On October 3, a group of bloggers from the Kingdom of Thailand's PR company arrived in Tashkent on a HY-534 flight from Bangkok. Representatives of the National Airline, the capital's air harbor and mass media greeted the guests at the International airport "Tashkent" named after I. Karimov.
Over the past half century, tourism has become one of the fastest growing and most important sectors of the economy in the world. Uzbekistan is the heart of Central Asia and an important strategic country located on the Great Silk Road and possessing great tourism potential. And the state policy in the field of tourism is aimed at transforming the tourism industry into a strategic sector of the national economy.
National air carrier Uzbekistan Airways makes its significant contribution to the development of this sector. The airline is actively engaged in activities aimed at promoting domestic tourism and attracting foreign tourists to our country. New routes are being opened, the number of flights to international and domestic destinations is increasing, and direct flights from foreign countries to the historical cities of our country are being introduced in the tourist season. Attractive tours to Uzbekistan are being developed jointly with tour operators, group tariffs are being offered and a flexible discount system is being applied.
The next project of the NAC "Uzbekistan Airways" organized by the "Uzbekistan Airways" representative office in Bangkok in cooperation with the travel agency "Dolores Tour" has become a kind of study tour for the residents of the Kingdom of Thailand in our country. A team of bloggers from the PR company of this Kingdom arrived in Tashkent today to make a kind of pilgrimage tour on the heritage of Buddhism and get acquainted with the historical cities of Uzbekistan.
From 3rd to 9th October, the working team of Thailand is waiting for a tour around the sights of the cities of our republic. Guests will travel to Termez, where they will visit the oldest architectural monuments of the era of the Kushan Empire: Buddhist monastery complex Kara-Tepe, located on the bank of the Amu Darya River, and Buddhist temple complex Fayaz-Tepe near the old Termez, dating back to the 1st-3rd centuries B.C., which is considered the first cult Buddhist building, as well as the cult Buddhist construction - the Buddhist stupa Zurmala near Old Termez, which is the first Buddhist construction discovered in Central Asia and one of the oldest Buddhist symbols rising to the mounds, will be met by a colorful sunset in the village of Baysun. Bloggers will also visit the sights of Samarkand, Bukhara, Tashkent and mountain resorts in Uzbekistan - Chimgan, Beldersay, Archazor and Charvak Lake.
