Travel to Israel
Israel is a small country in the Middle East that has a long strip of coastline skirting the eastern edge of the Mediterranean and also having a small strip of land fronting the Red Sea.
Three major monotheistic religions of the world, Christianity, Islam and Judaism – all lay claim to Israel being one of the holiest of holy sights for them. Quite unsurprisingly, a journey to Israel is a holy pilgrimage to many people around the world.
About 80% of the population identify themselves as Jewish. The remaining population are a mix of Arab, Palestinian, Bedouin, Baha’i, Muslim and Christian.
Israel is one of the most economically developed and westernized countries in the Middle East. Tel Aviv, is a cosmopolitan city situated on the Mediterranean Coast. Famous for its vibrant nightlife, a stopover in Tel Aviv, before moving on to visit other Israeli locations, is a good idea.
Jerusalem is the spiritual capital of the Jewish people, although Christians and Muslims also deem the city to be a very holy place. A trip to Israel would be incomplete without taking in the wonders of the Dead Sea. Being able to fully float in its hypersaline waters, is a feat in itself!
We hope that this carefully prepared travel guide will ease your travel planning and encourage you to take a future trip to Israel.
