With fish to eat and places from which to enjoy the sunset, Israel’s beaches are one of its inviting features.

Holy Jerusalem

Holy to all three monotheistic faiths, Jerusalem is a city like no other. Its cobbled streets have seen some of the most momentous events in history. Its Old City is a melting pot of faiths and ethnicities, a nest of strange coexistence. The city as a whole offers something for everyone.

Tel Aviv has recently begun to host its own fashion week, which joins numerous film festivals and cultural events throughout the city.

Because Israelis are the Funniest People in the World

An amazing and diverse group of people, Israelis come in all shapes and forms: Some are Jews whose grandparents migrated here from Europe or North Africa, others are Muslim or Christian Arabs who identify as Palestinians. Old or young, religious or secular, your average Israeli is kind and will help out with whatever you need, always ready with a recommendation.

Its Diverse Landscape

Like the food and the people, Israel is also extremely geographically diverse. The south you have the Negev Desert and the barren Arava, home to the Dead Sea, which end in the Red Sea resort town of Eilat.

Regardless of whether you consider yourself secular or religious, the area now called Israel is the cradle of all three monotheistic faiths. Pilgrims from across the world flock here, and for Christians this is especially enticing as everything from Bethlehem in the West Bank to Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee in the north (where Christians believe Jesus walked on the water) are all easily accessible area. In Jerusalem, you can even follow Jesus’ last steps by walking the Via Dolorosa.

Few Things are as Beautiful as the Bahia’s Hanging Gardens of Haifa

Among the smaller and lesser-known faiths in Israel are the Bahia. They too call Israel their birthplace, and the country is home to their holy sites. An aesthetic powerhouse overlooking Haifa’s beach. The gardens are a must see, and offer a great chance to learn about this secretive religion.

The only Hebrew speaking country. This is pretty amazing as the language was dormant. In the past century, wise Israelis have toiled to create new words for everything from television and internet.
