The westernmost city in Turkey, Izmir is just off the Aegean Coast and offers an ideal mix of beaches and city culture. From the famous Clock Tower to the Ottoman Government Mansion on Konak Square , there's plenty of unique architecture to discover in the city centre. The Izmir Bazaar is a famous market just behind the main square, which is a great place to pick up some bargain souvenirs or Turkish rugs. If you visit in the summer, you can attend the city's international arts festival, Izmir International Fair, which is the country's oldest tradeshow and hosts a range of events from art to dance. It's alos great to take a stroll along the promenade on the city's waterfront, which is lined with cafes and restaurants.
