Chinese travel agents to visit Belarus in May

MINSK, 13 May (BelTA) – Chinese travel agents will pay a familiarization visit to Belarus in late May, BelTA learnt from Deputy Director of the National Tourism Agency of Belarus Svetlana Gavrilova.

In early May Belarus presented its tourism potential in Beijing. The event was attended by about 30 representatives of the tourism industry. Following the talks with Chinese travel agents a decision was taken to organize a visit for them to Belarus. “A 4-5-day familiarization tour for representatives of the Chinese tourism industry will take place in late May. Apart from Minsk we will offer them visiting Mir, Nesvizh, Belovezhskaya Pushcha, Berezinsky biosphere reserve, Brest Fortress, and the Khatyn Memorial,” Svetlana Gavrilova said. Battlefield and historical tourism arouses much interest in China. In this respect the National Tourism Agency is busy working the relevant routes for the guests. Besides, the list of China’s tourism preferences includes the familiarization with the modern architecture of the Belarusian capital (National Library and Minsk Arena).

According to Svetlana Gavrilova, the number of Chinese tourists to Belarus may increase in the coming years. The opening of the direct flight Minsk-Beijing is one of the favorable conditions for that.

As was informed, the first direct flight between China and Belarus was opened on 1 May 2015. The airline will connect Beijing, Minsk and Budapest. Air China initiated the opening of the direct flight that connected China, Belarus and Hungary. The flight Beijing-Minsk-Budapest will be operated four times a week: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.
