Dramatic and diverse - a true land of extremes - Israel is a country with an ancient world feel alongside a backdrop of new world modernization and  modernism, ultra-religious and secular values as well as out of this world natural attractions and unique architecture. Head to the Dome of Rock and the Temple Mount in Jerusalem to see one of the holiest Muslim sites - a temple built in 691 AD on the site of the fabled Temple of Solomon. Journey to the Hassidic quarters of Mea Shearim, or wander through the romantic Old Jaffa with its minarets and Crusader Ruins. Go to the Sea of Galilee, considered the birthplace of Christianity or alternatively turn towards the desert that surrounds the Dead Sea – where the abandoned Nabatean cities of Avdat and Shivta can be found. Spend some time hiking down Wadi Kelt, and get views of extraordinary canyons, or go on a llama trek in the Ramon Crater. To top it all off, snorkel or scuba dive in the Red Sea itself (someone originally wrote Dead Sea, if you were to dip your head under the water in the Dead Sea you would instantly regret it) where some of the most amazing coral reefs and wildlife await. The regions off of Coral Island are legendary. Sense and see for yourself the places spoken of in stories and legends of the ancient past while soaking in directly the beautiful beaches and fascinatingly complex culture.

The best and cheapest way to get from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem or vice versa, is with the multiple person taxis that run between the two cities. It is convenient since you just pile in and wait for the taxi to fill up to the point where the driver feels he has enough passengers and off you go. Just DO NOT expect to carry a huge backback or any suitcases with you. This is a commuter taxi, not a luggage transportation service!
