Turkey is open to travellers seeking rich cuisine, culture and history with few COVID-19 restrictions. With code-sharing agreement between Turkish Airlines and Royal Brunei Airlines (RB), it is easy to make travel arrangements.
This was said by Turkish Ambassador to Brunei Darussalam Professor Dr Hamit Ersoy in his speech at the launch of ‘Turkish Culinary and Cultural Festival’ at the Radisson Hotel yesterday.
The ambassador said Turkish Airlines offers daily flights to Bangkok, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore while RB has direct flights to the same locations. With the code sharing agreement, travel arrangements for Brunei-based travellers can be easily made.
“We have six or seven government accredited travel agencies in Brunei arranging regular guided tours to Turkey, particularly during peak holiday months.
“I personally recommend visits during April to June for ideal climate as well as October and November just before the snow starts,” the ambassador said.
Attorney General Dato Seri Paduka Haji Ahmad bin Pehin Orang Kaya Laila Setia Bakti Diraja Dato Laila Utama Haji Awang Isa and Radisson Hotel General Manager Miriam Wolber were present.
The Turkish Culinary and Cultural Festival, held in conjunction with the 99th anniversary of the Proclamation of the Republic of Turkey, features delicacies prepared by Turkish Chef at the embassy Adem Can.
Visitors can also enjoy Sufi Ney music and witness water marbling ‘Ebru’ and gold ornamentation ‘Tazhib’ art.
