Pay a visit to Israel’s thrilling city of Tel Aviv– a sprawling, beachside metropolis that’s edgy, glamorous and simply unforgettable. Catch flights to Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport and discover “the city that never stops”. Stretching for miles along the Mediterranean, the city’s beaches abound with sun-kissed bathers and its boardwalks bustle with shops, bars and restaurants. Tel Aviv has gained a reputation for its fast-paced nightlife and is a very liberal and LGBT-friendly city, where parties last all night long. With over 50 different districts to explore, you’ll encounter top-notch shopping, museums and theatres, not to mention the UNESCO-listed Bauhaus architecture that earns the city its second nickname, “The White City”.
The cheapest flights to Tel Aviv are available in March but the best time to visit is summer, when the beach comes to life amidst Brazilian drum circles and roaring barbecues, and the boardwalk is pumping until 4 a.m. There’s also the popular White Night Festival, held annually in June or July, when galleries and museums throw open their doors to the public. The biannual Tel Aviv Fashion Week, held every summer and winter, is a must for designer shoppers, while bargain hunters should check out the night flea markets in August, when Jaffa’s sprawling markets positively burst with shoppers.

A must-visit in Tel Aviv is Jaffa, an extremely significant historical port and one of the oldest in the world.
