Turkish resort town attracts Norwegian elderly tourists
Oya Demirel, a World Disability Union (WDU) commissioner and a Norwegian health tourism firm official for Turkey told state-run Anadolu Agency that Göcek, an Aegean Muğla town, features an ideal destination for elderly tourists.
“70 percent of Norway’s population is made up of senior citizens,” she said.
She cited the region’s potential as a hub for disabled tourists, saying that it could become a top destination in the area if UN criteria on accessibility were met.
Tourism professional Metin Parça lauded the town with its natural bay, airy atmosphere and amenities.
“We will welcome 26 families of a total 56-person group,” he said.
