Two colleagues of mine came back from a road-trip they did last week to Turkey, they visited Antakia, Kapadokia, Iskandaroun and Mersin. So when I asked them how it was, they both replied: “it was.. nayce” Like the word nice barely kicked off from their mouth.
Anyway, we all know that Istanbul is a very nice place to visit, so is Mar Maris (for beach, night life and outdoors adventure lovers). So not all Turkey is “okay” like the above mentioned cities, and because they only went for 5 days so they had to be not far away from the borders.
Nevertheless, they said there weren’t much to do there, except for shopping, and at the end of the day all groups sort of end up going to the same places and doing the same thing for fun. Boat party (a lousy one apparently), and a cave party (traditional wedding, they said that one was cool), some shopping, leather catwalk (where they bought leather jackets, which I'm not so sure they were for good prices), etc...
However, one of my colleagues added something interesting while telling me about her trip, she said they ran into so many Lebanese, everywhere they go, they would see Lebanese people there, and all came with different tours.
Question: How come, Turkey has so many Lebanese tourists visiting it(now that visa is no longer required between both countries), but on the other hand, we don’t see that many Turkish tourists in Lebanon? I did not see any, did you?
Finally, I promise you to write a post where I tell you about how you can be a tourist in your own Lebanon (meanwhile check this page I did), everyone knows I am not the obsessed blinded patriotic person who keeps saying: “Lebanon is the most beautiful country in the world”, however, I know Tourism when I see it, and I can see the amount and diversity in activities that can be done in Lebanon and they can be spread over a month doing different things on a daily basis. #justsayin
