According to the national plan, cultural and tourist cluster will be created in Kazakhstan
Tourism development is one of the prioritized spheres in ‘100 concrete steps’ program. According to the national plan, cultural and tourist cluster will be created in Kazakhstan. British experts believe that this approach will bear fruit.
GEORGE SMITH, SPOKESPERSON, INSTITUTE OF TRAVEL AND TOURISM:
- National parks all the way across the country. To open up these national parks to trekking is a wonderful idea. And this is a natural asset which fits very nicely with the equal tourism module.
Paul Dahlquist is the great-great-great-grandson of the traveler Thomas Atkinson who was the first European to explore the Land of the Great Steppe. His descendant and his family have visited the Almaty region. The guests were warmly welcomed, treated with national dishes, told about traditions and made a tour to the national park and historical places. Kazakhstan inspired him, now he advises everyone to visit the republic.
PAUL DAHLQUIST, TOURIST:
- Kazakhstan while there is so much to the country and so much different, different terrain and we’ve only seen a small part.
As British experts say, tourism development, be it ecological, medical or sports, takes at least five years. The industry can attract massive funds to a country. Therefore, international experts fully support Kazakhstan's desire to increase its tourist potential.
