MUNICH – Germans love to vacation abroad. They want to go to the sea, to a finca in Mallorca or to the mountain peaks of neighboring Austria. Those with money will go far. Exotic countries such as Thailand, Japan and Vietnam are attracting visitors with particularly attractive offers this year.

This was mainly due to the depreciation of the Turkish lira, the banking association said. One euro in Turkey is currently worth around 2.63 euros.
