“A real oriental flavour”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

This is one of Izmir's well known landmarks. It is a fascinating place which takes a few hours to visit. It has all sorts of shops and small restaurants. At each street you discover something new. However, don't get lost (as I did) in this labyrinth of streets. I am sure you will find something to bargain and buy. It is a funny and worthwhile experience.

“historic market place”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Kemeraltı is the historic market place in Izmır. You can find everything from food to clothing, houehold to traditional items, jewellery and souveniers. Historic buildings and mosques. Very crowded during day time. All stores are closed on Sunday. One MUST see when visiting Izmır. If visiting for the first time, very easy to get lost in the labyrenth streets.

“wonderful shopping experience”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Kemeralti is right at the heart of Izmir, behind the Konak Metro station. It is very easy to get to and it is a fantastic shopping experience with a collection of traders in different streets.You could easily spend the day here as it is also full of delicious eateries.

“ALLADIN'S CAVE”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Kemeralti is the hub of Izmir. A truly Turkish and very colourful market, where you can purchase anything and everything, from clothes to jewellery, orniments, soft furnishings, houshold goods of all descriptions, super fresh food and pets. Brides to be will not believe the wedding gowns available, made to measure or alterered super fast, nor the cost-a fraction of European prices. The same goes for a gentleman's wardrobe, quality suites. If you want to shop, go to Kemeralti, whatever you want to buy, you will find it there. Best of all, it is also within walking distance of some of Izmir's top sights and near the sea where you can sip a cool drink and relax at one of the many quayside cafes after a day of shopping or browsing. A perfect way to soak in the atmospher of this wonderful city. A real must!!!!
