About Tel Aviv-Yafo
One the world’s most ‘hipster’ cities with a wave of bars, luxury hotels, gourmet restaurants, boutique stores, and lively nightclubs, Tel Aviv is unlike its Middle-Eastern neighbors. Blessed with breezy Mediterranean weather, the beaches are exactly what you need on a city break. Swim the warm waters, lay on the soft sand, and walk along the coast from one beach to the next, while stopping for a quick cocktail or a mezze-style meal at one of the many restaurants that dot the area. In Tel Aviv, people are most likely to check out what you’re wearing. The city is home to a thriving fashion scene spearheaded by top designers.Best weather is May-June for beaching.
How To Reach
Book a Package Tour
It's incredible to walk in an oasis that King David and other Biblical luminaries visited in the Old Testament of The Bible. Hikes in Ein Gedi are relatively strenuous, so make sure you are adequately prepared. The waterfalls are beautiful and you can get your feet wet in the Nahal David, Ein Gedi or two other streams. Wildlife watchers will enjoy seeing the little rock hyrax, birds, ibex and gazelles.

We ended up being in Israel on Tel Aviv's biggest night...White Night! The whole city comes alive on their annual White Night with hundreds of free, outdoor concerts and performances until 4am in the morning. Hundreds of thousands of people lined the streets to celebrate, drink and have fun. Who cares about John Legend when you have White Night in one of my favorite places in the world???
