High number of Arab tourists expected in Bursa during Eid al-Fitr


A high number of Arab tourists are expected to arrive in the north-western province of Bursa during the upcoming Eid al-Fitr (Ramadan Feast).

Speaking to the Anadolu Agency (AA), an official with the Association of Turkish Travel Agencies (TURSAB), Mehmet Akkus said that 80 percent of all hotel rooms in Bursa have been booked for Eid al-Fitr and 80 percent of all reservations came from Arab tourists.
We expect a very large number of Arab tourists in Bursa between the Eid al-Fitr and the Feast of Sacrifice, Akkus stressed.
Arab tourists are interested in purchasing residences and making investments, Akkus also said.
Eid al-Fitr will begin on Sunday.
