Leisure day in Tel Aviv

by ellieinmj

Our tour company gives us a leisure day in Tel Aviv. It has an optional 1/2 day tour for $40 USD per person. Is this worth it or can we see most of Tel Aviv ourselves? Is there a tourist bus that goes around the city?

Re: Leisure day in Tel Aviv

Walking Tel Aviv is great fun. When you're tired of walking: in the main streets there are small buses that drive a fixed route: you just wait for them at the curb, waive them down, get in, pay the driver a fixed amount and away you go. Much cheaper then a taxi.

Dizengoff is a nice street for walking and shopping; Near the end, Yermitahu, are small designer (work)shops. Rothschild is a nice avenue to see the "Bauhaus" flats from the beginning of the 20the century. At some days there is a free guided (walking)tour you can join. Check the http://www.bauhaus-center.com/
If you like modern art: visit the museum of Modern art. Or spend some time on the beach. The Tel Aviv port (in the north) is being revived with some nice shops, bars, restaurants etc.

Best,

Jan

Do you have any tour at all from your tour company or is it --optional or nothing ? What day of the week is it? Consider taking the Circle Tour bus. You can either take it straight or pay a little more for hop on hop off.

Yes, it's either optional or nothing. The day is a Friday.

Friday is a relatively short work day (Fri-Sat is the weekend). It is also one of the days for the Nahalat Binyamin "street fair", near the Carmel open-air market - also worth strolling through. From there it is an easy walk to the Old City of Jaffa (Yafo). From there, you may then take a bus/taxi north to the central and northern parts of Tel Aviv, as suggested.

As mentioned Tel-Aviv is a "walkable" city, if your feet are up to it. Friday is an early day and most stores and shops close at around 1-2pm. The market in Jaffa can be fun for souvenier hunting, also the old city is great for an afternoon. The Carmel market is something to experience if you do not have these types of open air markets at home. Also the different neighbourhoods making up the older sections of Tel-Aviv are fantastic. The "White Houses" are even a World Heritage Site. I have attached some links that may help you decide what to see and how to walk.

Re: Leisure day in Tel Aviv

Thanks for all of your suggestions. This tour is a "bare bones" tour and just takes you from place to place, a few guided tours but a lot of "optional tours.
The reason I want this tour is it's the only one I can find that after seeing Israel, flies to Cairo and spends three days there before coming back to the USA.

Travel Tips for Tel Aviv-Yafo

Walk around in Yafo

by duke0123

Walking in the narrow streets of old Yafo is actually something you have to do when you're here. This quarter is also called 'artist's centre' because of the many artists who live here. Besides this there are a lot of small shops, bakery's and eating-houses.

What I also liked about these alleys were the street-signs. Not the ordinary signs such as we know. No, these signs were very artistic. Maybe created by the artists who live here.

Azrielly Center

by Carmela71

The circular building at night.

The Azrieli Towers are the largest commercial center in the Middle East

Admission is 20NIS (around 4 euros) paid at the reception desk, but if you have a reservation on the restaurant you do not have to pay it.

Pride Parade

by ophiro

For those who come to Tel Aviv in June , every year the pride parade is taking place here.
The parade is for Transexuals , Lesbians and Homosexuals fight for Equal Rights.

In June 2007 i came also to take pictures but this year we were more photographers than marchers.

The parade is characterized by colorful people , drag queens , people with costums and funny clothes , a lot of music and lovely atmoshpere.

Packing List

by tuli

a real no no especially in the summer months is any synthetic materials, stick to cotton and such believe me you will bless me for this tip, also loose fitting not tight jeans. sandals of course but sneakers and cotton socks are a must, there is a lot of loose sand about. never go to the beach without plastic beach shoes the type you can stick under the tap while on your feet,the heat of the sand on bare feet will make you dance samba. for the evening and going out you will need what the locals call 'sport elegant' which i think explains itself.i have lived in israel tel aviv area for 30 years and have never owed a coat in that time, in other areas eg. jerusalem, you would need a lightish coat in the winter and if you are planning to be in jerusalem (up in the hills you will need alight weight cardigan or such the evenings can be chilly,even in summer. toiletries are teriffically expensive in israel so take everything from home. see that you have insect repellent in huge amounts,and even a spray for the room if you wamt a decent nights sleep.just in case the prevention didnt work, take some cream to stop the itch. take huge amounts of sun block and something for sunburn and of cause the usual dyhriah (iam sure its not spelt like that) and pain killers etc.hope all that doesnt put you off enjoy your trip. insect repellent, insect repellent and more insect repellent. long sleeved shirt and long trousers to sleep in. plastic beach shoes,for the beach (to combat the heat of the sand.)if you are in wooded areas then heavy shoes to above the ankle are necessary as ther are snakes in some area. hope i didnt put you off enjoy your trip. you wont believe this one but if your british and cant survive without a 'cup of tea', you will have to take your own tea bags. israeli tea, is undrinkable to the english.
