Turkey does not have strong public relations machinery in the United States and needs to do more to attract American tourists, according to Conrad Istanbul General Manager Asaad M. Farag.
�We just entertained an American couple who had won a free trip here in a draw at the Turkish pavilion in Orlando, a tourism promotion,� said Farag. �The wife initially had told her husband that they ought to give the trip to someone they don't like, but then of course they ended up loving it. They even took a city bus from the Sultanahmet and people were standing up to give the woman their seat; she said she had been treated like a princess as she had never been before in her life.� "
