Many tourists will find that the best way to sightsee in Izmir is to simply take a walk around the city centre and the Konak Square (Konak Meydani), as well as the waterfront Kordon and the coast, where some very pleasant natural beaches await. For impressive views, take a ride on the Asansor elevator, or onboard one of the popular Teleferic cable cars. Family attractions in the city are plentiful within the Culture Park (Kultur Park Alani) and include the city's zoo, while the Izmir Bird's Paradise within the Cigli area is also likely to be of interest.
