Turkey is the everlasting paradise suited in the east and west; bringing Europe and Asia together. The country has become an international recognition, with important meeting and conventions (Tursab) being held in the country, there's no wonder why the economy is growing so fast. However, despite the ancient ruins, archaeological sites and the sandy beaches across the Mediterranean coast, Turkey has failed to keep tourist captivated and interested.

Other events which could have played a role are the bomb attacks that took place in 2006 and 2007 aimed at tourists; which resulted in authorities warning tourists to stay away especially in some places such as Antalya which is a well known Turkey tourist's destination. Lastly the cartoon crisis involving the Prophet Muhammad saw Turkey face greater slander.
