Born in 1909 and grew into a fantastic, beautiful, and vivid city, where the lights never go out, and the sun is shining even in winter. With an unstoppable beat, unbeatable beaches, friendly people, superb nightlife, and an electric atmosphere, Tel Aviv is a wonderful place to feel alive.

The city is a leading force in Israel's culture, art, finance, high-tech, and architecture. The white city, the compounds of Bauhaus, and the International Style buildings in Tel Aviv grant the city a very special character. Therefore, it was declared as a World Cultural Heritage site by UNESCO. Jaffa and its magical alleyways and port are also adding the city a unique architecture and an absolutely stunning antique charm.

Tel Aviv is over 100 years old and Jaffa's age can be counted in thousands, but both have a young and fresh spirit. It is modern but respect, preserve, and restores the past. It is also famous for its great nightlife with bars and clubs that open almost all night long.

The city and its residence also show consistently strong support in the LGTBQ community and have one of the fabulous Pride Parades in the world. It is a favorite LGTBQ tourism destination and is considered one of the best cities for gays to travel to.

Tel Aviv is the place where you will always find delicious food, fun activities for every age and gender, plenty of shopping opportunities, great weather, and maybe even friends for life.

Jaffa


A fusion of old and new, Jaffa is a place where different cultures and religions meet and thousands of years of history come to life. As one of the oldest city ports in the world, Jaffa has a magical atmosphere at its charming alleyways, countless hidden gems, and a spectacular view of the Mediterranean. In the past decades, Jaffa underwent a revival process and is brimming with preserved historical attractions, restaurants, cafés, shops, and vivid nightlife. If you are coming to Tel Aviv, Jaffa, and especially the Old City, is an absolute must.

Top LGTBQ Destination


Crowned by many as the top gay-friendly city in the world, Tel Aviv is a great supporter of the LGTBQ community. As a liberal, an open-minded city with accepting residents, governmental assistance, municipal facilitation, and a fabulous Pride parade - Tel Aviv is a gay paradise. Here you will not find any "gay quarter", gays are simply everywhere and the community visibility is indisputable. Load and clear, active, and vocal, the LGTBQ community has a large representation in the city population, cultural life, and sensational Tel Aviv nightlife. Tel Aviv is firmly loyal to the LGTBQ community and the LGTBQ community hugs the city in return.

Buses & Travel card


Tel Aviv is highly accessible by public transport and most of the public transport relies on buses which usually arrive between 5 to 15 minutes during weekdays from 5 AM to midnight. Several night lines operate during the night, but on Shabbat (Friday afternoon until Saturday night), there is no public transport and you may use other alternatives as taxicabs and service taxis.

It is not possible to pay directly to the driver. Therefore it is highly recommended to buy the smart card (Rav Kav) which allows you to get daily, weekly or monthly passes, or use designated applications.
