In 2013, 37.8 million foreign visitors arrived in Turkey, which ranked as the 6th most popular tourism destination in the world.
But tourism is way down in 2017 due to negative headlines in the news.
Some nations are warning citizens not to travel to Turkey. Canadians got the warning in 2016 after the attempted coupe.
I’m visiting Izmir right now.
There was a car bomb attack on an Izmir courthouse in 2017.
Still … Izmir and most of Turkey are generally safe for tourists, in my opinion. As safe as you’d be back home.
