“Looking at the trends in international tourism, we notice that more tourists desire to participate in recreation, sports and adventure and learn about the history, culture, nature and wildlife of the countries they visit. Furthermore, tourists are permanently looking for new destinations and new tourism products. In recent years, Kazakhstan has made significant progress in promoting its image as an attractive, tourism-friendly and dynamic Eurasian destination. The country has enormous potential for cultural, natural-based and business tourism due to its geographic location, its amazing history and great ability to host high level international events.”

“There are several good reasons for you to visit our country: Firstly, Kazakhstan is a fascination holiday destination offering something for everyone to enjoy. There are a lot of distinct tourist places such as Astana, Almaty, Borovoe resorts and the Caspian Sea. Visitors are often surprised to discover how developed the country is, and varied in cultural traditions. One thing’s for certain: everyone wants to return to discover more of Kazakhstan. I can assure.”

“There are fewer than six people living per square mile and the population in 2010 was estimated at 16,300,000- made up of 63 percent the Kazakhs and 23 percent the Russians, with a rich diversity of 130 nationalities living in harmony.”

“7th Asian Winter Games. Holding an event of such scale will give a powerful impact on the development of Astana and Almaty. In particular, the government is investing heavily in infrastructure which creates conditions for developing tourism in the future. Asian Games is an image project which is aimed to show Kazakhstan in the international arena as a completely dynamic country with great potential and as well to provide our country an opportunity to bid Winter Olympic Games in the nearest future. Also within the games, Olympic Torch Relay will be run which will travel all through the country over 20 days and finish on 30 January for Opening Ceremony.”

“The global economic crisis turned last year into one of the toughest years for the tourism sector. International tourist arrivals declined worldwide by 4 percent. However, Kazakhstan’s travel industry has seen huge growth over the last few years, and in 2009, the country’s inbound tourism grew by 8 percent, while outbound tourism saw 23 percent increase- a total of 3,700,000 travelers.

“As you understood, Kazakhstan has great potential for tourism. At the present time, the government changed many of its policies towards tourism development: the cost and time required to process visas, the reduction of tariffs for air services to the construction of large tourist recreation and entertainment centers. It is the source of prosperity in the region at the expense of large investments from the government and foreign investors.”

 

About the event

New York, NY –November 4, The Consul General of Kazakhstan held an informative event, Discover Kazakhstan, on Thursday, November 4 at the Waldorf Astoria, 301 Park Avenue, New York, NY at 6:30 p.m. to provide insights into various topics pertaining to travel and tourism in Kazakhstan. The evening included live entertainment from award winning international performers, Tilep; a quartet of Kobyz (a traditional bow instrument), and welcome packages with gifts from the upcoming 7th Asian Winter Games.

A representative of the Tourism and Sports Department of Astana, Mr. Nurlan Zhanybek, and Vice President of JSC Executive Direction of Organizing Committee of the 7th Asia Winter Games 2011, Mr. Serik Kulmurzayev, delivered a presentation regarding extreme and ecological tourism, new developments in Kazakhstan, the tourism industry, and the 7th Asian Winter Games. These speeches were followed by an open floor Q&A session, then a drawing of guest’s names for a free trip to Kazakhstan, all expenses paid by Russian American Consulting Corp.

With over 4.5 million travelers, the novel attractions in Kazakhstan have helped contribute to an eight percent increase in inbound tourism within the past few years. A country with a reputable industrial foundation, 80 percent of its tourism comes from business-related visits. “Right now, our number one priority is to create a competitive and highly recognized tourism industry, transforming the reputation of Kazakhstan into the tourism hub of the Central Asian region in 2011,” said Raushan Yesbulatova, the Consul General of the Republic of Kazakhstan in New York.

Kazakhstan has won first place in “Best Stand” in the Asian, Pacific and Australian regions at a recent International Tourism Exchange Berlin exhibition. The government of Kazakhstan allocates large funds to the industry and this year the country has been presented at tourist exhibitions in Beijing, Berlin, London, Madrid, Moscow, Paris, Seoul, and Tokyo.

Kazakhstan has a plethora of adventure and eco-travel activities, as well as numerous popular destinations and hidden gem attractions. Visitors can delight in attractions such as the Singing Dunes, where the sand produces organ-like music, the Charyn Canyon on the Charyn River, with unusual rock formations and a unique lunar landscape, Necropolis of Bes-Shatir, also known as the Five Tents which were a place of worship for ancient Saks, and view the Kazakh Yurt- a portable home used by the ancient nomads and a symbol of their far-reaching homeland.

Amongst these unparalleled attractions, Kazakhstan is a popular destination for extreme activities: from mountaineering, rock climbing, water recreations and skiing, to traveling on the Trans-Ili Alatau along the Altai Mountains, to camp sites, sports complexes and hunting grounds. Kazakhstan further features a multitude of lakes, rivers, and the coast of the Caspian Sea, which enables travelers to delight in beach tourism.

The current government initiatives to promote the tourism industry include the State Program of Tourism Development in the Republic of Kazakhstan for 2007-2011, developed by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports and approved by Kazakhstan’s President, Nursultan Nazarbayev. Other initiatives include the annual Kazakhstan International Tourism Exhibition, focused on building and fortifying Kazakhstan’s tourism image and domestic attractions promotion, increasing the flow of foreign tourists, and forming alliances. As an indicator of Kazakhstan’s extended growth in the tourism industry, the 18th session of United Nations World Tourism Organization General Assembly in October, 2009 took place on Kazakhstan’s territory.

The government greatly emphasizes promotion of ecological tourism in the Almaty region at the Ili-Balkhash Regatta, where many extreme adventure tourists gather. A 52-minute documentary about tourism in Kazakhstan (to be released in three languages and aired on TV stations worldwide), is currently in production. Kazakhstan is further preparing to host the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe summit on December 1 and 2, 2010.

From ecological and extreme adventure tourism, to new developments in the country, and numerous government initiatives in the industry, Discover Kazakhstan will provide attendants with crucial news, information, and insights into traveling to Kazakhstan and uncovering all its mysteries and wonders.

The Consulate General of Kazakhstan provides numerous quality services to the Kazakhstan community and enhances relations with partners of Kazakhstan in New York.

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe is the world's largest regional security organization whose 56 participating States span the geographical area from Vancouver to Vladivostok.

Astana is the capital of Kazakhstan and the second largest city in the country. Located in the north-central region of Kazakhstan, the city has undergone many new developments and drastic modern architectural changes, making it one of Kazakhstan’s most popular destinations.
