Israeli's Love Their Turkey! For Vacation That Is...

Turkey seems to be the prime spot for Israeli's to "get away from it all," beating even the United States (which came in second place).

(Globes Online) Turkey was the most popular holiday destination for Israelis, with 195,000 visitors in August 2007, 15% of total outgoing travelers, the Israel Airports Authority reports. The second most popular destination was the US, with 151,000 travelers, followed by France with 119,000, and Italy and Germany with 93,000 each.

Israel and Turkey already have very friendly relations with each other, so it should not be a surprise to see Israeli's choosing this Arabian nation as a favorite vacation spot.

Note: If Israel were physically closer to the US, I wonder if these numbers would actually change?
