According to the operator's statistics, Moscow and St. Petersburg are the most popular among Chinese guests, accounting for more than 57% of all Chinese trips.

In addition to the border areas of the Primorye territory, the Amur Region and the Trans-Baikal Territory, the list of the most popular destinations among Chinese citizens includes the Murmansk, Irkutsk and Tver regions, as well as Tatarstan.
