VLADIVOSTOK, November 15. /TASS/. Chinese businessmen taking part in the Days of the Heilongjiang province in Russia’s Pacific region of Primorye, have visited the regional sightseeing attractions and expressed a wish to develop new routes in Primorye that could attract their fellow citizens, the regional administration said in a statement.
“The Chinese businessmen pointed out that as many as possible people needed to know about these attractions, so they have invited representatives of Primorye to take part in a tourist exhibition in the Heilongjiang province. The Chinese partners may develop new routes for foreign tourists after visiting Primorye,” the statement reads.
Representatives of the Tourism Development Committee and 12 tourist companies from the Heilongjiang province visited the Primorskoye Koltso (or Primorye Ring) complex where international drifting competitions take place. They also visited a safari park where rare species of plants and animals are preserved. After that, the Chinese delegation visited the Tigre de Cristal hotel and casino.
