This April during the bilateral intergovernmental Russian-Colombian commission, Colombia was visited by two representatives of Russian Touristic Business - the advisor to the executive director of the Association of Russian Tour Operators, Yuri Schegolkov and the director of VSK Tour, Yuri Kuznetsov.
With the support of our company and the Colombian organization Proexport, our guests had the opportunity to visit Bogota, the coffee region, and Cartagena.
In the coffee region they visited Coffee Park, a butterfly garden, Cocora Valley, and the traditional coffee farms - haciendas. They also got the opportunity to “work” as “chapoleros harvesting coffee crops."
In Cartagena they felt all the magic of this Caribbean pearl, walked along it’s colonial streets and learned the hotel base of the city.
Colombia is expecting a tourist boom in the near future, and Russian tourists will be the most precious guests, and they will be many. This is the summary of this short but fruitful visit.
By the invitation and a sponsorship support of Tawi Travel, the film crew of the TV Channel Rossiya will visit Colombia again in August . This time the journalists, together with Vladislav Zavyalov - the host of the TV program “Good Morning, Russia!”, will go to the Caribbean island of San Andres, will be shown how to dance salsa in Cali, will see by their own eyes what the flower fair in Medellin means, and will talk to Bogota’s mayor Samuel Moreno at Sunday's traditional "ciclovia”.
Their reports and films soon to come!
By the invitation of Colombian organization “PROEXPORT”, and also with the assistance of the office of the Vice President of republic Colombia, the film crew of television channel “Russia”, together with Vladislav Zavyalov, who carries on TV program “Good morning, Russia!”, visited many interesting places in Colombia. Here you can look through the photographs, taken during a stay of our guests.
In order to continue the tradition successfully initiated in the previous year, this year Tawi Travel will participate in the exhibition “MITT- 2009," which will take place on March 18 - 22 in the Expocentre of Moscow.
Our stand F008 is in the pavilion forum.
So, we are await all of you who love Colombia irrevocably, all who were there before, and also for those who would like to visit and see for themselves and show it to others.
Earlier the name of this country, for the majority of people, was associated with the myths, the cocaine barons, the action movies, and the mystical Eldorado. But now many people, at the sound of word "Columbia," think about liposuction, silicone breasts, and tightening of the face.
Plastic surgery clinics are scattered around the country and are frequented by thousands of foreign citizens who arrive especially to improve their appearance during vacation. People are attracted by the low prices, good service, and high level of professionalism by the physicians.
The well-developed network of medical establishments is considered to be the prerequisite for such an influx of foreign patients. And they, in turn, arose because Columbians themselves in recent years have been paying much more attention to their appearance, and thus the demand for plastic surgery rapidly rose.
