Turkey, Sri Lanka, and Seychelles rank high among GCC and UAE travellers

For GCC and UAE travellers, three destinations that comfortably fall within this travel formula are Turkey, Sri Lanka, and Seychelles. Tourism experts from all three countries have reported an increase in travellers from the GCC over the years. 

Speaking to Khaleej Times, undersecretary of the Turkey Ministry of Culture and Tourism Omer Arisoy said that, with a flight time of around four and a half hours, Turkey is one of the most popular holiday destinations for GCC nationals. 

“Istanbul and Antalya are popular destinations, as are Trabzon and Rize,” he said. “We recorded around 300,000 tourists coming in from the GCC region in 2016, and we have plans to increase this number in the coming years.”
