If you haven’t yet considered visiting Israel, this may be something you should think about. This the perfect place to visit during spring or summer, and while everywhere else is dealing with dreary, rainy days, you’ll be enjoying the warm sun in the Mediterranean.
Here are some of the incredible places to go and sights to see in Israel:
The Dead Sea
The Dead Sea is technically a salt lake, but at more than 300 metres deep, you’ll feel like you’re in the ocean. The fact that it’s so salty has meant that no life can exist here, although you’ll find plenty of other tourists slathering themselves in the mud (it’s incredible for your skin) and floating in the water.
The medicinal qualities of the Dead Sea date all the way back to biblical times, and both Herod the Great and King David visited the dead sea, while Egyptians used some of the balms during mummifications.
The Dead Sea offers many different activities for your holiday, including sports, day tours, and visits to historical sites like Qumran and Masada.
No visit to Israel is complete without a visit to Tel Aviv, and you’ll enjoy the stunning weather here, along with a culture unlike any other. This is a city that’s packed with cafes, restaurants, nightlife, fashion, and more. The beaches are stunning, while the urban city life offers you the best of both worlds, and the world class nightclubs, fine dining, boutiques, markets, and cafes will keep you coming back for more.
If you like to shop, you’ll be in heaven in Israel, with the latest trends in Hachasmal, and plenty of street fairs in Nachalat Binyamin to choose from.
If you’re bringing the kids, you’ll find plenty for them to do. The Safari Park in Ramat Gan is a must-visit, and you’ll also find some excellent museums, including Beit Hatfutsot, Eretz Israel Museum, and Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
Many people are unaware of how great the food is in Israel, and Tel Aviv has plenty of restaurants for you to choose from- regardless of your budget.
No matter what their religion, many people want to visit Jerusalem simply for the history and culture. You’ll find it cooler and dryer than mot parts of Israel, and while the summer days are perfect and hot, it can snow occasionally in winter here.
Jerusalem has excellent public transport, and you can easily get around via taxi, light rail, or bus to the many attractions here. This is one of the oldest cities in the world, and it’s also multi-cultural, with Muslims, Jews, and Christians all calling it home. The museums are truly exceptional, and you’ll also enjoy the architecture, shopping and food. Be sure to spend at least a few days in Jerusalem if you’re planning a trip to Israel- you won’t regret it!
