Preparations are in full swing for "The Year of Chinese Tourism in Russia." As part of this major event, the National Tourism Administration is busy promoting China’s rich tourism resources in Moscow.
Cooperation on tourism between Russia and China continues to grow. This year, China has been the guest of honor at the Russia International Tourism Expo. Many visitors are lured to the exhibition booth.
2012 marked "The Year of Russian Tourism in China". The two countries initiated over 200 projects, including self-driving tours from Beijing to Moscow, and a documentary film. The number of Chinese visitors to Russia has quadrupled in the last five years. The number nearly doubled last year alone, thanks to the tourism project.
