          Clients Ted Travel failed too cheap potentiomete cluttered with Chinese roots Chinese Tourists attracted Russian Murmansk

          The number of Chinese wishing to visit Russia with tourist purposes is growing rapidly. The citizens of Communist China, oddly enough, involve in Russia is primarily not Lenin. Why PRC residents are so tempting Russian expanses, how much they earn and that Russia is most shocking in our country of Chinese tourists?

          Even in 2015, Chinese tourists overtook the Germans in terms of entry into Russia. And their flow to Russia is growing in double digits.

          According to the Association of tour operators of Russia (ATOR), the number of tourists from China to Russia by the end of summer increased from 20% for the full year could increase by 30%. The so-called red route was developed for the Chinese in Russia – that is, the journey to the places associated with Lenin and sights of the Soviet time, nothing to do with it. The Chinese are more interested in not Lenin, and, oddly enough, amber, believe in ATOR.

          Last year Russia was visited by about 1.3 million Chinese, so this year will come to more than half a million visitors from China.

          “This is the data on entry of Chinese into Russia, but not all travel is for tourism purposes. A high proportion of cross-border trips to the far East, and it is not tourists and Shuttle traders. More correct statistics on the tourist flow is visiting Moscow and Saint-Petersburg”, – said General Director of tour operator “Dolphin” Sergey Romashkin. In his opinion, of the 1.3 million Chinese entering Russia, tourists were 750 thousand people.

          About 80-90% of Chinese tourists travel on a visa-free exchange group, independent tourists buying visa, a little bit. Mostly Chinese tourists are women over the age of 50, recently became grandparents to take grandchildren.

          The main attraction of the Chinese in Moscow, which is under the visa-free exchange group in the first half of the year was visited by 128 thousand, which is 21% higher than a year earlier (the data of the tourist Association “World without borders”). In second place – Primorsky Krai with 67 thousand tourists per year (plus 17%), in third place – St. Petersburg, which saw 52 thousand (plus 136%). This rapid growth is due to increased numbers of direct flights from China to the Northern capital.

          Why do so many Chinese people began to travel to Russia? First, tours and products in Russia for the Chinese has fallen in price almost twice because of the devaluation of the ruble. Thus in China there was a middle class who earns sometimes even more than the Russian.

          Second, the effect of load introduction of simplified visa regime. “During the transition to a visa-free regime, for example, with South Korea and Israel during the year after that, the flow of tourists has doubled. In Moscow 90% of Chinese tourists go through a simplified visa regime,” – says Mr. Romashkin.

          Finally, attracted by the historical relationship of Russia with China and our socialist roots. “The average age of Chinese tourists – 50 plus. They see us as a kindred country, which once walked the same path on which they go now,” said Romashkin.

          Specially designed “red route” in the footsteps of Lenin, Moscow, Ulyanovsk, Kazan, Samara, Saint Petersburg, Russia – hundreds of thousands of tourists to attract really couldn’t.

          However, the objects of the Soviet heritage in Moscow and St. Petersburg, the Chinese continue to attract. “The mausoleum of Lenin, Gorki Leninskie, “Bunker-42″ is, of course, are very popular among the Chinese. Once I was driving with the Chinese on the bus, and watched as they saw the statue of Lenin, asked to stop the bus to go out and take pictures,” says the programme Manager of China Friendly toassociate “World without borders” Anna Sibirkina.

          Why did the Chinese mass do not go to Ulyanovsk? “Any tourists go to another country to look at well-known brands. In France, it is Paris and the Eiffel tower. In Moscow’s Red square and the Tretyakov gallery, in St. Petersburg – the Hermitage and Peterhof. And around these strong brands and turns the entire tourism program. Neither Ulyanovsk, or other facilities of the “red” heritage are not strong brands,” – said Romashkin. And in General this is the direction he believes unpromising, as “red” tourism attracts only older Chinese people who remember the Soviet Union. But such people every year becomes less.

          The authorities of Sochi after the Olympics were hoping to lure to the city the Chinese. Besides the Olympic objects wanted to surprise beach holiday. However, the massive flow of tourists is not seen. Olympic venues in China are. “And the idea of a beach holiday in Russia is not China, they have an hour and a half flight has its own sea,” said Romashkin.

          More prospects for Murmansk where it is possible to see the Northern lights. “In China there is a beautiful legend: if you have at least once in my life I saw the Northern light, your children, grandchildren and your soul that many generations will find harmony,” says Sibirkina. Therefore, the Chinese and going to the Arctic circle. Also guests from China with great excitement travel to lake Baikal, because it is one of the most famous lakes in the world.

          Because of the long flights, some Chinese are trying in one trip to combine a visit to the EU and Russia, although it is more expensive. “Fourteen flights to Paris – it’s hard, but along the way you can make a stop in Moscow or Saint-Petersburg and look at Russian sites,” says Sibirkina.

          If historically Russia and China have a close relationship, from a cultural point of view, the Chinese and Russians are very different. “The Chinese group of tourists were in Sergiyev Posad and drove in Radonezh the relics of Sergei Radonezhsky. The Chinese were a culture shock when they told me that this is the remains of a deceased person,” said Romashkin. In China, contact with the dead body is considered desecration.

          The coat of arms of Moscow, where St. George kills the dragon with his spear, the Chinese also do not like. They worship the images of dragons and any abuse or disrespect to them condemn.

          “When they showed the coat of arms of Moscow, they could not believe their eyes and asked, dragon. Guide-interpreter, knowing about dragons, tried to wriggle out: “No, it’s a snake.” What the Chinese said, “do Not lie, the serpent has no wings.” After that, the relationship with our translator as the representative of the country lost interest,” says Romashkin.

          Another feature of the Chinese tourists is the attachment to your food. “Almost 100% of tourists who come to Russia, require food in Chinese restaurants. But those restaurants that we consider to be authentic, the Chinese are not considered. In Moscow, the Chinese restaurants there are fewer than 50 pieces, but the Chinese believe that not more than five comply with the proud name of the Chinese restaurant,” says the source.

          The Chinese love to drink tea and almost never part with their thermos with a strainer. In hotels they ask for a cooler with hot water and kettles in room for tea and Breakfast – sticks instead of forks.

          Another problem – almost none of the Chinese do not speak English, so they have serious difficulties with navigation in Moscow, St. Petersburg or the Golden ring. “Although many cities have held events for information and navigation support of Chinese tourists, but so far not very advanced in this direction, the English signs are few,” says Romashkin.

          In Moscow, for example, there is a special police station where the staff speak foreign languages. Most English, less German, but speakers of Chinese.

          Although the situation is improving. If in 2014 there were only seven enterprises, which take into account peculiarities of tourists from China, today there are 100 in Russia. It’s hotels, museums and travel companies. “In Russia appeared first airport – Sheremetyevo – matches the China Friendly program. This navigation by the airport in the Chinese language, the possibility of consultation on Chinese language ads in Chinese, the presence of restaurants with Chinese and Asian dishes,” says Sibirkina.

          Capital city of good living for Chinese tourists. According to Sibirkina, Chinese tourists spend an average of $ 530 per person per day including flights, accommodation, museums and shopping. Romashkin said that this mass cheap tourism and, on average, on the trip they spend $ 1,500. But even this is enough to earn more than 1 trillion rubles to 750 thousand Chinese tourists visiting Russia last year.

          The Chinese are sure to make purchases in Russia. According to Sibirkina, they get mostly branded items, cosmetics, including domestic, watches and jewelry of gold and amber.

          In her opinion, they believe that Russia will be able to buy these premium things. And, of course, they like the price.

          “In China you have to pay taxes on luxury items, so the same mascara brand or cream can cost in Russia is 30% cheaper than China”,

          says Sibirkina.

          The Chinese are also attracted by the unique and authentic Russian products. Food, for example, take the honey and lots of chocolates “Alenka” and “Inspiration”, which give friends and relatives as Souvenirs.

          Chinese tourists go exclusively with groups, and purchase the same make together. However, after the trip, the Chinese sometimes complain about the quality of the items purchased or discovered forgery. It is known that the curators Chinese groups are sometimes in collusion with certain stores in which ordinary Russian buyers will never get transported to a group of Chinese tourists where they sell or counterfeiting, or product at an inflated price, or deceived twice.
