Where are you staying? When you say not many, you make it sound as though they are few and far between ... I agree there are fewer tourists in general these days in Gumbet (and elsewhere) but the Brits still arrive by the plane full. I think the increase in AI hotels has had an effect as well' people stay in their hotel much more.

Also, Turkey prices have increased of late and people are looking for new and cheaper places to visit ... but those who love Gumbet will still keep going back. Hope you have a great time there.

I'm not surprised at all.!

Every year there seems to be less and less tourists.

My friend has not long returned from three weeks in Bitez and said she has never known it so quiet.

Which is at odds with some of the apartments and hotels which are completely booked between now and the middle of September. The Tropicana being one such hotel. We'll be upping the numbers next week when a huge party of us arrive for a week of fun in the Gumbet sun ;)

I actually passed comment about this last night, when I was looking at smilies f/b page, there seemed to be plenty of empty seats.

personally I think it is because of the drink prices,

but we'll still be there this sept.

It's true that prices have gone up over the last few years, especially drinks prices ... and there are now more AI hotels so people stay put in the hotels. Most of the bars and hotels will tell you that they are quieter these days ..... some of them closed earlier than normal last year because it was so quiet and they had not had a really good season.

I agree brits in the minority this year we' re in siesta at the moment and all the bars shops etc doing very little trade the shop keepers dont even hassle u to come in they're cutting the prices before the tourists do. China town guys that we know well told us trade down 30% so far. Agree AI does seem to keep people in thier hotels. Its sad to say but i feel gumbet a bit played out and i loved the place,

Bearing in mind the plane prices .. looking at flights for August coming up at £470 (with extra leg room) day light robbery!!!

Fly to the states cheaper than than.
