Ankara, Sep 16, 2021- Turkey’s Mediterranean province of Antalya has hosted more than six million foreign tourists so far this year, according to a local media report.

The number of tourists climbed by 202 per cent between January 1 and September 13, compared to the same period of the previous year, Xinhua news agency quoted the Hurriyet Daily report as saying on Wednesday.

The Antalya Governor’s office also revealed the data for the first 13 days of September, saying that the province hosted 757,461 tourists, seeing a 70 per cent year-on-year hike.

Popular with its sandy and sunny beaches, Antalya hosted approximately 3.5 million tourists due to the coronavirus pandemic.
