CityNews – The Association of Tour Operators in Russia has revealed the top New Year’s holiday destinations as Thailand, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, and India. Thailand has always been a very popular holiday destination for Russians.

Beach tours are in high demand for Russian tourists looking to get away from the cold, as well as ski tours for those skilled in the art of sliding down the slopes.

Russian tourists’ views on Egypt as a holiday destination have been increasingly positive recently, while their favourable perceptions of Thailand seem to be dropping. While the political strife has been playing out, the Russian demand for tours to Thailand has considerably decreased.
