My trip to Tel Aviv a few weeks back got turned into a really cool YouTube video, thanks to GoIsrael.de. During my weekend Tel Aviv holiday, I squeezed in A LOT of different activities, and still managed to do the entire holiday on less than 69€/day. That’s because some of Tel Aviv’s best attractions are actually free (looking at you, BEACH). And while most of my money went to some crazy nights out at Tel Aviv’s gay clubs, the cost was totally worth it. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Tel Aviv is one of my favorite cities in the entire world.
The hedonistic attitude of Tel Avivians, the beaches, the gay boys, the food and the sights—it all just comes together and creates this diverse, this super-interesting, this historically fascinating place. And it’s not just the cool things to do and see, or the weather, but it’s the fact that this is a city with an attitude. Maybe some people would find the Tel Aviv attitude a bit rough around the edges, maybe too direct, maybe too apathetic, but it’s there and it keeps the city moving. It keeps the city alive with this vibrant energy that’s so hard to find in other places.
Tel Aviv is one of the world’s most special cities. And it’s not even that expensive to visit, thanks to the many budget airlines that now operate between Tel Aviv and the rest of Europe.
