Antalya remains the most sought after destination in summer
In May 2013, at the invitation of Prestige Tours and HAPPYşor, I had the opportunity to test all inclusive services in one stay in Antalya. On this occasion, I flew for the first time with a charter flight operated by Air Bucharest.
I skeptically left in this infotrip and didn't really know what to expect. But it was a very nice week, well above expectations and I understood how it is with "all inclusive". I visited over 40 of hotels of 4 and 5 stars in the company of over 40 of wonderful people, from the Romanian travel agencies.

No wonder Antalya remains the most sought after destination in summer. Happy Tour announces that 67% of the holiday requests received include Antalya among the options and will send no less than 7000 of Romanians in a stay in Turkey this summer.
Since the 2011 year, Happy Tour operates 4 weekly charter flights from Bucharest to Antalya and this spring, to meet the growing demand for this destination, the company has decided to introduce a new weekly race together with Prestige Tours, the tour operator of the Happy Tour group.
Stays in Antalya start from 400 euros / person / 7 nights and can even get to 3.500 euro / person at 5 resorts ultra-all-inclusive stars Antalya is preferred by Romanian tourists traveling with their family, opting for all inclusive or even ultra all inclusive services.
In addition to Antalya, Romanian tourists have chosen to spend their summer holidays in destinations such as the Greek islands, especially Mykonos, Santorini, Corfu, Crete, but also the Balearic Islands, Palma de Mallorca or Tenerife.
Returning to Antalya, I really liked the Turkish policy of tourism. They have changed the road infrastructure, created this typical "all inclusive" service, encourage tourism through facilities offered to hoteliers and travel agencies, encourage the domestic production of vegetables, fruits, beverages, etc. It is not something new, but they have a much more practical and long-term thinking compared to the authorities and hoteliers in Romania. Maybe we should learn more from them.
