Antalya tourism increasing in year of 2022

Antalya, Turkiye’s major holiday destination, is benefitting from a revival in tourism activity, as the number of foreign tourists visiting the province has reached the 2019 level in the first seven months of the year.

More than 7 million foreign tourists have visited the province since the start of the year. All hotels in Antalya are fully booked for August and mid-September, according to people from the industry.

Each day between 80,000 to 90,000 foreign tourists arrive in the province, noting that demand is strong from Europe and Russia, as well as the Scandinavian and Middle Eastern countries.

Germany takes the lead, especially with the start of the holidays in Europe, but countries such as England, Poland and Romania have left their mark on the last two months and the number of tourists from Russia is also expected to reach more than 2 million.

It is expected that the European market will gain importance after September and the visits will continue until mid-November.
