Historical travel and adventure travel probably aren’t what you are looking for if you come to Izmir, but just by taking a bus or catching a cheap flight, you can enjoy the great nightlife, shopping and ambiance of this city any time of the year.
Izmiri girls are considered to be the most beautiful in Turkey and it is a fact that the majority of models and actresses come from this city. Whether it is because they wear their makeup better or the mixture of Levanitne, Jewish, Greek, Turkish, Arab and Italian bloodlines is an argument that can be found along the waterfront bars of the Kordon. The fact of the matter is that when you walk down the street in Izmir, it is impossible to argue the point.
Traveling around the world is really about the knowledge you gain. Let me clear the air and explain that before visiting Gallipolli, I really had no idea what Anzac Day was since I’d never heard of it. I thought Anzac was a Turkish word.

The Philippines contains exotic cultures in an enchanted land. Every year millions of tourists travel to the Philippines. Some for business others for pleasure, but one thing is for certain. They keep coming back, and here’s a few reasons why.
I can’t say that I recommend Kardesler for the 12 Islands Cruise. Instead, if you want to take a day cruise, I think the way to go is to take the time to walk down the docks and talk with each boat man. Kardasler is the biggest and most touted boat company, virtually every hostel or hotel has a booking deal with them, including Yildirim Pension. They aren’t hurting for business and I think that alone has caused their idea of what it means to show customers a good time to change for the worse.
Designated a free imperial city in 1226, it became the capital of the Hanseatic League, a powerful confederation of 200 city-states banded together against pirates and warring nations to protect their trade in the Baltic.
