The City of Belgrade won the award for the most popular tourist destination at the recently finished Shanghai World Travel Fair. The award was handed out in Shanghai to Mayor of Belgrade Sinisa Mali. This fair is one of the leading events in the field of tourism in China, Beoinfo reports.

– This is great news for Belgrade and Serbia and a confirmation of our efforts to draw as many Chinese tourists to Belgrade as possible. In the first three months of 2017, there were 100% more Chinese tourists than in the corresponding period of 2016. This is a trend that will continue in the coming months and a good foundation for further efforts. We have recently set up info display stands throughout the city, featuring information in Chinese as well. The website of the Tourist Organization of Belgrade has a section in Chinese and the website of the City of Belgrade will also be translated into Chinese in two weeks – Mali pointed out and added that the City of Belgrade strove to do as much as possible in order to make Chinese tourists feel at home.

He emphasizes that the relations of Serbia and China are at a remarkably high level, all of which contributes to the establishment of strong ties between the two nations.

– Serbia is the only country in Europe to have a visa-free regime with the citizens of China, and we are also working on establishing a direct Belgrade-Beijing route. All this leads to an increase of the number of tourists in Belgrade, not just those from China, but from other countries as well – Mali concluded.

The fair features 750 exhibitors from 53 states, and the number of visitors has been estimated at 50,000.
