Visiting Kemeraltı Bazaar is a MUST in Izmir. Located between Konak and Alsancak, the Basar can easily reached by public transportation (Metro or Trambay). Interesting place at any time of the day/evening, huge and often crowded. You will find everything what you’re looking for, even...More
The market is almost like a town on its own and once you are in believe me it’s different world believe it or not it’s true even for a 5 years old daughter, we just loved the place. Food, shopping, coffee and much more. Very...More
Kemeralti a must visit, while in İzmir. It is huge so if visiting be prepared to spend a good part of your day. Kemeralti has the exciting buzz you expect to find in a Turkish bazaar. You can find anything in this market at very...More
Couldn't find anything and it is not as friendly to navigate as the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. I actually think that I lost my time by going there. Good thing is that I had to go through it anyway because I wanted to go to...More
I've been to so many markets in Turkey, including Istanbul's Grand Bazaar - this is one of my favourites. If you're only looking for fake Gucci jeans and handbags, you may be a little disappointed (although you can ferret those things out), but what you...More
I wouldn’t recommend going in summer beCause I felt myself melting into the tarmac.
There is minimum car parking. The multilevel carpark was closed it was overflowing.
I drove around for 45 min couldn’t find a park. Drove back to the hotel and caught a...More

I have stayed at Hilton, but hated it. There is Swiss Hotel, but it is a little pricey. I do not know other hotels in Konak. Antalya is very far, so is Fethiye. Four day is not enough. In fact, four day wasn't enough for us just for the city of Izmir. Fethiye is about 8 hours round trip from Izmir. Antalya is about 12 hours round trip from Izmir, and Pamukkale is about 6 hours round trip. I have not been to Pamukkale.
I would suggest Fethiye because,I have been to Antalya and it is so hot and dry.
I like Fethiye better. Its quieter than Antalya and nature is beautiful. I have not been to Pamukkale as there isn't much to see besides the natural formations of rocks. I hope this helps.
For reference; We have rented a taxi to Ephesus in Selcuk which is about an hour away. This trip has cost us 600 Turkish Lira round trip.
