Al Bustan Centre and Residence hosted a familiarisation (fam) trip for a group of tour operators from Krasnodar and Rostov, two famous cities in Russia.
The fam trip was organised in collaboration with Anex Tours, to promote the emirate as a must destination for travellers from these two cities and Al Bustan Centre & Residence as the preferred accommodation for both business and leisure guests.
The group had the opportunity to experience how the country celebrates Eid Al Adha, one of the most important occasions in the UAE. Al Bustan Centre & Residence treated them to true Arabian hospitality by serving them traditional local and Arabic cuisine during the first day of Eid and also coordinated visits to important attractions in Dubai.
This year, Dubai saw the rise of visitors from Russia after the government granted free visa-on arrival access to citizens of Russia earlier this year. This rise will specially continue strongly in the last quarter of the year 2017.
Moussa El Hayek, Chief Operating Officer, Al-Bustan Centre and Residence said: “We are pleased to welcome the tour operators from Krasnodar and Rostov to our property. The Russian market is an important tourism market for the UAE so by hosting familiarisation trips, we support the government in its efforts to promote the country to this market. The group’s visit during Eid was also very timely because they were able to see how the UAE celebrated this holy occasion.”
