This is a Blog excerpt from our three week trip Immediately inland from the Konak Square is the Kemeralti Bazzar - this is a huge warren of winding streets lined with shops and stalls selling everything that the people of Izmir might need; food, shoes, shirts, more shoes, jewelry, even more shoes and pants, … Kemeralti is NOT a tourist...

Typical touristy items BUT this is a real market for the locals so you if you want to immerse yourself - go.

It's located in Kemeraltı Market and really close to Çankaya metro station( just 2 minute walk away) You can find a lot of touristic stuff such as Hookah, traditional clothes, magnets, vintage etc. Unfortunately Izmir has poor variety of postcard, you may be dissappointed about that. Whatever you do don't leave Han Bazaar without drinking a Turkish Coffee.

Izmir is a large and at this time of the year very hot and dry. Our taxi ride was 10 euro which is a standard price and they do carve up the traffic in a busy and congested city. We had no trouble getting there and moved around the bazaar easily looking at items repeated in many shops. The bazaar... More

I had a great 4 hours wondering around soaking up the vibe of the bazaar. I sat for a quite chi in a side street and then found a fab place for lunch. There was only one dish on the menu and that was kebab, bread, slald, tomatoes, chillies and ayran all for 25tl. Worth every penny. I did not... More

We were on a cruise, and decided to walk around the port area. After about an hour or so, we asked a taxi to take us to "a bazaar" and ten minutes later and 10 Euros we ended up here. It was amazing. To explore the place would have taken hours or even days which we did not have. In... More

We made a day trip to Izmir for the first time from our holiday base (Gumuldur) on the coast. We had read about what a must see the Kizlaragasi Han Bazaar was if one was visiting Izmir. However, from our experience we have a greatly different opinion of the place. Yes there were a few interesting shops but many were... More

Interesting place to see locals shopping, eating, having a drink or going to pray. Just get yourself lost in the maze of alleys and observe.

Just less flashy. Carpets, clothes, small things to give as presents, tourist-y stuff - all ina closed building (with a nice atrium too). Recommended for the vibe and experience, NOT if you have been to IStanbul already.
