What are some major customs and traditions for Israel in general? Styles of food? Clothing?
I would like to visit some of the paces Christ was at and see some of the country in Israel. Any recommendations? Places that are not so crowded are preferred. What kind of places are the cheapest to stay at....hotel? B&B?? I am in the US. Thanks.
Hiya all, can anyone give me a rough idea how cheap/expensive Tel Aviv is for lunches and evening meals please. Agent is telling me cheap and plentiful restaurants but have also heard its expensive. Rough guide please and obviously any suggested venues will be useful. We are 4 ladies staying B/B for 1 week in June, so could we say get an evening meal for around £15? Many thanks in advance
Hi, I'll be visiting Israel in November, travelling round the country for a week, ending off with 4 free days in Tel Aviv in mid Nov. Just wondering what are the most awesome clubs in Tel Aviv right now (since the clubbing scene is pretty legendary....). Also which is the best beach to go to? I've read that Alma beach is a beach that locals go to (and to smoke shisha as well?) Appreciate any tips and advice. Thanks!
Hi, everyone. We are going to stay in Tel-Aviv for a week - between 30th of April and 6th of May and then head for a conference somewhere in the North of Israel. Being from a cold country, we wanted to have Sun and Sea vacation. Is it possible to go to the beach and swim in the sea in Tel-Aviv in the beginning of May, or our better option is going to Eilat instead?...
Which Sherut companies drive between Tel Aviv and Haifa on a Saturday? Thank you
We will be in Tel Aviv for 2 nights in July. Can anyone recommend a hotel on the beach strip, that is no more than180.00 a night?
Hello fellow travelers, I will be in Israel in late July until early August and my flight is landing at 03:30 on the Shabbat night. I found a self-catering apartment place through booking.com close to the beach and with a reception, and I have contacted them when booking to notify them of my need of an early check-in. I have yet to receive an answer about this. So my question is: what are my options? I assume that taxi is the only way at this hour, Shabbat or not. I will need to get some sleep after waking up in the middle of the night and trying to be somewhat alert prior to the passport check. Also, what can I do to get some groceries, if the places in my immediate surroundings are closed? Thank you in advance, toda.

Hi, I'm flying out to Tel Aviv next week for business trip but will have a day spare so would like to do a day trip to Nazareth etc. I've found various one's on offer and most seem to be around £50 which is fine but can anyone recommend a particular company to book this through? Part of my visit will include taking customers to Jerusalem + Caesarea so this seems the next best place to explore. Would be happy to go with a smaller group if it wasn't too cost prohibitive. Thanks Sue

Anyone have any information about renting a bicycle in Tel Aviv for a Sunday, all day? How much it costs, what company rents them, etc? Also, anyone know how long it would take to walk from Independence park to Jaffa? I know it should be long, but I think it would be a great walk along the beachfront. In other words, on a Saturday, if I started walking at 5 p.m., what time would I get to Jaffa for dinner? And I'm a fast walker... Thanks, and open to suggestions about how to spend my first evening in Tel Aviv!
We're booking a tour that starts at 4pm in Jerusalem. We're planning to arrive from Paris to Tel Aviv at 12:10 am on the day the tour starts. what should we do? Should we take a cab to Jerusalem and pay for a night's hotel? Should we book a hotel in Tel Aviv and get some sleep and then take cab to Jerusalem? Are there any hotels that offer 12 hr rates? first time in Israel. Booking a 9 night tour w/gate 1 and then staying additional 10 days in Tel Aviv(Eilat and some day trips, wedding). Any suggestions greatly appreciated! THanks.
Hi I am getting desperate and hope my fellow travelers might be able to help me. I need to find an apartment in Tel Aviv for 2 nights (19 & 20 January). I arranged for my friend and her baby boy to go to Israel where he underwent life saving heart surgery last Monday. He is still in intensive care but thank God he is recovering well now. I need to find place as near to AZOR area as possible. She has been away from her home and friends for New Year and her birthday on 19 January and will be away for 12 weeks total. After what she has endured with her baby, I want to pay a SURPRISE visit for her birthday. Due to the recession, I lost my job 6 months ago (I start a new business in next few weeks) and to get her and her baby to Israel has already cost me over4,000 so money is very tight now. If anybody can suggest a reasonable place at at good price, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you and kind regards Mike

Do bus drivers in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem provide change if you do not have the exact fare? What about sheroot drivers? Also do taxi drivers in Israel accept credit cards?
I will be arriving in Tel Aviv in a couple of days and I just found out that the person who was suppose to meet me at the airport has other plans so I have to arrive at the house by my own. I am arriving at 3.15 in the morning and I was wondering if there are busses at this hour? If there arent, what time do they start circulating and which is the bus that can take me to Holon (Vatikim)from the airport. I should arrive at Amal street or maybe Eilat street which I understood is near by. How much is the ticket and is it allowed to pay in other currency then shekel? If there is no bus that can take me to the destination, what other options do I have other than taxi? If I have to consider taking a taxi,which is a secure company that will not rip mi off and how much would it cost approximatly? I have many questions, and I need a fast answer just to get rid of the panic attack. Tanx in advance. Any info regarding any of the questions will be appreciated and helpful. Sara

Hi, I'm traveling to Israel for the first time in October. I'm a bit worried about my flight arriving late at night and having to travel alone to join a group in Tiberias. Originally, I wanted to save some money by using public transportation, but had to scrap that out in favor of private transfers from BEN GURION Airport to Tiberias. Is74 per car per way overpriced or reasonable, given my circumstances? How long does it usually take to get out of the airport with Immigration and everything? I'm holding a Japanese passport. Any tips or advice would be much welcomed.
