[[File:View on Ayvalik.JPG|thumb|330px|Çınarlı (centre) and Saatli (right) Mosques, both former Greek Orthodox churches]] '''Ayvalık''' is a city in [[Northern Aegean]], [[Turkey]]. It’s located on the southern coast of the Gulf of Edremit (part of Aegean Sea), across from the eastern coast of [[Greece|Greek]] island of [[Lesvos]], opposite its capital ([[Mytilene]]).
==Understand==
Ayvalik’s ancient name was ''Kydonia''. Although both Kydonia and Ayvalik means ‘the place of quince’, the city is rather known for (and indeed surrounded by) a seemingly endless forest formed by olive trees. Olive has been important to Ayvalik in all ages, as it has been revered by both former Greek residents and present Cretan ‘immigrants’ (who live in Ayvalik for at least three generations).
Ayvalik is one of two bigger towns in [[Northern Aegean|northern Aegean Region]] which has achieved to conserve its traditional architecture (to a high degree, that is), with the other such town being [[FocaFoça]], which is located about 60 km north of [[Izmir]].

===By plane===
The nearest airport is Edremit Korfez Airport(EDO) which is 40 km distance and has direct flights from Istanbul and Ankara.A larger and international airport, Izmir's Adnan Menderes Airport(ADB) is 175 km away.
===By train===
The nearest station is [[Balikesir]], on the line between [[Izmir]] (Basmane station) and [[Bandirma]] on the Sea of Marmara (with fast ferry connections to [[Istanbul]]). There are two trains in each direction every day except Tuesday, when only one of the trains runs.
==Get around==
Local buses run frequently from Alibey Island(Cunda) to the center and from Ali Cetinkaya to Camlik districts.
As a more comfortable and faster option, "Dolmus" taxis run from Alibey Island(Cunda) and from Ali Cetinkaya to 41 Evler districts. There is also a ferry operating between Alibey Island(Cunda) and Ayvalik town center in the summer months.

==Buy==
Everything related to '''olive''': Olive oil, brined olives, castile soap…
