It is the perfect place to hang out and mingle if you like to eat, socialize and drink. Be very careful of the tourist shop on the crner of Yefet street, he charged me 200 shekels for a 15 shekel hat and would not give me my money back. He is a thief. I post the shop, avoid. Apart from... More

While in Israel, you should obv visit/stay in Tel-Aviv, but make sure you check Jaffa and florentin/flea market area. It is old, beautiful and iconic (the clock tower especially). Enjoy!

The market is such a bustling great place to get lost in for hours on end. Esp. For hipsters and antique buffs And then check out the beaches or the seaside restaurants for a magical sunset.

I only came here for an afternoon and evening but it was so worth the visit! Walking through the winding streets with ancient architecture while the sun set over the port was beautiful. A real mix of peoples and the combination of old and the renovated new made it a special place. The flea market is worth a visit and... More

Old Jaffa is the nicest area of Tel Aviv. Centered around the old harbor it offers scenic views over the beach, the ocean and the Tel Aviv skyline. Often very crowded I recommend to go there for a walk early in the morning; this also helps to avoid the heat as temperatures can make a visit quite exhausting in Summer.
