Turkey, the rising star of the tourism world, was recently evaluated as a “country worth visiting” by the famous Forbes magazine. Forbes wrote that Turkey was a "great opportunity" to have a great holiday due to the depreciation of the Turkish lira and its beauty.
The concerned article was written by Larry Olmsted, who used the following headline: “Are you tired of going on an expensive vacation to Europe? For a great holiday at an affordable price, consider Turkey.”
In the news also reported in the Turkish media, the author stated that vacation costs were rising due to inflation in Europe and the United States and suggested Cappadocia instead of Venice.
OLMSTED made a price comparison between countries and said, "Most people like a vacation, but they don't want or can't afford to keep up with increasing travel costs. Fortunately, it's an affordable European (or Asian) destination with great food, culture, history, big cities, incredible scenery and outdoor activities. Those who want a vacation can think of Turkey.”
Stating that many Americans chose Istanbul for a great holiday, the author shared details about a one-week holiday in Turkey. Olmsted added that just under $ 1,900 had been enough to spend on this holiday.
The author also wrote about his holiday in Turkey: "I went to Istanbul, Cappadocia and Izmir in 7 days. I went to the ancient city of Ephesus, saw the Temple of Artemis, and went on a balloon tour in Cappadocia. I went to the Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace, and Basilica Cistern with a private guide. We made transfers by private vehicles and stayed in the most luxurious hotels. I stayed in iconic cave hotels in Cappadocia.”
"One week holiday in Turkey instead of 3 days in Venice”
Olmsted compared Venice and Turkey in terms of cost. He specifically stated that he preferred to take a week's vacation in Turkey instead of staying for three nights in Venice.
