Despite its relatively small size, Israel is one of the most beautiful countries in the world with a number of historic and natural sites. It represents a meeting place of the European, African, and Asian cultures and civilizations. This is the reason why you will not have a problem finding a travel agency offering affordable Israel tours. No matter where you go, you can find something that will stay in your mind forever.
Places You Should Visit
Here are some suggestions by Shavei Israel for all those backpackers, solo-travelers, and adventurers who want to experience the magic of this county from the first-row and see how the best Israel tours really look like:
- Go to the local markets. Of course, you can find everything you need in modern shopping malls, but local markets are the places where real magic happens. Here, you can buy food, sweets, local dishes, or even clothes at a very reasonable price. So, if you have a limited budget, we advise you to go there first. These places are called “shuks” and can be found in almost every bigger city. In Jerusalem, you can go to the “Machane Yehuda Market”. There you can find things that you did not know to exist. You will find a hundreds of stalls with different kinds of goods; from food, animals, spices, art pieces to clothes. The prices should be affordable, even to people with extremely limited budget, which is the reason why you should not miss this place. Even if you are satisfied with the current price, you can get it lower with a help of some good haggling (it is a tradition). If you go to Tel Aviv, you will find a similar place. Just ask locals how to find “Carmel Market.
- Book a hostel. This is a kind of religion to people who want to travel, despite their limited budget. There are many extraordinary hotels in Israel, although the biggest problem with them is that they are expensive. Thus, it is the most wise to stick to hostels. The price is the same as in other countries in this part of the world — meaning that you can spend a peaceful night and leave your stuff in a safe place — starting from $10 per night.
- Eat local fast food. Israel is famous for its delicious domestic food and you simply have to try some of these delicacies. Falafal and hummus should be the at the top of your list. They are not just yummy, they are also very cheap. The best part is that you can find them almost everywhere, by following the pleasant scent on the street. Enjoy!
