"Izmir, located within the boundaries of the Aegean region and known as the "pearl of the Aegean," is Turkey's third-largest city. Izmir, which has countless places to visit, is also popular among sea, sand, and sun vacationers with its coastal towns such as Seferihisar, Foca, Karaburun, Dikili, Cesme, Alacati, Ozdere, and Urkmez. Especially for those looking for more budget-friendly places than Turkey's most luxurious holiday resorts such as Antalya and Bodrum, Izmir is extra attractive and also succeeds in standing out with its lively nightlife and cultural-art events held throughout the year. To feel the historical texture of the city to the core and also buy souvenirs of local products, you should head to the Historical Kemeralti Bazaar. The Clock Tower, which has become the symbol of the city and has gained fame beyond the provincial borders, will greet you in all its glory in Konak Square, considered the city center."
