Never been to Izmir before but went to visit a family member who now lives and works there. Alsancak and all the surrounding areas is absolutely beautiful. What stood out for me was the cleanliness of the area, the variety of restaurants and bars, and wonderful shopping areas. I have never felt safer in a city before as I did in the surrounding areas of Izmir and Alsancak. The people are a lot more polite than the typical touristy areas, and the place buzzes at night, especially as it was Bayram when I visited. You just have to try the delicious waffles, in one of the speciality waffle cafes. I couldn't recommend the city itself and Alsancak highly enough, it's certainly worth a visit.
