    This market covers a large area, and just about everything imaginable is sold here, of course bargaining is the name of the game!

    Parking is pretty hard to find, but if you go off the road to the side streets, there are plenty parking lots for 20tl all day and easy to park. Lots of entertaining, shopping and food options.

    I would like to Express my gratitude for such a beautiful and well-groomed zoo. I have heard a lot of good reviews and many people recommended me to visit this beautiful zoo. And now I can easily confirm for sure that this is a great place to spend time with family and friends.
    I went there with my friends and from the very beginning I have noticed very warm hospitality.
    All the working staff ( men at the checkout, security, workers in the garden) were so nice and kind. I honestly admit that this is very pleasing.
    I didn't expect the zoo to be so big and beautiful. A lot of greenery, trees, flowers. Everything is so beautiful and tastefully decorated. The very style of this zoo is very carefully invented. Many thanks to the Creator of this zoo. Special thanks to the workers who, despite this heat, so carefully clean and clean all the corners of the zoo.
    Thank you for your attention to the animals themselves. All animals are very, very clean, well-groomed and most importantly well-fed.
    I have been to many zoos and I can say with certainty that I enjoyed it immensely.
    I highly recommend visiting this beautiful zoo to everyone !

    Holiday feel on the coats but no beach. More a business district now. Lots of hotels, restaurants and bars but not over develped. Nice for a walk and a casual drink/dinner

    I had chance to visit many car museums in Europe. Key museum is definetely worth visiting. It is far from downtown but if you are interested by cars, you should visit.

    This shopping mall has a large outdoor courtyard, covered with palm trees and the shops and restaurants are surrounding this courtyard. So, it can be considered in that respect an outdoor shopping mall and it feels much safer in these covid days. As even winter is mild in Izmir, it's my favorite shopping center in the city for all seasons, especially since covid.

    It's true that many shops have closed but the essential ones and couple of famous brands are still open. All the restaurants at the entrance level offer both an outdoor and indoor sections.

    This clock tower image is all over the city. It was a must see to walk over there. It's near the beautiful walk along the water.

    It is all about shopping and spending money. All famous shops and brands are available here. All fast food restaurants and cafe are in the same shopping center. Easy reach by public transport IZBAN with Esbaş stop.
    Visited during one day of bayram holiday and ... full. Most of people wore mask but some not. Many shops have empty disinfectant so it is just merely a decoration :(

    First of all, entrance to the art exhibition is for free. Holdings are nice and worthy to give a visit.

    Konak Square with its beautiful, yet small Clock tower in the middle is the very central spot of Izmir.
    At one side of it is the Kemaralti bazaar, while on the other is the Kordonbeyu sea side promenade. It's a must see for every visitor, and a local's meeting place.

    It was pretty small and right around Kemeralti area, streets were small, but we did luckily found a parking right cross from the area in the small streets. 25tl per person was too much for this place in my opinion.

    The exterior of the church may seem simple and you may even walk pass it. The entrance can be easily missed where it's a small beige gate which you have to buzz yourself in, so keep a look out for it. The opening hours are quite short too so the best time to go will be during the early afternoon. Inside the church, you can feel the sereneness and peacefulness while admiring the architecture and murals all around the ceiling, walls and pillars. Worth a quick visit!

    Definitely worth to visit, it is an outdoor mall with nice shops, restaurant options are like in the regular malls, but they have plenty outdoor sitting cafes. Ikea is a full size and big Migros and Media Mart is there a s well, easy parking, easy to find the place.

    Really nice beach with lots of sun loungers (20 liras/person) and beautiful sea with clean water and not big waves. The only disadvantage is that it's a bit narrow and not enough place to run/play games...
