Turkish tourism destination attracting more visitors despite the pandemic

Famous for its sparkling seas, warm climate, lively marinas, blue cruise tours, luxury tourism and many other unique features, Bodrum's tourist attraction center, the tourist attraction on the Turkish Riviera, continues to attract international tourists and investments despite the pandemic.

The mayor of the southwestern resort town, Ahmet Aras, said, "Domestic and foreign investments have been increasing in recent years and they did not slow down during the epidemic."

Stating that the value of ongoing projects, including infrastructure projects in Bodrum, has exceeded $ 5 billion so far, Aras added that leading global companies have purchased and renovated idle hotels in the city.

“Elite global hotel brands continue to flock to Bodrum,” said Aras, adding that most of them come from the USA, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK.

In addition to cultural attractions such as fairs and congresses, yacht construction and sports complexes, foreign visitors also show great interest in Bodrum's active health sector.

“Russians are more interested in sports tourism, especially ice hockey, which is currently in the project phase,” he said.

Luxury yacht building, yacht charter, fishing and wineries also play an important role in Bodrum's economy.

Pointing out how the pandemic increased the demand for housing, Aras pointed out that the foundations of new real estate projects were laid in order to keep up with this increasing demand.

Aras said that over time, tourists who fell in love with the Bodrum holiday started to examine investment opportunities in the town.

“This peninsula is always open to projects that are compatible with its environment, identity and character,” he said.

Aras said that the global tourism industry was affected by the epidemic in which most of the aircraft crashed, so Bodrum had a 90 percent decrease in the number of foreign visitors by August to 100,000.

However, before the epidemic started, he said that Bodrum has attracted great attention from the markets of Western Europe, Baltic, Russia and Ukraine, and recently, when he thinks that some summer is over, it has attracted attention again.

"Despite the gloomy numbers, the summer season, which should end on September 15, has been extended until mid-October," Aras said.

He explained that the occupancy rate in some Bodrum hotels is over 90 percent due to the increasing domestic tourist demand.

He said that about 10,000 cars entered the city in July, giving an impressive translation to about 30,000 people a day.

The beautiful weather, atmosphere, open-air spaces, spacious homes and villas of Bodrum proved irresistible to many people, especially those who moved to work remotely and moved from big cities.
