Turkey Rides on the Success of Mardan Palace

Turkey has become one of the biggest success stories of late having emerged as a sound economic marketplace, partly driven by the highly successful tourism industry.

According to the United Nations World Tourism Organization’s ‘Tourism Highlights Edition,’ Turkey crept up a notch in 2011 to sixth place with 29.3 million visiting tourists. In 2010 it ranked seventh place.

Turkey is the only country in the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) list that moved up among the top ten rankings from seventh to sixth place in 2011.

That same year, 2.58 million British visitors descended upon Turkey with tourism receipts totaling more than $23 billion.

Meanwhile over 17 million international tourists visited Turkey between January and July this year, according to figures released by the tourist board with June peaking at 3.88 million visitors marking a 2.7% increase compared to the previous year.

Fuelling the growth is the country’s tourism jewel of Antalya, with its incredible beaches, climate history and hotels.

And at the forefront of all of this, is the resplendent 546-room Mardan Palace, which is surrounded by the dramatic Taurus Mountain range.
