    Tel Aviv

    Tel Aviv has a laid back feel to it but is full of life. Jaffa and Florentin are two amazing parts of the city that are a must see.

    Insider Tip:Watch your bag at the Carmel market, especially at its peak on Friday afternoon. Thieves will steal from you if you are not paying attention

    Tel Aviv - fine for a couple of days, but not much more

    Tel Aviv is a very cosmopolitan city - lots of bars and restaurants, cafes and shops. The restaurants and bars are really cool and quirky. If this (and the high life) is what you're after than this is the place for you. People are friendly and the weather's great - it's pretty cool hanging out on the beach watching kite surfers. If you're looking for an inexpensive holiday in a place steeped in diverse culture and history: then probably give this a miss!

    Insider Tip:Ask for the famous soup restaurant (the name I forget) - it's brilliant

    Two English girls in Tel Aviv

    We felt really safe during our stay at a rented apartment. Our hosts were kind enough to offer some interesting places to see and we were lucky enough to locate these.

    Insider Tip:Always ask the locals, waitresses, bar staff ETc as they will always recommend the best.

    Not the best place in Israel!

    In my mind, Tel Aviv was this fun, hip, cool city that didn't really do Shabbat. Well ... apart from at the beach, most of it was closed on Shabbat! It actually felt more like a glorified seaside resort with a bit of a town behind it. It did feel very safe, however. I'd say 'expensive', but it was still cheaper than home (the UK) so that's probably not a fair thing to say.

    Tel Aviv

    Lively city all year round but especially during the summers. Great bars, cafes and restaurants for dining and partying. Old Jaffa is also a great location for weekends.
