Arlozorov Terminal

by yello

Is there a taxi rank at Arlozorov Terminal, or are taxis readily available on the road nearby? I'm making a tight connection to Sde Dov via Egged bus and would like to use an Arlozorov Terminal route rather than Central Bus Station, but it won't be worthwhile if I can't get a cab easily from Arlozorov Terminal. Thanks.

The cabs are not lined up where the buses let you off, but if you go to the front of the train station you will see they are lined up. ( and you will be approached by drivers as you start walking there. Note: you don't say where you are coming from but most likely the Egged bus will drive past the train station ( you can't get off) and continue another minute until its' final stop. The walk from the bus to the front of the train station is 2-3 minutes.

Thanks - very helpful info! (Coming from Jerusalem on Egged route 480).

As in many other train stations/bus terminals/airports, make sure you take a registered taxi from the taxi line parked there, and don't get tempted by one of the drivers who would offer you their services outside the line. A "legit" taxi doesn't guarantee a hassle free ride, but you have less chances of being cheated or having to argue about the fare at the end of the trip.

Okay-- I frequently ride the 480 and then transfer to the train for a trip to Netanya. So, here are exact instructions.

When the bus gets off the highway he will take an exit which loops around, make a right turn and then another right into the terminal area ( on your right is a car rental sales showroom ( I can't remember the name now.) Another 100 feet and there is the train terminal, the bus drives past and makes a right into the bus area. He pulls up and lets you out. When you get off the bus, make a right and walk to the rear of the bus and keeping walking--out the way the vehicle just drove in. You'll walk past the area of the Dan Company buses ( all the time walking straight) and then you'll leave the buses ( you'll see the driveway entrance and to your left is the train station. ( large building) BTW it is taking me almost as much time to write this as it will take you to do it. ( not complaining, just giving you an idea of time)

Thanks rdglady for the precise instructions and taking the time and care to spell them out for me!

Travel Tips for Tel Aviv-Yafo

visit the beach and make the...

by good-old

visit the beach and make the promenades along the outdoor cafees and restaurants, I dont know any city like this, and you get to like and learn to love it very fast. Among the best nightclubs in Israel, although Tel Aviv is like any other big european city when it comes to buildings, shopping and habits.

Tel-Aviv the "pink" house

by Martin_S.

This pink house is in an area of Tel-Aviv called Neve Tzedek, not too far from the Shuk HaCarmel. I should have asked to people living here why they painted "this particular" color. The pink combined with the blue doors makes it stand out even at night. You wil notice that there are no sidewalks here and a small area in front of the house had been made into a garden by adding some rocks to make a low wall and then adding some soil, a nice spot of green in an area otherwise devoid of exterior gardens.

Seven Mills walk

by Martin_S.

Within the Yarkon Park is the Seven Mills historical site. It consists of a series of milling stations along the river. Today there is little left or preserved, but if you follow the map to the various stations along the river it is a very plesant walk. Here you can see the signpost (sorry it is only in Hebrew here) and the map that accompanies it.

Tipping, Israeli point of view

by CarrotPie82

I'm Israeli, living in a city which is a suburb of Tel-Aviv. This means I spend most of my evenings in Tel-Aviv and know it pretty well, so I was interested in looking at it from a tourist's point of view.
It's true most waiters in TA (and in Israel enerally) don't get paid and are expected to live off tips (or the equivalent of minimum wage if they don't reach it by tipping), but it's also a known fact that Israelis do leave tips, by age ranges:
teenagers (before their army service, e.g. up to 18) usually don't tip much (unless they work as waiters themselves).
students and soldiers, even though being poor, know (or remember) what it's like working in restaurants, and will therefore leave even up to 20% if they liked the service, and the necessary 10% if you were mean.
'older' people will usually be generous, but this varies. I never was an 'older person' so I can't tell for sure.
and another thing - larger groups tend to leave more money behind if they know their math. why is that? every person pays for himself, and rounds the sum up to include the tip. those round-ups will usually result in a 5-10% addition to your tip.
for conclusion, working in restaurants is one of the more worthwhile jobs for travellers... go for it! :)

Packing List

by sandravdp

Backpack! Light clothes! It is hot here! Maybe a sweater for in the evening, but then it will still be hot (in summer, anyway). Bring walking shoes and especially a pair of slippers! Loads of suncream, anti diarhoeapills and anti mosquitocream/spray!
