Re: Alcohol ban in Antalya!

If it's exactly as described i.e. no booze in the street, public places etc that's one thing

However if " outside" means outside tables at bars etc that's a massive difference


Without wanting to come across as a pisshead, imho the day the Turks ban booze is the end of their tourist industry from the West

Re: Alcohol ban in Antalya!

True but there's a balance

A sensible mum and dad sitting over a couple of glasses of wine with the 3 kids having dinner- turns into 5 lost tourists to Turkey

Didn't see you edited.

Do you really think RTE wants tourists from the West? Why is halal tourism on the increase?

Re: Alcohol ban in Antalya!

I reckon you're 101% on the money with your theory. Whisper it quietly though as some have blinkers on

The country gradually moving in such a direction was a factor in us moving on- not the actual changes to booze sales ( I am not a big drinker, my wife's tee total) but all that comes with such a slide towards fundamentalism
