Touristic facilities in the southwestern Turkish resort town of Muğla, which completed all preparations as part of the new COVID-19 measures, began hosting the first groups of Ukrainian tourists who say they feel safe in the country and are mesmerized by the beauty of its Mediterranean and Aegean coasts.
The first group of tourists from Ukraine, a total of 350 vacationers, landed in Muğla on April 28. The group will spend about two weeks in the tourist hot spots in Fethiye and Marmaris.
All kinds of measures were taken in the region against the spread of COVID-19 and it was ensured that there will be no compromises in the facilities. Visitors in the hotels and blue-flagged beaches are allowed to enter the sea and the pool and move around in sunbathing areas in accordance with the social-distancing rules.
“I especially admire Marmaris. I spend my holidays in Muğla and I love it,” Tatyana Skrayvien, one of the tourists, told Anadolu Agency (AA) while praising the measures taken against COVID-19. “We feel safe here.”
Natali Suveyt, another Ukrainian tourist, said they chose Muğla for a pleasant holiday. “This is my seventh visit to Turkey. It leads among the countries that are fighting against the coronavirus.”
