Turkey Holidays Trends
Over the last few years, Turkey has become increasingly popular as a summer holiday destination. It is a firm favourite with many holiday makers who come back to the country time and time again. There are many reasons why Turkey is such a big hit with tourists. It is relatively new to tourism in relation to beach holidays, and hence its beautiful coastline has remained unspoilt and fairly uncommercialised. A second reason for its popularity is the fact that visitors find that prices are cheap when compared to other medium haul destinations. In addition, an extremely attractive aspect of the Turkish beach holiday is that the country offers a touch of the exotic and the unexpected to the holiday maker, without involving a long flight.
