The annual 38th International Tourism Exhibition (FITUR 2018) is held in Spanish Madrid from 17 to 21 January.
Being one of the largest tourist events, FITUR has gathered many organizations from various countries specializing in tourist business.
The Turkmen tourist agency “Owadan syýahat” also takes part in this significant event. This year it presents at the exhibition the project “Silk Road destinations”, within the framework of which tours on the historical route of the Great Silk Road are offered. In particular, in our country’s territory tourists will be able to visit sites that are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List: Nisa, Merv and Kunyaurgench.
Also “Owadan syýahat” suggests combined tours to the countries of Central Asia in the places where the Great Silk Road passed.
According to the agency’s staffs, foreign partners demonstrate great interest to this project. In 2017, “Owadan syýahat” received more than 3 thousand tourists who arrived in Turkmenistan, most of them are representatives of European countries. So, there is reason to believe that in 2018 this figure will increase.
In early January, the private tourist company performed at the tourist fair in Amsterdam with the project “Turkmenistan”, and in March this year it will be among the participants of one of the biggest tourist exhibitions in the world – ITB Berlin.
