The popularity of Marmaris as a holiday destination just keeps growing and growing. Dalaman airport has released figures of visitor numbers for 2014, the final figure for the year of those visiting the districts of Marmaris and the surrounding areas was 1.65 million tourists.
Approximately 700,000 of these visitors were British, 200,000 Russian, and over 30,000 from Arab countries.
The Marmaris office of TURSAB (Association of Turkish Travel Agencies) announced that they were very pleased with the 2014 tourist visitors and it has had a positive impact on the area. The figures also show an increase of up to 12% of German tourists, a 2% increase from Britain Denmark and Poland, and a striking increase of 30% visiting from Arab countries (mostly from Jordan and Lebanon).
The main attraction to those visiting from countries such as Lebanon and Jordan is the vast richness of natural, historical and archaeological sites within easy reach of the Marmaris area.

      Trip to Marmaris is meant for everyone. You will not face any sort of problem with your 1- year old kid in Marmaris. The hotels at Marmaris have provisions of child- care. These hotels have trained staffs, who can make all arrangements to provide your child with comfortable stay.

      When you go for cruising, you can avail customized accommodations in gulets, which offer safe and enjoyable experience to your child.

    I never thought that I would have the opportunity to swim with dolphins in the open water. I got this opportunity at Marmaris when I visited there in March, this year. My two American friends and I had decided to make our vacation different and we decided to explore Marmaris as the best Turkey destination within our reach.
    We together had thoroughly enjoyed our vacation through Jeep Safari, taking traditional Turkey’s bath, shopping at the local market and playing in Aquadream Waterpark.
    However, along with that, the most remarkable experience was the week- long sea voyage by a the luxury cruise that allowed us to have a closer look of Mediterranean Sea and off course the opportunity to swim with dolphins was amazing. For us, the Marmaris is the best Turkey destination.

    I bet that you will never feel bore once you visit this wonderful part of Turkey. I visit the area whenever I get some leisure time. Last year, I visited Marmaris with my family and they also echoed that the city is the best Turkey destination.
    Turtle beach was the best playground for my kids and we have spent a lot of time there. The local market offered huge opportunity to my wife to buy several things for our relatives and friends.
    We booked a villa this time, and we were quite impressed by their hospitality with world-class accommodation and delicious food. That is why people call the region as the best Turkey destination.

    I visited Turkey several times, but never got the time to visit Marmaris. However, this time I got the opportunity to get mesmerized by the natural beauty of Marmaris, as it the best Turkey destination.
    I took two-week off from my work for this vacation and that was one of the most remarkable foreign trips for me. As suggested by a local friend, I have chosen blue cruise to enter the area and was enthralled by natural beauty of Mediterranean Sea.
    After the wonderful gulet ride, I booked a hotel room that was very close to the sea and a large swimming pool in the middle. Overall, the experience I got from Marmaris was top-notch and I will call the spot as the best Turkey destination.

    I heard a lot from my friends about Turkey who visited the place occasionally for their business. I decided to visit Marmaris, as I heard that this is the best Turkey destination in the region. According to my plan, I made my trip last January and this was really an amazing experience for me.
    One of the best things was the gulet ride that I had thoroughly enjoyed for a whole week and obviously would recommend it for every one. Apart from this, I bought a lot of gifts including antiques for home decoration and a few carpets for my friends. I will never forget the natural beauty of Marmaris as the best Turkey destination that will definitely knock my mind to visit the region again.

    This was my first visit in this part of Turkey and I enjoyed my trip thoroughly in the proper Marmaris, which is considered as the best Turkey destination. However, I also travelled its surrounding areas. I got a cab from Dalaman Airport easily that brought me to the main city of Marmaris. Since I was new to the city, I hired a local guide who helped me to a book villa for one week. However, staying in that villa was a home like experience and it offered me adequate comfort with full privacy.
    However, now I am thinking that a weeklong stay in Marmaris was not enough for me to enjoy and experience the charm of Marmaris. It is definitely the best Turkey destination for me.
