Tel Aviv is a 24hr city of culture, entertainment and commerce with wide beaches of golden sands, exotic markets, world renowned nightlife and exclusive shopping centres. A truly cosmopolitan metropolis where new meets old amidst contemporary architecture and ancient, intimate streets. Modern Tel Aviv has yet to celebrate its 100th birthday but at its southern most border, the
port of Jaffa has a history that goes back at least 5,000 years. The city is constantly buzzing with the energy of the lively flea markets that line its narrow streets, but even the hustle and bustle of the marketplace can’t compete with Tel Aviv’s nightlife. The parties and barbecues on the beach get started while the sun is still skimming the horizon, and when it eventually disappears everybody flocks to the fine restaurants in Jaffa or central Tel Aviv, and to the clubs and café’s that are alive till dawn.
Architecture lovers should amble around the streets of Tel Aviv to discover just why the White City is a world heritage site with over 1,000 Bauhaus buildings. Visit the Nahalat Binyamin Art Market, which is next to the busy Carmel Market entrance - a colourful bazaar packed with stalls of arts, crafts, souvenirs and gifts on Tuesdays and Fridays – with street theatre, musicians, jugglers and palm readers. For the best view in Tel Aviv, go to The Azrieli Observatory; a monument to geometry 101, with triangular, rectangular and cylindrical glass and steel towers rising up 49 floors over the city. Tel Aviv houses numerous museums ranging from archaeology, history to sciences and galleries for all tastes from contemporary to classical art. Tel Aviv is famous for its fine shopping. Head to Shenkin Street for young urban fashion and Kikar Hamedina for the more exclusive designer shops. Alternatively, there are a number of shopping malls dotted throughout Tel Aviv
