About Izmir

The vibrant port city of Izmir has long been both a buzzing commercial centre and a popular traveller destination for both foreign and domestic tourists. Visitors will love strolling along the broad, leafy Kordon, taking in the view of the water, stopping for a sip of traditional Turkish tea and soaking up some of the never-ending sunshine. With sweeping bays, thermal springs, bustling streets and picturesque beaches, Izmir really does have it all and is an absolute must for anyone travelling through Turkey.
