Financial Times recommends its readers to choose Kyrgyzstan as one of the travel destinations for 2016. International business newspaper published on its website a list of seven countries worth visiting in 2016. Else than Kyrgyzstan, it also includes Sri-Lanka, Peru, Greenland, Brazil, Cuba and South Africa.
It is also noted in the message that every year Kyrgyzstan is attracting more and more tourists with its interesting nomad culture, breathtaking mountain landscapes, crystal clear lakes and forests. Moreover, as of 2012, Kyrgyzstan introduced a visa-free regime for citizens of many western countries that also influenced the development of the tourism industry.
In 2016, Kyrgyzstan promises to be even more interesting for newly arriving tourists. Apart from untouched natural landscapes, traditional hikes to the Tyan-Shan Mountains, bike rides along ancient Silk Road and night stays in yurts, Kyrgyzstan offers many other entertaining events dedicated to the 25th anniversary of independence. There will be held festivals, traditional games and nomad contests across the country.
