The Culture and Tourism Minister explained When will tourism begin in 2020!

Culture and Tourism Minister  Mehmet Nuri Ersoy made important statements on NTV television. Providing information on outbreak measures in tourism, Minister Ersoy said: "We anticipate that there will be breaks in late May and early May. I think it will be possible to normalize towards the end of May. The movement will begin in domestic tourism towards the end of May."



We create an internationally recognized certification system for non-corona virus areas. The certification period will start at the facilities. Certificates will be issued to the facilities after taking the measures. We asked the big tour operators for their opinions on this subject and we will include those ideas in this system. After the corona virus process is over, I think Asian countries will come first. I strongly disagree with the criticism from TÜRSAB. There are 9500 travel agencies. How many brands can you count in these agencies? I have been in this industry since 85. I can count up to 100. If your brand is really valuable, your company is a well-established company. If you want to leave your company's debts to the old company and transfer your title and brand to another company you have established on your relative, you create many tourism supplier victims behind. This happened many times in the past, so transfer of documents was banned. Now, we said, let's let the transfer of the document as the sector needs it. We have to avoid art intention. We are working to eliminate the victimization in the industry. I don't see anything objectionable. I think your friends' problems have improved.



2020 Ramadan In Turkey2020 Ramadan In Turkey24.04.2020Ramadan is a holy month. It is the 9th month of the Muslim calendar that begins (and ends) with the appearance of the new moon. It is a month of fasting, communal prayer, introspection and reading the Koran. During this month, people refrain from food, drinks, smoking, sexual activity and any form of impure thoughts from sunrise till sunset. As soon as the sun sets, and after prayer, people gather to enjoy Iftar, the meal that breaks the fast and that usually starts with dates, sweetened milk or water, and apricots. Traditionally, just before sunrise, the Ramadan Drummers do their wake-up call to warn people that if they still want to eat a meal before dawn, now is the time. Some people, while religious, do not fast. These can be children, people who are too weak or old, pregnant women, or even travelers who are on a long journey. Usually, the fasting is then substituted by feeding the poor, volunteering or performing righteous works. Eating or drinking at the wrong time or being unable to fast due to illness, can be compensated with an extra day of fasting. The end of the Ramadan in Turkey and its fast is celebrated as Ramazan Bayramı – Şeker Bayramı or Sugar Feast. This is one of the most important religious holidays of the Muslim calendar. Allah now forgives past sins of those who have complied to the holy month. You will see children wearing new clothes, people exchanging gifts and delicious pastries, and lots of people on the road when the family is visited. These are probably the busiest days of the year in Turkey. The Sugar Feast marks the end of the holy Ramadan month. It is a three and a half day long celebration that starts with Sugar Feast Eve. Most administrations are closed in the afternoon when people start preparing food and baklava for the Sugar Feast. From this time on, expect traffic to become hectic all over Turkey. The next day, when Ramazan Bayramı starts, you’ll see people wearing their best clothes, and enormous amounts of sweets and traditional desserts such as baklava are consumed, hence the name Sugar Feast. People all over Turkey visit their relatives, honor the dead by visiting the cemetery, and children go door-to-door hoping for sweets or some money. You’ll hear people wishing you (or anyone else) İyi Bayramlar, which translates to have a good feast. People kiss older people’s hands as a sign of respect when they transfer their wishes. During the 3-day long Sugar Feast, all schools and official administrations are more
