The Russians Began to Refuse Tours to China
The situation with China was reflected in the demand for tours to Thailand and Vietnam: “Agents and tourists are worried, calls have been sent to the Intourist’s contact center asking how safe the rest is in these countries of Southeast Asia”, said a representative of Intourist.
But the demand for airline tickets to China and Southeast Asian countries has increased. According to Aviasales, demand for tickets to China in January 2020 increased by 17% compared with January of the previous year, while interest in tourists to Thailand and South Korea increased by 27% and 72%, respectively. Russian flow to China is the largest in July, August and September - on average, demand in these months increases to 50%, Aviasales added.
