In light of the wildfires that have ravaged parts of Turkey, the mayors of tourism hubs and the key players in the sector have called on tourists not to cancel their reservations.
“We were in trouble and people are scared. But, there is no danger anymore. The fires have been put out,” said some hotel owners of the famous tourism districts.
Calling on tourists, they said, “We need your help. If you want to help us, please come to our regions and spend your holiday.”
“This will be the best thing you can do for us,” sector representatives underlined.
The tourism sector in the country has been suffering from the pandemic outbreak since March 2020 and the mucilage covering some shorelines of the Marmara and the Aegean Seas since April.
