    what to shop in Israel: what to shop in Israel

    -Dead Sea products
    You can find them everywhere (including the airport) but the best prices were in En Bokek. We tried a bit of everything as the products vary from body and face kits, foot lotions, the usual mud packs, bath salts and minerals, olive-oil soaps and other products that suppose to be good for the skin etc

    -souvenirs
    With so many tourists around there were souvenirs stores in most towns, apart from the usual ones in Israel they are also religious related. With so many Christian pilgrims it was no surprise to see many souvenir stores that focus on Christian related items (icons, crosses, bibles, rosaries etc) but also items about Judaism of course.

    -open markets
    We love open markets and Israel has a lot of them, the lively arab market in Jerusalem’s Old Town, Yehuda Market in West Jerusalem (great atmosphere and lots of food), HaCarmel in Tel Aviv were the most populars but every town had one for us to keep us busy and give us the usual supplies (dry fruits, nuts, fruits, olives etc), in most of them Bargaining is Expected.

    Bamba by Osem: Bamba since 1964

    by Gili_S Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the most popular kids snack in Israel. First produced in 1964 by the Osem company. It is made of peanuts & corn flavour, mostly natural ingredients, so it is actually healthier then the usual snacks kids have.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Was looking for presents for my kids. Found very unique closses in Regin Kids, Dizengoff center mall in Tel-Aviv.
    Almost all closses in this store are made by Israeli designers, they are very unique, nothing like this you can find for kids in North America. My kids really liked everything I bought in Regin Kids

    What to buy: dresses, tops

    What to pay: Almost all my presents for kids are from this store. Be ready to spend money. I bought 3 dresses, 5 tops, 2 skirts and left about 350$

    Assorted Shops: Ben Yehuda--Pedestrian Traffic Only

    by VeronicaG Updated Aug 18, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ben Yehuda is a pedestrian street filled with wonderful shops and restaurants. A street performer was hamming it up when we drifted in. A lovely flower stand offered fragrant blooms, a bakery presented its freshly baked breads and rolls, while visitors people-watched and strolled the streets (pic #3).

    Menorahs and candelabrums of all styles appeared in shop windows, while jewelry sparkled on tidy shelves (pic #2). We savored a mid-day snack at Aldo, where scrumptious flavors of ice cream vied for our attention (pic #4). A friendly young woman formerly from the states served up our order.

    A well-stocked t-shirt store completed my mission on finding a last gift to take home for someone. I thoroughly enjoyed Ben Yehuda!

    The Arab Market: Bargaining is Expected

    by VeronicaG Updated Jun 26, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As we climbed a narrow walkway, we passed through the Arab market on our way to the Jewish Quarter. Vibrant colored clothing fluttered on doorways, intricate weavings, trinkets and carved wood pieces were neatly laid out for inspection outside the shops.

    We were invited to peruse the goods inside, as shopkeepers beckoned passersby to take some the time to visit. Bargaining was expected.

    Because the buildings seemed very close to each other and the walkway narrow, this area seemed somewhat darkened.

    CHAYO: THE CARDO--The Jewish Quarter

    by VeronicaG Updated Jun 26, 2009

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Cardo is a restored section of Jerusalem featuring high-quality shops, an eatery or two and a money changer. I loved this section of Jerusalem!

    The Jewish Quarter is part of this area and was a pleasant place in which to wander. We discovered a shop by the name of CHAYO. Inside were luxurious, embroidered prayer shawls and exquisitely wrought jewelry, as well as, unique ceramic pieces. Most of our allotted time was spent looking at all the treasures within and I would highly recommend a visit. The service was excellent!

    I also found the fresh fruit and bread stands we encountered appealing (pic #2).

    Those are the best sandals you can get, I mean, if you count price per value, the sandals quality and it seems they last forever, been with them to Lapland, Africa, where ever I go, in water, in the desert or hiking mountains, ok ok, I admit, I do not wear them in the snow ;-)
