Amazing city for any type of traveler. If you are with your family there are plenty of organized tours, restaurants and ofcourse culture and history to explore. For the young and maybe single, there is a ridiculous amount of nightclubs and bars to choose from. Tel Aviv, definitely the place to vacation. I've lived there for 7 years, so if you have any questions feel free to ask! Take care

Tel Aviv has lots to offer. Most of all, it's a very walkable city, full of juxtapositions. Here's my top 10 for first-time visitors:
1/ Explore the Bauhaus architecture of the city (over 4000 Bauhaus buildings in this UNESCO world heritage site. The Bauhaus museum (99 Dizengoff St) offers walking tours of the city (every Fri 10am for English speakers)
2/ Old Jaffa (see my review on old Jaffa) In addition, new areas around Jaffa are opening up Noga is becoming quite trendy with ceramic art studios and cafes juxtaposed with car workshops and old lamp shops.
3/ Shuk Carmel is colourful and there's an art market nearby on Fridays.
4/KeremHaTamanim, just behind the shuk is the Yemenite neighbourhood. The Yemenite Jews, amongst a host of other interesting aspects, are known throughout Israel for their distinctive food: Jachnun, malawach, meat soups and tzhoug chilli sauce. Small eateries in this quiet neighbourhood are ever popular with those in the know.
5/ Neve Tzedek
Another charming neighborhood filled with art shops and quaint cafes to walk around and explore. Catch a dance performance at the Susan Dellal Centre.
6/ Tel Aviv Port (see my Tel Aviv guide)
7/ Shenkin Street - where you can sample Israeli street fashion and brands.
8/ Rothschild Boulevard (see my Rothschild guide)
9/ The night scene. Tel Aviv is a party city with a great underground vibe. Ideally make friends with a local and get them to introduce you.
10/ A day at the beach - So much activity on the weekend. Find a spot, have a drink and people watch - people playing matkot (paddle ball) on the beach, drummers fresh from their 'India experience', surfers, sun bathers and more.Recommended for:

Tel Aviv is the perfect juxtaposition of old and new. From the ancient stone streets of Jaffa you can see dozend of cranes rising over the financial district as the city continues to grow. The beaches and nightlife give the city a Miami feel, but the small galleries and shops of Jaffa have a distinct artist colony vibe.Recommended for:

What an energy the streets of Tel Aviv have!
From walking down Dizengoff all day, to Shenkin Street for some of the very best shopping. It is all very excititng. There is always an abundance to do in this small but very compact city!
The beaches are fantastic and fit for anyone that enjoys fun in the sun.

defeintley one of the best cities in the world for a great nightlife.
you can have a blast time 24/7 hanging out in bars, pubs, night clubs, in the center of town, or at the beach area or even at the southern side of the city.
gay scene is great, non stop partying all week with cute guys all around.
very chic and hip style city

Tel Aviv is the ideal mix between relaxation, partying, and culture. While in Tel Aviv you are guaranteed to learn a lot about the Israeli people and have a great time. Israelis are extremely friendly and want to teach you about their country, as well as learn about yours. While your there you have to try Moon Sushi and of course the famous Aroma Iced coffee. Miles of beaches, good looking men, and endless amounts of partying...you would be crazy not to go!
