While the new coronavirus outbreak, which affects the whole world, continues, the tourism sector is preparing for the post-epidemic period.
Known around the world as a unique destination that offers a combination of fascinating nature and history, the Mediterranean resort city of Antalya is getting ready for the upcoming summer season by taking precautions against the virus.
Hotels in most popular touristic destinations including Kundu, Kadriye and Belek, rearrange venues around pools and restaurants, making sure the sun loungers and tables are places in accordance with the social distance rules.
Hotels around the city completely renewed the carpeted floor replacing it with antibacterial flooring and also covering the walls of the rooms with antibacterial wallpaper.
Some hotels have places thermal cameras at the entrance.
Turkey is preparing to launch an internationally recognized certification system for “coronavirus-free” touristic areas and facilities in order to help revive the industry, according to the tourism minister, who recently noted that domestic tourism could return to normal by late May.
Hosting the greatest number of hotels and 42% of the 1.2 million beds certified by the ministry across the country, the city attracts tourists from 193 countries.
While Antalya is one of the most important tourism destinations in the world with its beaches, bays, quality of service in its hotels, historical and cultural values, its inns are also a center of attraction.
