What should I know before visiting Tel Aviv?
Consider renewing your passport if you have stamps from Arab countries
It’s rare that tourists are denied entry into Israel after arriving into Ben Gurion Airport (TLV) based on previous passport stamps, however you may be questioned if you have recent passport stamps from several Arab countries. You could avoid any hassle by renewing your passport a couple months before your flights to Tel Aviv. Also note that Israel has stopped stamping passports and issues paper visas instead, so you don’t need to worry about an Israeli passport stamp impacting future trips to Arab countries.
Many local businesses observe the Shabbat
The Shabbat, also known as the Sabbath, takes place between sundown on Friday and sundown on Saturday. This is the Jewish day of rest, with many shops and markets closed on Saturdays. Some restaurants and tourist attractions remain open, but Saturdays are a great opportunity to visit beaches or track down street art murals once you arrive on your flights to Tel Aviv, Israel.
What are the best things to do in Tel Aviv?
The centre of Tel Aviv is quickly modernising, but you can take in the atmosphere of ancient Israel at Jaffa Port. Jaffa is Tel Aviv’s oldest neighbourhood, and it has been an important Mediterranean port for several thousand years. There’s beautiful old architecture around Jaffa Port and a wide variety of attractions to see while holidaying on cheap flights to Tel Aviv. Walk along the Port, see the Clock Tower, and visit Ilana Goor Museum. You could even base yourself near Jaffa Port by browsing the accommodation options available through Webjet after your securing flights to Tel Aviv.
Tel Aviv Museum of Art
The Tel Aviv Museum of Art is the oldest art museum in Israel and showcases some of the most important works from the past several hundred years. There is a collection of European pieces that date back to the 16th century, but modern art is the primary focus of the museum. Visit the contemporary exhibits of the museum to see artistic styles such as Cubism, Impressionism and Futurism. Many international artists are shown here, and you can also explore a section of the museum dedicated to Israeli art from the 20th century.
Neve Tzedek is a unique neighbourhood tucked between Tel Aviv’s city centre and the ancient port city of Jaffa. It feels like a small and quaint village even though it’s in the centre of a major city. Neve Tzedek is one of the most artistic areas you’ll come across while visiting Israel. It’s teeming with stylish shops, art galleries, cool cafes and street art. Visit Rokach House, spend some time at the Aden Jewish Heritage Museum, and walk past the Aharon Chelouche House. You could also browse Webjet’s selection of Neve Tzedek hotels after booking cheap flights to Tel Aviv to base yourself in this exciting part of the city.
When is the best time to visit Tel Aviv?
Summer is the busiest time to travel with airfares to Tel Aviv. Daytime temperatures of about 30°C and little to no rain make this the ideal time to visit Israel’s beaches and swim in the Mediterranean. The peak season leads to many hotels increasing their rates as higher volumes of tourists arrive into Ben Gurion Airport (TLV). Get the best price on a hotel by booking with Webjet at least a few months before your trip.
Winter doesn’t see quite as many tourists as the summer, but it’s another popular time to travel on cheap flights to Tel Aviv. Many travellers book tickets to Tel Aviv during the winter to escape colder climates in other parts of the world. Daytime temperatures of around 18°C mean it’s a bit too cold for lounging on the beach, but winter is a great time to walk around the city and the Mediterranean waterfront. Don’t forget to pack an umbrella if you book airfares to Tel Aviv for a winter holiday as rain showers are common.
Consider reserving flights to Tel Aviv today for an autumn or spring holiday to enjoy nice weather without large crowds. You can look forward to daytime temperatures averaging between 23° and 25°C and more affordable hotel rates compared to summer.
