Increase in number of tourists from Thailand, France and Taiwan is recorded in Primorye.

      
The number of the foreigners who visited Primorye for the first half of the year grew by 13,6%, this Far East region is mostly popular for tourists from Thailand, France and Taiwan, the regional administration reports.

      
The growth of tourist arrivals is noted both from the Asia-Pacific region as well as from the West. According to the tourism department of Primorsky Krai, in the past six months, the region was visited by 135.9 thousand tourists, which is 13.6% more than in the same period of the last year.

      The central region of the Primorsky Territory, bounded by the Ussuri river and shielded from the sea by the Sikhote-Alin Mountains, is also known as Ussuriland. The southern forests of the Ussuriland taiga is home to black and brown bears, Siberian boar, the rare Siberian tiger and the virtually extinct Amur leopard, and hundreds of species of local birds. A most rewarding excursion would be to the Sikhote-Alin nature reserve. Besides tigers, the reserve, which stretches along the Pacific coast and back into the Sikhote-Alin Mountains, has crystal-clear salmon streams, an oasis where the beasts come for water. 

      
Primorsky Territory lies in the Russia’s outskirts, in the very south of the Far East on the Japan Sea coast. Its area is 165.9 thousand km, which equals to almost 1% of the total area of the Russian Federation. The climate in here is temperate, monsoon, and humid, and is distinguished by mild winters and cool summers. The average January temperatures in these regions range from –20o to –4oC. The warmest month in Primorye’s continental areas is July, and on the coastline- August. The average summer temperature is 18C. The region is known for its nature reserves and unique species which are very rare anywhere else. Primorsky Territory features a stunning diversity of life. Habitual species of the north like moose and bear here live together with tiger and leopard, European birch and northern larch are often coexist with tropical vines and lianas. A number of plants and animals are unique to this region. The local Botanical Gardens are full of diverse trees, shrubs and vines, most of which are indigenous species found in the forests of Primorye.
