Registered author(s):

    Turkey is a vast and varied land boasting incredible landscapes and natural beauties bordered by three different seas. Site of some of the world’s most ancient civilizations, as intricate and colorful as the pattern of an oriental carpet, Turkey is one of the top destinations of the Mediterranean region. Myth and legend interwoven with the history and the heritage of six civilizations shape the background of this vast land. Although Turkey is a newcomer to the tourism industry, compared to other Mediterranean destinations, she has experienced a rapid tourism development in the course of time. In other words the tulip is bloomed. In this vein, the objective of the paper is to make a short summary of tourism development in the country and to analyze the tourism industry in the first decade of the new millennium. The paper ends with a discussion of trends and shortcomings of tourism development in Turkey.
