This place is a very funny/scary place in Izmir, could be like a maze with stores, restaurants, cafes and a mosque, you can find all type of souvenirs so you must be ready to negotiate prices

Great place for shopping and if you like bargaining it's a shopper paradise. Well worth a visit is the central plaza where there are restaurants and cafes galore. Try the kebab cooked on the open wood fire, it's delicious

You're bound to get lost – even locals do – but losing your way and coming across unexpected treasures is part of the bazaar's attraction.

Great small shops, nice coffee shops for Turkish coffee or tea, eat the local kebab and just enjoy the atmosphere. Fantastic area with a lot of options, however look out for cheap Chinese copies.

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
