Turkish Mediterranean continues to attract tourists, new data says

Data released by the Culture and Tourism Ministry August 9 indicates that the number of tourists visiting Turkey in June 2010 increased by 7.26 percent year-on-year to reach 3.5 million. This figure is an increase of 9.26 percent to 11.57 million for the first six months of the year.

These are strong numbers for Turkey’s tourist industry and particularly for its Mediterranean destinations where the number of Israeli tourists has dropped almost to zero.
