I have family in Israel and visit almost every year. Along the years I have continously persuaded friends to join me (most are frightened) and all have been shocked by the modernity, the beauty and the joie de vivre that Israeli people have...

It's such a lively place don't go just to see it's past, go and participate and experience it's future.

There are classy and exclusive nightclubs in Tel Aviv and all night, pass the water beach rave's in Eilat... there's something happening every night in Israel, at all hours. Get in there with some locals and you'll most likely find yourself somewhere at midnight on a beach starting a bbq sitting round playing backgammon while people are strumming on guitars in the background...

Eilat

  • The tayelet, a promenade along the beach with stalls selling, jewellerry, hairbraiding, and sarongs.
  • Jazz festival September Time.
  • Village Beach - Daylight party's
  • Diving with the Dolphins
  • Floating Casino
  • Jeep Trek

Tel Aviv

  • Shopping in Dizengoff
  • Cocktails in the evening in Tel Aviv Port
  • The Carmel Market

Dead Sea

Visit on the way to Eilat, stay a few days to use the spas if you have enough time

 

Jerusalem

Wailing Wall (Ladies cover your shoulders and legs) Gent's you will have to wear a skull cap to enter the site.

Must Buy Souvenirs

  • Backgammon Set
  • Nargila / Shisha (don't forget tobacco and coal)
  • Sharwal (floaty beach trousers, you wont want to take them off)
  • Dead Sea Beauty Products

Must Eat

  • Shwarma
  • Melowach
  • Falafel

Road signs are shown in English, Hebrew and Arabic and the roads are good, it's pretty easy to hire a car and do it yourself in Israel.
