Turkey to expect 5 million tourists this year

Published on : Monday, January 30, 2017

TurkeyAs many as five million Russian holidaymakers are believed to visit some of the most favored tourist destinations of Turkey, particularly the ones based on Agean and Mediterranean Seas, as asserted by the largest tour operator of Russia, Anex Tour.


The head of Anex Tour mentioned at the World Tourism Forum in Moscow that of the 5.5 million tourists that are expected to arrive in Turkey, 5 million would be Russian.


He added that a million of these vacationers would book their vacations with Anex Tour. This proves that the Russian tourists have missed Turkey especially after they were compelled to look forward to other travel destinations in 2015.


Russian holidaymakers are believed to leverage this sizeable discount packages that are provided by Turkish hotels.


This is one of the major factors that are responsible for the increase in early booking numbers.


The World Tourism Forum would be held in Istanbul between 16th and 18th February with more than 7,000 guests in attendance. It is dubbed as the ‘Davos of Tourism’. This forum is aimed to develop global tourism. This event would draw a large number of industry leaders from all across the world.


The event is expected to feature the 400 best-performing Russian travel agents, apart from 25 speakers from 10 countries. Also, it had 130 press members and industry players.
