The juxtaposition of old and new is common in Israel and nowhere is this more apparent than in the city of Tel Aviv. The towering skyscrapers and state-of-the-art architecture in this cosmopolitan metropolis stand in stark contrast to the cobbled streets and old-world charm of the surrounding areas. Tel Aviv is the financial, technological and economic hub of Israel. Known as a “party capital”, the city is the perfect destination for the hedonistic traveller looking to play in a vibrant, dynamic city that never sleeps. Visitors spend time marveling at the plethora of contemporary art galleries, engaging in retail therapy at artisan boutiques, or relaxing in the sun on one of the blissfully balmy beaches, before heading to Tel Aviv’s many restaurants, bars and exclusive nightclubs after dark.
