4-9 December, at the invitation of the ССI of RA, the owner and head of the tourist agency "Adventours" from Belgium, Mr. Aurielien de St. Blancard, visited Abkhazia. The main interest in his visit is the tourist potential of Abkhazia, its resort and tourist sites and attractions, with sightseeing routes, tours for French-speaking tourists from Belgium.
Aurielien de St. Blancard first heard about Abkhazia at the Tourist International Exhibition "Salon Mondial du Tourisme a Paris" in Paris(March 2016).
Our republic was represented by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The participants of the exhibition and her guests had a chance to taste Abkhazian cheese, meat, alcoholic beverages and were also interested in brochures about Abkhazia.
Aurielien de St. Blancard believes that it's better for foreign tourists to stay in the capital, because it's much easier in terms of location.
Aurielien de St. Blancard said that he intends to organize tours lasting 5-6 days. “My stay in Abkhazia was devoted to the study of the local market. I had to see everything with my own eyes, then write a tour program. The tourist should have a clear idea of where he is going and what he will see, and only then decide when he wants to come to your country. Of course, every tourist has his favorite season: someone will choose autumn or summer, someone will spring or winter, "said the Belgian tour operator.
