Tourism sector in Turkey has shown great progress since 1980. Contribution of foreign money acquired from tourism while the country was having economic problems helped to decrease foreign debt and unemployment. The data showing the number of tourists coming to the country, income earned from tourists, amount of expenditure per tourist and the share of tourism from GDP, investment and exports, indicate that tourism is one of the most leading sectors in Turkish Economy from 1980's onward. It will be possible for Turkey to have a great share from international tourism sector earnings if more competitive and sustainable policies are implemented in the future; and this will increase social welfare in the possible shortest period. The aim of this study is to determine the general situation of tourism in Corum province of Turkey and to analyze its tourism possibilities and facilities.
