Summary: Moving to Izmir, Turkey? Expats talk about what you need to know before moving to Izmir.

What do I need to know before moving to Izmir?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Izmir, they said:

"I know an expat who moved her stuff from abroad to Izmir by boat and that was costly. I would suggest just buying furniture here there's lot of designs and styles. Bring what you can from home in your suitcases and even if you have to pay an $50 bucks for an extra suitcase, it's worth it if the contents mean a lot to you. Find a neighborhood that feels comfortable and pleasant to you. It's important to like what you see when you look out the window and walk down the street. I like how all the apartments in my area are different architecturally and it's pleasing to the eye. The streets are tree-lined and it's not very noisy. So, make sure you feel good about the place you're in," explained one expat living in Izmir, Turkey.
