In our country, it has long been established that the main part of the population inside the country rests as a savage, bypassing travel companies. We remember travel agencies only when we pack our bags for a holiday abroad. There are a number of objective and subjective reasons for this.

If our fellow citizens go to rest on natural objects, it is mainly with the help of aid companies that do not work officially, all the money goes only into the pocket of one person, bypassing taxes to the treasury.

Let not by leaps and bounds, but still there are shifts in this direction and this pleases. And we need to maintain and increase this trend, ” says Rashida Shaikenova, President of the KTA.
In her opinion, it is also very important to form the right consumer behavior among tourists. “In most cases, our fellow citizens mistakenly believe that it is comfortable for savages to go on vacation in nature on their own vehicles. But the tourism industry is not just about going out into nature. This is a whole range of services that need to be properly packaged and sold to the consumer. Tour operators are good because they offer new destinations every time, they are engaged in updating and expanding their travel products, ” R. Shaikenova is sure.
