Israel’s largest metropolitan area, Tel Aviv, makes for a splendid holiday destination. The city is the hub of excitement for most Israelis and they think of it as their ‘New York’! If you are up for a Middle East adventure, Tel Aviv is bound to show prominently in your list. So here’s a list of all the important points and tips that will help you along in your Tel Aviv vacation.
When to Go
The best time to book your flights to Tel Aviv depends on a host of decisive factors, including the weather, the holidays and the cost involved. When it comes to weather Tel Aviv has a gentle Mediterranean climate that translates into making Tel Aviv into an all-season vacation retreat. The weather here is always pleasant, barring the summer mid-days as the sun gets a little too hot for comfort. If you want much cooler temperatures, the spring and autumn is perfect for that. During the months of March, April May and October and November the weather remains cool the day long and there are no hot summer afternoons to bother about. You can be out and about any time you so desire.
When it comes to the holidays, the months of September and October see the most rush of visitors as these are the months of Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah. If you are interested in seeing these or being a part of these religious festivals then book your cheap flights to Tel Aviv and cheap domestic flights much in advance, for there is a deluge of people who come to Tel Aviv during this time.
What to do
The best way to enjoy the entire city is to go about it in the geographical manner. You can consider kick starting your trip with the old Jaffa which is nestled in the southern areas and then continue to peruse through the eclectic and quaint flea markets, art galleries, bars and restaurants. Once done with this, you can forget about taking any local mode of transport and walk north towards the Neveh Tzedek. You can feast your eyes on the beautifully restored buildings; enjoy a performance or two at the Suzanne Dellal Center. Then there is the Nahalat Benyamin market which is held on Tuesday and Friday, the Eretez Israel Museum, Diaspora, Yarkon Park and the Tel Aviv Port where you can have a great time.
There are various ways of getting around the town. Tel Aviv has a contemporary, economical and extensive bus network. The bus services can be made use of from 5 in the morning till midnight, though there are few buses that stop before as well as after the time limit of 12.
You can buy a single ticket that comes at a price of US$ 1.5 or opt for a daily pass known as Hofshi-Yomi. Besides this you can make your bus or rail travel much cheaper with the Rav-Kav chip card. If you are going to be in town for a longer period, then the Hofshi-Hodshi can be a good investment.
