Antalya one of world's top 5 destinations - UN

  Date posted: 4th of December 2014

Turkey's southern resort is one of the most popular tourist spots on the globe.  The UN's World Tourist Organisation has announced the top five destinations on the planet: Paris, London, New York, Antalya and Singapore.

Experts say the explosive growth in Turkish tourism is due to favourable prices, increased travel links and the south coast's settled weather.

An unprecedented 1 billion people travelled across an international border this year, according to the World Travel and Tourism Council. That's one out of seven people on the planet.

Travel used to be reserved just for the wealthy, but as developing countries grow more and more people are able to afford leisure trips.
