I will mention the cost breakup at the end.Well, I reached Izmir on December 23 2018 where I had a stay in In- House hostel Izmir which was in the downtown area. Izmir is considered to be the most modern city in Turkey with a lot of student population. At the same time it is one of the oldest with 3000 years of recorded history. On 24th morning, I took a train to Ephesus which was like an hour from Izmir downtown. Ephesus is one of the ancient Greek cities built around 1000 BC. It was amazing to relive 2500 years old history where all the Greek and Roman ruins have been preserved four tourists. I had a nice Turkish breakfast in Ephesus and also met interesting people during the train journey. Attaching some of the pictures from Ephesus and the train journey.
