Israel is a fantastic country for anyone looking for a unique vacation experience. There are many unique historic and religious landmarks to visit, delicious food to sample and also a beautiful landscape that is diverse, breathtaking and makes for fantastic pictures.

Reasons to Visit Israel

If you’re here for the quick summary, then here are some great reasons to visit Israel for a holiday.

  1. The Dead Sea is known as the lowest place on Earth, but it’s also fascinatingly unique because it’s virtually impossible to swim in it. The salt content means you’ll just float which makes for some amazing photographs and the mud around the dead sea has many beneficial skin properties.
  2. Israel has a bustling nightlife scene and is surprisingly open to the LGBTQ world, hosting the second-biggest Gay Pride parade in the world in Tel Aviv. If you’re into partying and having a great time making new friends, then Israel is a wonderful place to visit.
  3. Whether you visit the Negev Desert in the South of Israel or the green landscape of Galilee in the North, there is diverse scenery that is absolutely worth visiting.

Israel Travel Tips

Israel is a beautiful country with an amazing culture and lots of things to do, but here are a couple of travel tips to keep in mind.

  • Israel isn’t a cheap location to live or travel in, so make sure you pack some extra funds!
  • Public transport is very accessible, but there’s also a local Uber alternative known as Gett which we absolutely recommend for getting around.
  • Be careful with dress codes. While Israel is a very open country, there are certain places (such as religious landmarks) that will require you to adhere to a strict dress code.
