KAZAN. November 10. /TASS/. Over 3,000 Chinese tourists visited Tatarstan in the first three quarters of 2016, which is 30% more than during the same period last year, the press service of the regional state committee for tourism said in a statement.
“More than 7,000 Chinese citizens visited Tatarstan in the three quarters of 2016 including 3,000 tourists, which is 30% more than in 2015,” the statement reads.
In July 2016, the first charter flight arrived in Kazan’s airport from the Chinese city of Urumqi. “On the whole, 1,242 tourists from China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region visited Tatarstan according to the charter flight program,” the press service elaborated. At present, according to the press service, “work is underway to establish direct flights between Tatarstan and the Sichuan province of China.” “Sichuan is the fifth largest province in China that has the third biggest population of more than 87 million people,” the press service noted.
As TASS reported earlier, during their stay in Kazan, Chinese tourists usually travel along the “Red Route” visiting Lenin’s memorial museum and the Kazan Federal University.
