Coup didn't affect the city...

Izmir is and always will be a staunch opponent of the AKP.

 

But I digress...

Izmir is beautiful & a nice place to study.  Its on the coast, has a moderate climate & very European.

It's more common to find a flat/apartment than a house in Izmir.  Unless you have a money tree (a magic tree that gives you money lol)...it's very expensive to have an independent house.

Balcova is a nice area.  I have friends that live in the area.  Guzelbahce to the West is close & Goztepe to the East as well.  Nice open area with natural thermal areas etc.  Very nice area for a family.  Plenty of things to do as well.

I have no idea.  Izmir is steadily becoming more expensive as ppl from Istanbul move down.  You can check here:

All your other things you will have to do the research.

Good luck!

The people are very cosmopolitan, looking at its history as a former Greek city and large sailing port, Izmir has been used to hosting many nationalities for hundreds of years. It also has several large universities and used to have a large NATO base.

Night life is great but, as in all cities, you need money to enjoy it.

It is a very dynamic place and a great place for young people. public transport is good and relatively cheap. The ferry network helps to keep people moving.

There are cockroaches in most Turkish cities. To a large extent it depends how clean the previous occupiers were, how clean you and your immediate neighbours are, and the age of your building. There are good products on the local market (but you need to take care if you have young children). I would not be overly concerned.

I've found a surprising way to stop cockroaches. I figured that Turkish apartments are basically concrete cubicles with no way for cockroaches to get in except through a hole somewhere. So I went to a do-it-yourself store to the plumbing section, and got some rubber drain plugs. I started keeping the kitchen sink, bathtub, and bathroom sink drains plugged at night, and the cockroach problem completely went away. They can't get in any more.

Back to the main topic... Izmir is an excellent place to go. Probably the two best cities in Turkey to be in are Izmir and Antalya. You will enjoy Izmir.

At least they're small here. I've seen them in some places in the world where they were over two inches long, and could fly! :oooh:

Woooow

The biggest ones in South Carolina Ken. Your country! East coasts

Oh my god. They are may be 4 inches!!!

Only one airport for civilians. The other is a military airport. There are both domestic and international terminals but it is the same airport.

I do not exactly know when I will come there. But, I want to know whether there is bus or metro (which is absolutely cheaper than the taxi) in the adnan airport that I could go somewhere in Balcova.

I will come to the registration in 5 September. I don't know where I should stay to spend less money. Then I should go to Adapazari to spend a few days in my wife's brother's house then return back there.

I also should rent a house since the dormitory does not plan to give room for married students.

There is an airport bus HAVAS which will take you to the city centre, from there you can get a bus to Balcova. If you do not have accommodation arranged when you get there you will be better staying in a cheap hotel in the city for a while anyway.

You mean in the city center the hotel or hostel is cheaper than balcova!?
