Not in Front of the Tourists by ROBERT CHESSHYRE
Turkey is the 'in' place for Britons to go in 1988: over 400,000 will be holidaying there this summer, twice as many as last year. But how much will they learn about
Turkey while they are there? Robert Chesshyre , author and ex-Observer foreign correspondent, travels through Turkey to discover the hidden cost of tourism.
He meets disgruntled tourists in Marmaris, a peasant in the hills who is lured to his first encounter of tourist gold, and international hotelier
Bent Poulson who confesses: 'It is sad but, you know, we hoteliers are spoiling the world'.
