    Local authorities will carry out an informational tour of Crimea for Chinese tour operators between March 28 and April 1, according to the statement of the Crimean Ministry of Tourism and Resorts.

    MOSCOW, March 27 (Sputnik) — Some 15 tour operators from China will visit Crimea to assess the tourism and recreational opportunities on the peninsula, the Crimean Ministry of Tourism and Resorts said in a statement Friday.

    “An informational tour of Crimea will be carried out between March 28 and April 1, for 15 major Chinese tour operators,” the statement published on the ministry’s website read.

    The informational tour will be held to promote Crimean tourism opportunities on the Chinese market.

    In October 2014, Crimea’s envoy to Russian President Vladimir Putin, Georgiy Muradov, said that the peninsula’s authorities count on developing direct tourist routes with China.

    On March 16, Crimea reunited with Russia following a referendum where residents voted with an absolute majority of 96 percent in favor of the decision.
