About Tel Aviv, Israel
Tel Aviv (Hebrew: תל אביב, Arabic: تل أبيب) is the second largest city in Israel (after Jerusalem), and has the largest metropolitan area. It is on the Mediterranean coast, about 60 km north-west of Jerusalem and some 100 km south of Haifa. The official name is Tel Aviv-Yafo (תל אביב-יפו), and reflects the fact that the city has grown beside (and absorbed) the ancient port city of Yafo (English: Jaffa, Arabic: يافا Yafa), to the south of the new city center, in addition to many other neighboring cities. Tel Aviv is known as the most liberal city in Israel, and one of the most gay friendly cities in the world. Came to be known as “The Miami Of The Middle East” by some American travel magazines, the city is one must be destination in your trip to Israel.
Tel Aviv’s markets are the best show in town, and they’re bustling all day long. A Middle Eastern mélange of tastes, scents, sounds, colors – and lots of people.
- The Carmel Market – mostly fruits and vegetables
- The Flea Market – some antiques
- The Nahalat Binyamin Pedestrian Mall – located behind the Carmel Market
- Levinsky Market in Florentin — the best place in Tel Aviv to buy spices, dried fruits, and different kinds of legume. This small market is stretched along Levinsky Street in southern Tel Aviv, between Hertzel and Ha-Aliya streets, ten minutes of walking from the Central Bus Station.
- Hatikva Market in HaTiqva — a good place for Jewish-Iraqi cuisine, in the south-eastern “Hatikva” neighbourhood.
- Farmers’ Market in Tel Aviv ports on Fridays.
Tel Aviv is called “The city that never stops” by tourists and locals alike. It has a wide range of pubs, bars, clubs and it is known worldwide for its nightlife. The entire city is crawling with nightlife attractions and you would actually have to work pretty hard to find yourself further than 500 meters away from a place to have a drink in the city center. People from all the surrounding region come to Tel Aviv to have a drink or a party so on weekends traffic is hectic at late hours and finding a parking spot is somewhere between hard and impossible (so sticking to cabs is not a bad idea). Buses stop running at sundown on Friday and only start again after it is completely dark on Saturday night, so if you go out on Friday night you may find yourself forced to take a cab if you cannot walk! But any day is a good day to party in Tel Aviv, not just the weekends. (source)
