Activities All Tourists Should Do At Least Once In Tel Aviv


Tel Aviv is a beautiful place to travel to and it boasts a number of activities for tourists to partake in when they travel there for the first time. In fact, you’d be quite surprised that some of the best tourist destinations are actually free! Once you check yourself into a hotel or hostel in Israel, here are a few activities that we recommend you try:

*All tourists should experience what a true Middle Eastern market is like, and none is more famous in Tel Aviv than the Carmel Market. The sounds of busy hagglers, colorful textiles, and wonderful aromas make the trip to the market a worthwhile experience, even if you never end up making a purchase. However, if you’re keen on taking home a souvenir or two, you can test your haggling chops and get a better price on your purchases.

*Sporting a whopping 10km of fine beaches, you can catch some rays on the sand in no time. In fact, you can still see the cityscape in the background but get away from the hustle and bustle of a busy city. Since Israel’s summers are hot and long, you’ll be glad that you took advantage of another sunny day at the beach.

*If you much prefer the older parts of Tel Aviv as opposed to the modern city, then you’re in for a treat with the streets of Old Jaffa. Winding and narrow alleyways allow you to peruse old dwellings and while you’re there, we recommend that you once again try haggling at the local flea market.

*You can’t leave Israel without enjoying local cuisine at least once! There are many high-end restaurants that offer a truly fine dining experience that no tourist should miss. In fact, Tel Aviv is home to some of the most naturally talented chefs in the world.

*If you’re looking to spend a day honing your refined ways, then the Tel Aviv Museum of Art is a fantastic way to see some of the local cultural heritage. Along with master painters Van Gogh, Chagall, and Monet, you can spot works of art by Israeli artists that have been recognized internationally for their achievements. 

*Tel Aviv is known as The White City due to its evolving cityscape dotted with Bauhaus buildings. The modern architecture is truly a work of art and well worth a second look if you’re a tourist there for the first time. Buildings worth noting can be spotted on Bialik and Dizengoff streets.

As one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, Tel Aviv is a beautiful place teeming with culture and modern architecture. It has something to offer everyone, whether you’re into modern amenities and fine dining or you’d much prefer to haggle in the local marketplace and experience the old world charm of Israel. One thing that all tourists can agree on is the warm summers and 300 sunny days a year make it one of the best destinations in the world! If you are looking for a cheap Tel Aviv hostel, I recommend either Overstay TLV or Abraham hostel.

When you have an emergency as far as a plumbing situation, there will be no wondering what has happened, as you will be able to see right away that something is terribly wrong.

You may have a leak that is beginning to get out of hand, on one that has already gotten to the uncontrollable stage, and you may have serious flooding of backup of pipes into the sinks, tubs, showers and drains.

It is always a good idea for any homeowner to know where the shut-off valve is for the main water supply to the house. The worst time to go searching for it if you don’t know where it is located is when you already have a plumbing emergency. So locate it, and write a note on your refrigerator if you have to, so you can shut the water off if you need to.

You should also make contact with some of the local plumbing companies and find out what their policies are for emergency services. Some of them won’t want to bother, but there will be some who will advertise as such, that they are available on a 24 hours basis. Of course, the cost is going to be much higher for emergencies, but at that point you may be talking about serious damage to your house, so cost is not going to be your most major concern.

If you find someone who looks like they may be a candidate, just stop by and pay them a visit and inquire if they have any special discounts or plans that would come into play if you should ever have an emergency, such as a leaking pipe, a flood, or a busted out hot water heater.

Some local plumbing companies may have such a plan, but at least, you can find out their terms and their rates, so at least you can be prepared for that. Then too, you will get to know a plumber on a face to face basis and you may want to have a shower or a toilet installed someday.

However, if you have an emergency, you will be ready. No one really anticipates a plumbing emergency, and that is usually why it can become an emergency very quickly. This is especially true if you have a pipe burst somewhere in the living area of your house. You will certainly notice that fairly rapidly and this is a time when you will need to know where your shut off valve for your water is located.

You may have a pipe that is leaking from under a bathroom sink in an upstairs bathroom, and you may find out about it be seeing the wet and dripping ceiling in your living room. You will immediately know that you have a problem, and you can run and shut off the water.

When you call the Seattle plumber, he will know who you are from your previous visit, and he will be prepared to come and help you. This is why it is always a good policy to get to know people in the various trades before you actually need to use them.
