By far, the biggest lure bringing travellers to Turkey in 2018 is value for money. With a lucrative exchange rate of 4.50 Turkish lira to the dollar, foreign currencies are going further than they ever have before.
Turkish marinas have also been gaining international fame among the recreational boating industry, thanks to private and public incentives to modernise and upgrade. The Palmarina mega-yacht marina in Bodrum is one of the most prominent, because of its ultramodern facilities and leisure amenities but many more on the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts also have excellent facilities.
Let’s also not forget the delicious food, stunning landscapes, warm weather and a time-honoured culture steeped in warm welcomes and hospitality.
