What is a tourist country?
It would seem that we all know the answer to this question. The word "tourist" we call countries that are interesting for travel. But we always evaluate this "interest" from our point of view, without thinking that someone can be interesting to someone, and someone in it will not see anything attractive.
For example, any Russian without any delay will call Turkey and Egypt as tourist countries. Everyone knows that Russians are coming here to the beaches of the Red and Mediterranean seas. Antalya, Hurghada and Sharm El-Sheikh know everything.
But if you ask the townsfolk about Austria , not everyone recognizes this country as a tourist destination. However, in Vienna to see the palace Schönbrunn and the treasures of the emperors of the Habsburgs more people come to the year than live in Austria itself.
Or one more vivid example is the country of China . Every year, twice as many foreign tourists come here every year than Egypt. Many want to see the Great Wall of China and the Terracotta Army . If you ask ordinary citizen in Russia, not everyone will call China a tourist country. Our fellow citizens associate this country with cheap smartphones and a huge overpopulation.
Types of tourist countries
We subdivide all tourist countries into several groups.
The first group is the countries of beach rest. Leaders among the Russians are Turkey, Egypt and Greece. Further on descending in statistics of tourist branch we will find Tunisia , Spain, Bulgaria, Italy, Dominican Republic and Morocco . Almost all these countries are described on our website with varying degrees of detail.
The second group is the countries of excursion rest. This is Austria, China, Japan and other states. We are proud of our informative section about Keith, which is already being selected to the size of 100 articles.
Of course, on other sites you will find more pages about China, but our reviews differ in the large volume, the completeness of the information provided and the rich photographic material. We do not make small pages where only general information is given, and some promises of a wonderful holiday are published without any evidence. Everything is described in detail, we give concrete and valuable advice. Remember at least our articles " What to bring to China ", " Taxi in China " or " Visa to China ."
On the site we place special software modules that provide the visitor with up-to-date information. In the article " Money in China - everything about Chinese yuan " you can always see the current exchange rate of the Chinese currency, which is updated four times a day.
The third group is the countries of sport and extreme tourism. We first described Nepal with its famous tracking around Annapurna and the base camp of Everest . Many beach and excursion countries can boast of opportunities for sports and extreme. Remember the same Egypt, where the resort Dahab is an important area for water sports. Hainan Island in China is popular for surfing. Diving in the Dominican Republic is one of the most interesting entertainment.
Which country to choose for a holiday?
This is a complex issue, which every tourist answers independently. We will try to talk about our views on this issue.
First of all, we recommend to forget about the concepts of "prestige" and "steepness". We assure you that so far no one has had a good vacation, going to a place where it is more prestigious, not where you want.
Listen to yourself and ask yourself what exactly you want? Would you like to just lie on the beach in a deck chair, or do you want to see the Colosseum in Rome ? Follow the call of your heart, and there are always options to plan your vacation. The choice of a modern tourist is simply gigantic. You can buy a package tour, you can book the hotel yourself and buy air tickets. You can buy a cruise or go to the right place by car. 50 years ago our grandparents had no such opportunities.
Choosing the right country and the purpose of the trip, you need to decide on the form of buying services. Will it be a batch tour or an independent trip. When we talk about package tours, we mean not only tours to beach hotels, which occupy an overwhelming position in the Russian tourist services market. There are sightseeing tours, loved by many travelers. Very popular bus tours to Germany, Austria or Italy. It often turns out that they can save a lot of money in excursion holidays, although they will somewhat restrict you in freedom of movement.
An independent journey is always complete freedom of choice. But for this type of recreation it is desirable to know foreign languages, and this causes problems for many Russians.
Many are embarrassed that they do not know languages well, they are not sure of their abilities. In fact, you do not need to be fluent in English, German or French. Remember the movie "Brother 2", how did the character of Sergei Bodrov speak in English? Barely, but it was quite enough.
Understand, no one will laugh at you if you speak ill. On the contrary, you will be encouraged. You can say so that you understand, it's already good.
Do not be afraid of travel, do not be afraid of anything. Go to the travel agency or to the website of booking tickets and hotels, buy the right package and enjoy the realization of your dreams. We will always help our articles and bring you the most important information, no matter which country you choose for your holidays.
