Went to the " famed" Kemeralti bazaar expecting something a bit like the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul..but boy was I mistaken!Yes, there are streets and alleyways crammed with any and every type of ( cheap) clothing,leather goods, " jewellry", ceramics, kitchenware, wedding outfits, mobile phone covers, nuts, spices, soaps, fish mongers and kebap shops, but there is no real charm...

it's a must visit, the old town labyrinth like always a great place to get lost in.. follow the smell of spices, food, coffee and tea, from one alley to another, i'm sure you will love it.. (and don't worry you will not get lost!) and get into the closed bazar with all the turkish handcrafts/ delights... i'd go back... More

Just take a few hours and stroll around this market. There is nothing what you wouldn't find there. It's the market for the locals, so luckily not to many tourist traps. Lively, busy and great to discover. Worth seeing!

I am afraid but I was rather disappointed about the market: it is true that is large but mainly provide clothing and leather and fabrics. I could hardly find any "interesting" (for me) bits as spices and nuts or Itznik pottery or carpets. Lots of original fakes though! Not what I was looking for unfortunately

The biggest bazaar in İzmir. At the same time the oldest bazaar too. There are some historical places. Especially Hisar mosque, kızlarağası han, çakaloğlu han, Arap han. Etc. Some other mosques and hammams are waiting for your visiting.

You will like it by all means. Don't forget to go to kizlaragasi han to drink some coffee or lemonade. Walk over the whole kemeralti not only on the main streets, you will find evetything in very good prices. You will love people, they are very friendly and nogle
