ASTRAKHAN, October 28. /TASS/. Some 2.5 million tourists from China visited Russia in 2015, and their number is expected to triple by 2020, a deputy head of the Federal Agency for Tourism said on Wednesday.
Roman Skory said the incoming tourist flow to Russia has grown by five percent in the first half of 2015, adding that most tourists were arriving from China, Germany and the United States.
The Federal Agency for Tourism earlier announced plans to open offices abroad to attract potential tourists.
The agency’s deputy head, Sergey Korneyev, said travelling to Russia is now profitable for tourists due to low ruble exchange course.
