14:03, 05 January 2017, 1896

AKIPRESS.COM - The New York Times has listed Kazakhstan, called "from oil state to luxury eco-destination", as one of the 52 places to go in 2017.

"Ten years after Borat put it on tourist maps, Kazakhstan aims to be a refuge of Silk Road luxury. A boom of hotels in the capital, Astana, include this year’s openings of a St. Regis and Ritz-Carlton. But an earnest transition from oil state to eco-destination is also underway. Astana hosts the 2017 World Expo, which highlights future energy solutions and is home to a pavilion powered by clean energy, while the biodiverse Tian Shan mountains were included on Unesco’s 2016 World Heritage list. The tour outfitters Remote Lands and Intrepid Travel have also started new tours," the New York Times wrote.

The list also includes India's Agra, Michigan's Detroit, Morocco's Marrakesh, Gabon, China's Sanya, Laikipia in Kenya, Busan in South Korea, and other destinations.
