Turkish tourism is slowly coming back to its normal rhythm and occupancy rates are increasing this year. Turkey had a decline in tourism in 2015-2016 due to terror attacks and tourists stayed away from Turkey due to concerns over safety.
Tourists who came to Turkey in that rough patch of 2016 spent $602 on average, whereas, the Turkish tourists who went abroad spent $973. The cultural and intellectual interests of these well-educated and high income tourists are higher with more variation. They have a clear understanding of financial comforts as well as concepts. They are well educated.
Hence, the business world thinks that this state of emergency must end and people should come out of the fear of terror. They should learn to travel more freely without worries.
