TEL AVIV

Azrieli at night

Tel Aviv glitters as a bright diamond in the crown of the earth surface in every sense of word. It is one of the hottest tourism destinations by the Mediterranean coastline and is a world-famous centre for diamond processing. An outstanding example of urban transformation, Tel Aviv is the former capital of Jerusalem and still cited the same by some Arab communities due to territorial disputes over Jerusalem. The city is officially addressed as Tel Aviv-Yafo after the Jewish Tel Aviv and Arab-dominated Jaffa were united in the single municipality in 1950. It is the largest city in Israel that is spread over an area of 50.5 sq. km and provides accommodation to approximately 365,000 people. The sparkling blend of sun and sand by the 14km shoreline of Tel Aviv has stimulated the city’s growth as a bustling tourist resort. A wide range of hotels, restaurants, bed and breakfasts and tourist agencies encircle the beach area providing splendid views of the horizon.
Tel Aviv began its transitional journey centuries ago and brought the opportunity and hope to the Jewish community to rebuild their culture and houses over the ancient ruins. The city name means ‘spring’ in Hebrew, which signifies the revival of life and optimism of a nation. Apart from being a commercial, financial, communications, and cultural centre point of Israel, Tel Aviv has also evolved as quality education hub. The Tel Aviv University is the second largest university in Israel and the city hostels are the second home of the Israeli student community. The Jewish Diaspora Museum, the Tel-Aviv Arts Museum, the New Israeli Opera and four full-time symphony orchestras including the Israel Philharmonic are the major places of interest in Tel Aviv. Tourists prefer to take apartments for rent most of the time near these famous places and avoid the hassle of long journeys and day long trips.
