Turkey has become one of the cheapest countries for vacationers due to the depreciation of the Turkish lira.
The economic crisis in Turkey is deepening every day. Economists point to Turkey's monetary policy, especially in the last two years, as the reason for this situation. Although the ruling party has adopted the rhetoric that "interest is the cause of inflation", economists believe the opposite. According to experts, the main cause of inflation is the increase in risks in the economy. Budget deficits, setbacks in social and political life, relations with neighbors and other countries and many other things can increase this risk.
To summarize, according to experts, our country has made the opposite of the economic moves it should have made in recent years and the depreciation of the Turkish lira has reached a historic level. As a result, the Turkish lira has fallen to very low levels against the currencies of developed countries. While this has put citizens living in Turkey in an economic predicament, the situation is quite the opposite for foreign citizens. In fact, Turkey is now one of the cheapest and most popular vacation destinations. Let's look at the details together.
The Post Office, one of the UK's post office services, has ranked the cheapest vacation destinations for its citizens.
