Alsancak district is the area for those who do not want to go far from the port. On the other hand, it is the most crowded residential quarter. With its elegant and exquisite shops Alsancak offers favorable shopping centers including Turkey and the World’s top stores. Besides shopping in Alsancak one may find the opportunity to eat any kind of cuisine in stylish restaurants, cafes and brasseries.
Kordonboyu (the coastline area) is as well placed in Alsancak. The nice view has been the theme to many poems and lyrics throughout history. It is the place to visit with its blue bay, green coastline, sunset and the ships hurriedly coming to the bustling port and taking off again to disembark their passengers and welcome a new group embracing the world warmly.
