My family and I are travelling to Sharm and want to go to Eilat during our stay. Do we need a visa from Sharm to Eilat?
Hello Fellows Travelers,
I just need a quiet spot in Eilat or nearby, where I can enjoy swimming and relaxing.
I am not unto nightlife or parties, I just want the sun and the beach to enjoy .
I am looking to go in November, for a week, something affordable, Hotel/Half board included.
I will be traveling from London uk, I have read that there is no direct flight from London uk, what is the other alternative for the flight to get there.
I would really appreciate please any help, this is my first to the Holy land.
Hours of operation in December.
Open on Shabbat?
Can you climb in December?
My son is going to a concert/dance rave at Masada on Oct 17, from Tel Aviv. What are his transportation options. I assume this is at night.
Im thinking of a holiday in elat in november, is it safe?
We're going to be coming down from the Galilee area, and we're wondering if there are any good places to stay along the Jordan River/Dead Sea area instead of going all the way back to Jerusalem. Any recommendations would be very appreciated!!
How long will a ride with a car take from Tel Aviv to Masada on a normal day
where can I find the bus timetable from Masada to Jerusalem or/and other towns on thursday 17 of october?
we plan to arrive by bus at En Gedi on wed (october 16) staying at Ein Gedi Beit Sarah Guest House & Youth Hostel.
the bus will be there at about 11.48am or 12.51 depending on which bus we will catch at Kumran.
will we have enough time for a small hike at Ein Gedi Nature Reserve (we'll probably do only the short trail) but also for swim at Dead Sea on the same day before sunset?
any other attractions nearby? is the old synagogue in walking distance?
cant find how much time we need to walk to the public beach from the hostel. in several forums people claim that googlemaps have the hostel in wrong spot.
the day after we have to check out (we plan to go to Massada so we dont want to loose time on the beach that we want to visit to experience the unusual high rate of salt, taking some pictures of us flowing on water etc)
I am planning a trip to Israel in September and I would liek to know about good-bad experiences in diving centers in Eilat, prices (I would bring òy own equipment) and if it is at all adviseable and practical to spend some dives in Aqaba as well (where are the best dive sites on either side? Which ones?) since I would also like to go to Wadi Rum.
Thanks in advance
if i stay at desert vision in arad, will i be able to get a bus or taxi to masada and be there bu 7.30 a.m.
if i go on the night of 21st august , will there be a lighst show?
We will arrive in Beersheba at 00:27 by train and hoping to catch the 1.30am bus to Eilat. Do we need to book?
what day of the week massada is open during the night and what is the hours schedule
Can we renew our wedding vows on top of masada?
How much time do I need to leave for driving in the afternoon at 2 PM from BeerSheba to Rizpah Ramon crater?
Have again to travel in Beersheba for business for a few days and I am getting sick only by thinking that I have again stain in the same and the only hotel Leonardo (or Golden Tulip). Bad quality and terribly overpriced for the service they provide.
I cannot believe that there is no available any other accommodations or guest houses for reasonable price. May be anyone knows any of them?
There are no a lot of hotels and guest houses directly in Arad town. In my opinion Arad is more attractive for a long staying neither Ein Bokek. The price for B&B or mini-hotels in Arad much less so you have an oppotrtunity to stay there for more than few days. The way from Arad to Dead Sae may take about 15 minutes by car/taxi/city shuttle. Furthermore climate in Arad much enjoyable then in Ein Bokek.
Nevertheless I don't understand why B&B and mini-hotels in Arad are so unpopular? What is the main reasons? Quality of accommodation? Number of services? Neighborhood? Strangles of this kind of accommodation? or What can you say on this?
What are the few beach resorts near to the eilat central bus station?
Hi, my friend and I are going to Israel in September. We would like to avoid going with Egged, if possible. Friday afternoon we want to go from Ein Gedi to Tel Aviv. Is there a sherut also in the afternoon on Fridays?
Another option would be a rental car. But is it possible to return a car in Tel Aviv on a Friday evening?
Thanks for your help in advance
Sorry, it's ma again.

2. Is it safe to drive on that route? I have my douthers with me aged 4 and 6 and what to be sure!!!!

Does anyone know how far it is from the border crossing at Taba to the Underwater observatory in Eilat?...and are there taxis waiting there to take people into the marina form there?...or even a bus to the marina....bus 15 goes to the town ...any idea how to get a timetable?
We are staying at the Masada Youth Hostel Mar 17-19. Breakfast is included, but what other restaurants are nearby? We read the restaurant in the park is expensive and buffet style? I hope there are other options?!
We are travelling from Jeruselum to Massada on a Saturday, so of course we will take a taxi and get dropped off at the Hostel. But what are travel options in and around the Dead Sea? Is it a walkable area or are there taxis or shuttles needed? Upon returning to Jeruselum, where is the bus station and what buses (nos.) are available to Jeruselum? thanks for any help!
we are 2 travelers staying in Petra, Jordan until Friday but then we have to go back Israel, since our flight is leaving on Sunday in the very morning.
We are trying to get to the the death sea on Friday but we will arrive in Israel after dawn, so we getting straight into Sabbath, but maybe we are lucky and we find a intercity service taxi crossed finger
In case we can't make we have to stay a night in Eilat, but where???
There not the much hostels on the standard hostels search engines and they mostly request a 2 day booking.
But I heard something about Red Sea Star - Vista Azul Dive Centre but can't find anything on the web.
So maybe anyone of you can give us some help, would be really great :)
By the way, there are frequent connections from Dead Sea (Mas´ada or En Gedi) to Jerusalem or Tel Aviv?
which egged bus stop stops closest to the masada hostel? is it before/after/in ein bokek? is it a significant walk from the bus stop to the hostel itself?
We will arrive Aqaba by flight in the morning of a day in next October. We plan to cross the border to Eilat to see the Red Canyon. Is there enough time for us to do it within the same day and return? Can we go to Red Canyon independely from Eilat rather than joining any tour group (as my husband may love to spend a few hours taking photographs there). Will it be too hot doing hiking in the afternoon? Any advice and comment will be much appreciated.
How far is the bus station from the Masada Guest House/Youth Hostel? How far is the Ein Gedi Spa from the Guest House? I am trying to get an idea how "walkable" this area is. Does anyone know how long it ususally takes to walk up to Masada? I heard conflicting accounts, but I realize everyone's ability is different. I am trying to figure how much water to carry.
Are the helmoniot blooming yet in this last week of October?
We would like to travel to and from Masada from Jeruselum in March 2012. Many tours offer a one day bus tour taking the cable car up to Masada then spending some time at the dead sea. We would like to do an overnight so that we could climb Masada instead of taking the cable car. Does anyone know buses to and from Jeruselum and transport between Masada and the Dead sea so that we can do all this w/o being grouped with other who just take the cable car?
