Turkey Ranks Fourth-Most Popular Destination for Muslim Travellers during Ramadan 2016

According to the recently released Global Muslim Travel Index, Turkey comes in third on a list of top five destinations for Muslim travellers. Turkey especially sees a surge in Muslim tourists during Ramadan, and has this year ranked fourth in the list of top 20 destinations for Muslim travellers during the holy month, as per the Ramadan Travel Report 2016.
 
 
“The trend for Muslims to travel to the GCC during the fasting period has been growing over the last few years – these countries offer them Muslim-friendly services and facilities such as Halal food, prayer rooms and post-iftaar activities. Turkey not only offers all of these, but serves up a world-class tourist destination, with popular sights to visit and activities to be a part of,” says Salih Ozer, Attaché of Culture and Information from Turkey to the UAE, on the nation’s unwavering popularity as a Muslim tourist destination during Ramadan. Turkey featured in the list of top five destinations for Muslim travellers in 2015 as well.
 
 
The Ramadan Travel Report 2016 also forecasts that GCC destinations will rise further in popularity by 2023, when Ramadan will fall during the cooler winter months. Ozer further adds that Turkey is preparing to accommodate this projected surge in tourist numbers.
 
 
“The Muslim travel sector presents incredible opportunities – especially since it represents one of the fastest growing tourism sectors in the world. We are boosting their efforts to attract and cater to the increasing number of Muslim visitors during Ramadan. We understand the unique needs and preferences of Muslim travellers, and are tailor our products and services to their visit during the fasting period.”
