ALMATY-THE PERFECT TOURISM SPOT IS VISITED BY ECTT HIGH LEVEL DELEGATION
WHAT IS SILK ROAD ? WHY EUROPEAN COUNCIL ON TOURISM AND TRADE IS SUPPORTING THE INITIATIVE ?
European Council on Tourism and Trade (ECTT) is one of the pivotal organizations involved in the re-birth of TOURISM ON SILK ROAD. A STRATEGY FOR XXI CENTURY.
This strategy was launched in 2010, during Professor Dr. Anton Caragea- ECTT President discussions with Turkmenistan President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and in 2011 with Tajikistan President-Emomali Rahmon and will be given a new impetus during European Council on Tourism and Trade trip on the SILK ROAD.
The trip will start from Almaty and will continue to Shymkent, Taraz, Turkistan-Sauran and Kyzylorda during 20 to 29 April 2015.
The Great Silk Road is rightly considered to be one of the remarkable achievements of the medieval civilizations.
President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov proclaimed as a new world tourism leader by ECTT President-Professor Dr. Anton Caragea
It succeeded connecting countries and nations from the Mediterranean Sea to the Pacific Ocean and brings together material, art and spiritual cultures.
This ancient Silk Road should become the backbone of tourism and travel industry of the region and have a powerful attraction that can lure world tourists and bring together handicrafts, technologies, ideas and beliefs.
Historical Landmarks on the Silk Road to be visited by ECTT
Among the historical landmarks on the Great Silk Road are such cities as the ancient city of Mary-Merv, located in Turkmenistan and called by Arab historians the “father of the cities”, the majestic construction of Emir Timur epoch – the mausoleum of Hodja Ahmad Yassavi in the Kazakhstan historic town of Turkestan.
The Great Silk Road however is not only the network of caravan trails and a number of cities and towns which used to be stopping places for traders.
It is also a magnificent scenery: mountain peaks and alpine meadows of the Tien-Shan and the Pamir’s, sandy deserts intersected by a unique handmade construction – the Karakum Canal, glittering waters of Lake Issyk-Kul and relic pine forests of Borovoye, skiing resorts of Chimgan and Beldersay, picturesque Charvak water reservoir and a number of other notable places to visit.
Those who fancy extreme tourism could try their strengths by mountaineering, down-stream boating or rafting on the rapid mountain rivers, or, just as ancient pilgrims did, to make a horseback riding or even more exotic camel riding along desert dunes.
On The Silk Road Today
Great Silk Road undoubtedly one of the most attractive tourist routes of the world of today.
It is much due to the revival of the Great Silk Road that the mankind has access to the global heritage of different nations that for thousands of years lived along this great transcontinental arterial road and that formed and matured their varied cultural wealth.
European Council on Tourism and Trade had started with the help of Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan from 2010 onwards to carve out a long-term tourist project aimed at the promotion of tourism in this region.
Turkistan-the heart of Silk Road Project
Great Silk Road deserves to be the center of attention,states Professor Dr. Anton Caragea
The Great Silk Road has not succeeded in penetrating the mass conscience of tourism because was carved out as an inter-nation project where a traveler is under the stress of visiting several countries.
The revolutionary European Council on Tourism and Trade strategy is to market each country as a part of Silk Road adventure and to offer the experience each country at a time, giving tourists the time opportunity to learn about the past and the present of these countries.
All of the landmarks along the route like many other historic monuments are major tourist attractions and should be visited by travelers all the year round.
Also should be promoted the fact that some of the countries of the region relay strides to offer high-class services for tourists offering developed infrastructure and comfortable hotels.
This country should be promoted and presented as offering the full experience of SILK ROAD IN XXI CENTURY.
The visit of European Council on Tourism and Trade delegation from 20 to 29 April 2015 will offer to Kazakhstan the status of the homeland and main stop over on Silk Road re-birth strategy and together with Turkmenistan resurgence as a touristic hub will create a perfect strategy for Silk Road development.
