What to do in Israel - Jerusalem, Eilat and more!

March 4th, 2008

What is small and contains everything in it? You guessed right…ISRAEL! From the Hermon Mountain in the north, through the beautiful green fields in the Galil, to the Israeli Coastal Plain there is so much to do! During the summer it is quite warm and the humidity is really high. If you want to cool off you can go to Jerusalem and visit the dead sea, the lowest point on the surface of the Earth to the desert, and of course Eilat in the south, where you can relax from your journey.

If you decide to stay in Eilat then you have to go to eat at the Pago Pago, they have the best steak EVER! The restaurant is inside a boat (don’t worry you will not feel sea sick), next to the King Solomon hotel walkway. Eilat is a good place for you to dive, very nice coral and colorful fish; if you stay for more then 5 days you can easily take the basic diving course and enjoy the fabulous sea world. You can then go to the Dolphin Reef on the shores of the Red Sea where a group of Bottlenose Dolphins, including babies born at the site, maintain their daily routine of hunting, playing, courting and socializing.

Another suggestion for a 1 day trip is to go to Timna Park. It is located approximately 25 kilometers north of Eilat, in the Southern Arava region of Israel. The park contains the amazing natural phenomena: King Solomon’s Pillars and Arches. You can also see the “Mines of Time”, the new multimedia exhibit with a revolving stage, 360-degree projection screen and seven projectors, create colored sand bottles and do a variety of other activities. I am sure that if you visit Israel you will have so many things to see and do that you will have to come back!
