Thailand is the leader for the New Year holidays requests in Russia
According to the portal "Rambler - Travel", the first orders for the New Year holidays are divided between Thailand, Vietnam, UAE and Andorra. Minimum price of sea tour for 8 days will amount 110 thousand rubles (Pattaya, 3-stars), and to the ski resort - 97 thousand rubles (Andorra, 2 - stars).
"We are noting a decline of demand for winter holiday tours, but at the same time the pre-booking depth increased. The first tour for the end of December was ordered on "Rambler - Travels" in July. Customers are afraid of growth of currency exchange rate by the end of the year and strive to purchase the tour as soon as possible", - said the Head of the service 'Rambler - Travel" Alena Koryakina.
By the end of September the rating of tours among the Russian tourists is as follows: Thailand - 18%, Czech Republic - 11%, Vietnam - 8%, Andorra - 5%, UAE - 4.5%, Sochi - 3.5%.
