participated in WTM London for the second time, strengthening and expanding the contacts established a year earlier.
