Israel Natural Environment
Weather you are Christian, Muslim, Bahai, Catholic or just love history , Jerusalem is a must-see. Just one thing, if you go to the old Jerusalem market places, be prepared to bargain with the shopkeepers and also be warned that if you walk out of a shop empty-handed, chances are , they will folllow you down the road still trying to make a sale. Oh, yes and another think, would appear that our left means their right so be careful when asking for directions. Best place to stay is the Swedish Packpackers in the old city market itself. Its central to everything and you can hear church bells, mosques wailing and feel the vibe of the city...if these walls could speak!

Elat, South (The Negev), Israel
Great place to have fun. Loads of discos and night clubs. Beach destination around the year, the temperature of Red Sea is never below 20 degrees celsius. Some might get disturbed by the fact that there are srmed Israeli soldiers everywhere (like anywhere in Israel) and if you´re entering a mall or any bigger supermarket, a security man will check your hand-bag or rucksack before you can enter. Elat is very safe destination though. One doesn´t have to worry much about thieves or about the arab-israeli conflict. The Jordanian and Egyptian borders are close, so therefore there are quite a few check-up points on the roads to Elat. If you like scoopa diving ot snorkelling, this is your place. Red Sea is famous for it´s beautiful corals and colourful fishes. If you don´t dive yourself, you can always make a trip with glass bottom boat and see the colourful sea life from there. There´s really not much to see in Elat. They don´t have historical sites there. But you can try some of the tourist excurcions: the camel safari in a desert, bedouin night or to the nearby wild life resort Timna Park. Elat is quite expensive. Food, beverages, alcohol, accomodation. So if you´re travelling with a small budget, don´t stay too long in Elat. Much cheaper destinations by the Red Sea are on the Egyptian side of the border: try Nuewiba or Dahab instead.
Tel Aviv-Yafo, Tel Aviv & Surrounds, Israel
Best mean of transportation in Tel Aviv: Walk!
One of the biggest advantages of Tel Aviv is that although it offers all the excitements of a big city, it is actually quite small. Especially if you are staying in one of the beach area hotels, everything from Jaffa in the south to the pubs in the north of Hayarkon street is a walking distance away. So take advantage of the nice weather almost all year round and of the friendly atmosphere in the streets, and just walk!
