It is historically an important place but too crowded. You if you are planning to visit it, just get ready. It will be tough.

For those who have travelled around Turkey and the Middle East before, there is nothing new/interesting in Kemeralty. It's a place for "fresh" tourists.

Nice market if you want to buy some souvenirs, I find shop owners will like you shop at you own pace than Grand Bazzar in Istanbul, good price with better atmosphere, don’t forget go upstairs for those antiques shops.

When you visit İzmir, first you must see Kemeraltı Bazaar. You can discover many things on narrow streets. Full of ancient buildings. You can shop safely. And also you must visit Kızlarağası Han. Full of joy in Kemeraltı.

Stumbled upon the market by pure accident, wondering about after visiting the Clock-Tower. Bargains galore with so much on offer. Mostly fake brand names, but, hey who cares if you can buy 5 fakes for the price of 1 original. Plenty of nooks and crannies...More
