After a nice fly, it was time to rest wings and explore the country so I checked in this beautiful and sprawling airport of Izmir which is located 18 KMs southwest to the city center in the Gaziemir district which I saw is quite well connected with modes of transportation like buses, airport shuttles, trains, etc connecting to the city centre and other major points.
I feel delighted that I got a chance to explore inexplicable beauty of places in Kusadasi which was an amazing drive from the Izmir Airport en route to my Hotel Korumar Check-in. After a long journey what one looks for is relaxing leisure which undoubtedly was hosted by Hotel Korumar for its guests.
