    • Appropriate women's attire for Israel Tel Aviv and Jeruseleum?

      Israel Oct 11, 2015 at 11:34 AM

      I'll be on a tour in Nov 2015 in Tel Aviv and Jeruseleum. Please give me some tips on appropriate women's attire for ages 45-65. I've heard it's important to wear a hat in the sun. Are there certain styles, colors or types of women's wear that should not be worn. I was told to dress conservatively, not to stand out with flashy or expensive clothing. Can anyone elaborate on these recommendations? I am planning to bring black canvas walking shoes to wear with my pants and flat heeled boots to wear with my mid-calf skirt. I'm assuming I can buy scarves when I get there depending on the weather and how much extra warmth is needed.

      Thank you in advance for any advice from women who have traveled in these cities.

      We're US citizens (no visa required, am I correct?) in our late 70s, healthy but not athletic; and we are frugal travelers. We want to visit Bethlehem, Jerusalem and nearby tourist areas for 7 days. Want to see Wailing Wall, the church, via dolorosa, etc. Can we do these ourselves? Are there too much restrictions to go to these places? Do we need permit to go to these places? Is taxi expensive fr airport to hotel? Went to local tour site, $700 for 6 hrs tours, a bit expensive to our budget. Thank you.

      Jerusalem Jun 28, 2015 at 2:57 AM

      As part of me and my wife's trip to the lovely Israel, we've started our trip visiting the northern side of the country, kept on our way to Tel Aviv for couple days and finally stayed in Jerusalem for almost 1 week and we've got our room checked until tomorrow morning. Now, we're planning on returning to the center of Tel Aviv before heading back our home in LA.
      I'm looking to surprise my wife with a mini-trip to Tel Aviv, exploring the city from up close visiting the best sites out there and stay at the most luxurious boutique hotel there.
      Since the early morning hours I've been looking for a couple boutique hotel as a comparison to what I need.

      I came up with these to boutique hotels, offering great luxurious suits, classic authentic decoration and won an award for best boutique hotels in Tel Aviv:

      The Norman >> thenorman.com/accommodations...
      Leonardo Boutique Hotel >> leonardo-hotels.com/israel-h...

      Would like to get some help from somebody on deciding between these too, ASAP!

      Sincerely,
      Josh Bernstein.

      public transport in Jerusalem

      Israel Jun 22, 2015 at 7:47 AM

      Hello!
      I`ve just joined this community because i`m travelling a lot this year. So in less then 2 weeks i am going to travel to Israel for the first time in my life. One day i want to make a day-trip to Jerusalem (i will take the train). Here and in traveling guides i got lots of helpful information, but i still have some questiones:

      Is there still no direct bus from Malcha station to the center of Jerusalem? Has anything changed on the local bus system there?

      I read that taking the tram is possible with a ticket to buy before, but i cannot change to a bus with this ticket. Is this correct or is there another possibility, maybe something like a day-ticket for bus and tram?

      Thanks a lot for help!
