Whether you are traveling alone or with family, here is why you must visit Israel: 1. Rich History If you are someone who gets excited peeking through the curtains of history, Israel has a lot to offer. From the era of Jesus to the Ottoman Empire, “The Land” has seen it all. Israel cities Jerusalem and Jaffa are among the oldest places in the world and visiting Israel allows you to see places as old as thousands of years. You can experience Roman ruins and Amish-like German villages while still being in the 21st century. 2. The Beaches If you can’t resist beaches, you are going to fall in love with Israel’s beaches. Israel has one of the most exotic beaches in the Middle East. The Mediterranean Sea is considered a natural wonder and acts as the western border of Israel. From the urban shores of Tel Aviv to Acre in the north, almost all of Israel’s coastline is wonderful to see and easily accessible. While enjoying the cool sand of the beach and watching the sunset, you can satisfy your appetite with fresh fish. 3. Holy Jerusalem Jerusalem, the official capital and holy city is religiously important for Jews, Christians, and Muslims. The city is home to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Western Wall, and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Anyone who follows any of these religions will want to visit the city. Apart from its religious side, it's a city with a lot to offer in terms of modern living and heritage. It is the most eventful city of Israel with the largest number of museums and cultural institutions. 4. Desert Adventure Israel's landscape has so much diversity that you may not be able to discover everything on a short visit. Another tourist attraction in Israel is getting on the bike or an all-terrain jeep and meandering along the desert trails. To unwind from your day, travel through the desert. There is a range of modern guest cabins and inns where you can relax afterwards. 5. Tel Aviv – A non-stop city Tel Aviv is one of the coolest cities in the region. In ‘the city that never sleeps’, you can explore events, nightlife, beaches, coastline, and markets. The city has an unbeatable nightlife that makes it one of the most attractive cities in the world. The city competes with Miami and New York in terms of its nightlife activities, great food, atmosphere, and overall positive vibe. If you like to stay connected with the internet while roaming the streets of Tel Aviv, there is free WiFi in many neighborhoods. 6. The Dead Sea If you have ever seen pictures of people floating in the sea instead of swimming in it and you wonder if it is real, then you should visit the Dead Sea. It is an unreal experience. The Dead Sea is 1,300 feet below sea level, which makes it the lowest point on earth. The water is so salty that it is literally impossible to sink. The mud here is considered a beauty product and sold around the globe. It is rich in minerals and has therapeutic properties. The mud baths are supposed to do wonders for your skin and heal many ailments. The Dead Sea is well worth a full day visit, but we need to plan it to avoid traffic and crowds. 7. Jesus walked here Israel has a special religious significance for Jews and Muslims, but it also a special spiritual value for Christians. Christians believe that the Sea of Galilee in the north is where Jesus walked on the water. The area is easily accessible for anyone who desires to visit. In Jerusalem, walk along the Via Dolorosa, where Jesus took his last steps. 8. 100% Safe If you are wondering if Israel is safe to visit, the answer is “yes”, it is completely safe to visit this amazing country. It does have ongoing political conflicts with neighboring regions and could cause concerns for first-time visitors. So, if you are traveling for the first time, it is wise to use the services of a reputable travel agency, like us, to make sure that your tour is 100% safe and hassle-free. Make sure you choose a trust-worthy travel agency and pay attention to any warnings or concerns they express. 9. The Hebrew Language You may not know Hebrew, but this is the only country where it is the local language. This is pretty amazing as the language is almost 2000 years old and was dormant. In the past centuries, language experts have added new modern words. However, in Israel, the majority of people speak English and many speak Arabic as well. 10. Festivals in Israel The Israeli culture is full of events and festivals. There is always something going on throughout the year. Thousands of people visit just to experience the festivals and events in Israel every year. Tel Aviv is considered liberal and the unofficial ‘gay city’. Every year at the beginning of June, the country celebrates the world’s second-biggest gay parade.
