Transport

Find info on hitchhiking at Hitchwiki.

Metro is hard to blackride, buses impossible (driver will ask you for tickets) though in both cases some local may offer you the ticket, quite expensive too (1.80TL). Check Izmir website for more details: http://www.izmir.bel.tr/en/Ulasim.asp Find out a bus stop on a map on a web-map then go to the nearest bus stop and ask people which bus goes there. Or ask directly from drivers.

Accommodation

Find info on hosp ex at Couchwiki.

Hospitality exchange community is quite big and also last minute request should work pretty well. Ege University has a large campus in Bornova. Either try the benches or put up a tent in a discrete spot hidden with bushes. Also, there are many members of hospitality networks.

Meet fellow travellers on hospitality exchange networks: Trustroots, BeWelcome


Food

Find info on dumpster diving at Trashwiki.

Food in the streets isn't generally expensive, especially simple one.

Busking

Places

Not as common and frequented by westerners as Istanbul, Izmir is a good location for busking since you won't probably have so much concurrence from foreigners as from locals. Any good spot with people passing by is good for money but the only one where police won't tell you anything is Kibris sehitleri st, that is actually also the main commercial and most transited pedestrian street that means you can easily make good performance and money. The parks along the sea (behind Kibris) could also be a good alternative for both juggling busking and meet nice people

Law-Police

It is not legal any street performance in the whole city, you need permits that you probably won't get from the municipality and police (Zabita) will probably stop you, ask for your documents and so on almost everywhere (e.g. Konak) except Kibris Sehitleri..Though unless you are Turkish, since NONE of them will ever speak english, unable to communicate they´ll just tell you to stop and won´t fine you nor annoy you more. Without a clear reason in Kibris st that Zabita pass beside you and just watch bad at you without telling you anything, so unless you want to stay for a longer period, change places etc don´t move from there.
