Numbers about Qatar - 32 thousand tourists

More than 32 thousand Qatari tourists visited Turkey last year . That is nearly 10 % of the Qatari population ! In spite of the security concerns  - the number of visitors is growing . Turkey saw the opportunity in the "halal" tourism  -  they have some hotels , resorts where women and men can enjoy the sea on segregated beaches /pools . These are also dry hotels ( no alcohol ) and are serving food suitable for Muslims .
Reading reviews on the net I find Turkish hospitality industry excellent ,generous , well -organised .From non-Muslims and Muslims as well - I read the same . If only the political situation was more balanced ! 2016 was especially bloody year  with the attack of the Istanbul airport& the Istanbul night club attack at New Year's Eve . Read about safety records here !
