A CASE STUDY OF PERCEPTIONS, EXPERIENCES AND RELATIONS OF BRITISH PERMANENT TOURISTS WITH THE BOST COMMUNITY IN DIDIM, TURKEY
This qualitative study aims to examine the perspectives of British permanent tourists settled in Didim, Turkey. The study uses semi-structured interviews to explore and understand the motivations, and interactions of this community with the host society in the location. The initial findings were that the views of the community were largely positive partly due to the secular nature of Turkish society. The study found that those who were best able to survive in Didim were pensioners deriving their income from the UK. However, these permanent tourists do not generally integrate with their hosts due to issues such as language.
