Tel Aviv is regularly ranked as one of the most happening cities in the world these days, so it comes as no surprise (to those of us who know and love Tel Aviv and all that she has to offer) that the Lonely Planet have named Tel Aviv as one of the Top 10 hedonistic cities in the world.
It was only a few years ago that the majority of tourists coming to Israel were heading for the ancient sites and perhaps a kibbutz, but over the last few years Tel Aviv has truly turned into a happening city, with an amazingly varied and never halting nightlife.
Included with renowned hot spots such as Berlin, Ibiza, and Las Vegas, the Lonely Planet crew were impressed with the party lifestyle in The City That Never Sleeps. You can tell they went out partying with the locals by what they had to say…
If Jerusalem is Israel’s historic, classical capital, then Tel Aviv is its pleasure-seeking younger brother and the country’s coolest city by miles. Dubbed the ‘Miami of the Middle East’, you won’t see blinged-up superstars like Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs, but everyone else looks the part on the wonderful beaches. Tel Aviv’s locals are a cultured lot, oozing style and hungry for the finest art, fashion, cuisine and clubbing. The city celebrated its 100th birthday in 2009 with a riot of creative arts. Don’t worry if you missed the party - there’ll be another one along in no time.
Tel Aviv’s summers are scorching and humid, while winter is a damp and nippy affair; spring is a great time to visit - try March for warm days and evenings that merit no more than a light sweater.
