To do this, it is necessary to conduct research, develop travel brands and start promoting them. Tourists need strong images. "One of them is the homeland of tulips, with the resulting tulip festival. In the historical sphere, which, perhaps, will be the main one, the most popular among tourists are the mausoleum of Aisha Bibi, the Akyrtas complex, and Kone Taraz.
