      Eilat Jul 8, 2015 at 2:14 AM

      Hi guys, I'm from melbourne, Australia. I know I can travel If I'm 17 but just making sure if I'll need a visa to go to Eilat for a couple of weeks. Just wondering if I'll be needing more than a passport and flight tickets to go there. Thank you:)

      Hello everyone,
      I will be in Israel the first two weeks of September, and plan on visiting Masada & Dead sea. My question is should I be using a touring company or simply booking a bus ticket and a really good travel book ?

    • trip to Jerusalem, Israel doable by ourselves?

      by inday27 Online Now Jul 1, 2015 at 12:43 PM

      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.

    • Help with an important decision.

      by JoshBer2015 Online Now 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.

      Going to Massada with an Israeli rented car?

      by schmechi Online Now Mar 12, 2015 at 6:43 AM

      As far as I found out, the best way to go to Massada national park from Jerusalem will lead through Westbank by taking route nr. 1 to the dead sea and follow its bank via route nr. 90 to Massada....

      Is it allowed to go this route with a car rented from an Israeli company? When I get it right, I will not leave Israeli controlled area (Zone C), so the car should be still insured?

      Will I have to pass check-points/border stations on this route? Or are they only between the zones A and B and Isreali controlled areas?

      Best area to stay

      by msocolin Online Now Mar 7, 2015 at 7:18 PM

      Hi! I'm going to Jerusalem with my wife and 2yr old son at the end of April. I've never been there so I'm a bit lost regarding location.

      What is a good area to stay at? What is the "difference" between the West and East Jerusalem? Would you stay in/near the old city?

      Thanks for the help!

      taxi availability on shabbat for saturday morning flight?

      by monicarc Online Now Feb 17, 2015 at 1:51 PM

      my research on this issue is conflicting--i have seen references that it is nearly impossible to get a cab to the airport on saturday mornings and other references show its no big deal that cabs are available, possibly for a higher fee. I am researching a possible future trip, but is it easy to catch a cab in jerusalem on saturday mornings? I think we would stay in the christian quarter. We dont mind paying a higher fee and/or making a specific reservation, we would just need to be able to get to the airport! this would be in march of next year. thank you.

    • Jenin back to Jerusalem

      by tourist_100 Online Now Nov 2, 2014 at 1:14 AM

      I am travelling to Jenin on Friday for the annual olive harvest festival. I am travelling from Damascus Gate in Jerusalem. I understand how to get to the festival (bus 18 to ramallah, shared taxi to Jenin, and then a private taxi to the site). However, my question is, how do I get back to Jerusalem after the festival (it ends at 8pm)? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Buying a Tallit

      by Jepstein517 Online Now Jun 10, 2014 at 1:13 AM

      Funny question, but can anyone tell me where you think the best place is to purchase a Tallit? Every other store seems to sell them, but we'd like a good quality, simple Tallit, actually 2, one large and one smaller (the ones that look like shawls). Mea Shearim, perhaps, but what store? Or the Old City? Same question.

      Thanks much.
