Top 10 Best Attractions in Israel

Israel has numerous resorts for both leisure and sports. While visiting the sacred historical and archaeological sites, you can linger in the unique natural scenery and fascinating geological landforms. These places range from full-fledged luxury hotels to natural-flavored campgrounds. Visitors can enjoy the comfort of a sauna and whirlpool, or choose to climb the rugged trails, participate in classical concerts and dances, or wave the flag at a roaring football game.


1. The ancient city of Jerusalem

Jerusalem's place in the world is so important, it's understandable to put her first. You need at least 4 days to see the best view of the city. When you come to Jerusalem, you must visit: the alleys of the Christian and Jewish quarters, the Tower of David, the Wailing Wall and the Cathedral of the Holy Sepulchre. In addition, the Way of the Cross on which Jesus carried the cross more than 2,000 years ago is a famous historical site, and the views of Mount Zion and the Mount of Olives are also quite spectacular.



2. The Jewish Holocaust Memorial in Israel

Everyone who comes to Israel must visit the Yad Vashem, the largest of its kind in the world. Visitors will be shocked to learn about the history of the Jewish nation and witness the suffering of Israel before the founding of the state.


3. Dead Sea

Not far from Jerusalem is the world-famous Dead Sea. The Dead Sea is the most salinized body of water in the world, and the shores of the Dead Sea are the lowest land elevations in the world. Surrounded by desert hills, the Dead Sea has a large number of beaches along the lakeshore. Tourists can float in the Dead Sea or apply nutrient-rich salt mud all over the body, which is very beneficial to health.



4. Ramon Grand Canyon in the Negev Desert

Further south lies another natural wonder worth seeing. Ramon Grand Canyon is a peculiar landform unique to the Negev Desert in Israel. The Grand Canyon and its surrounding area is Israel's largest national park.



5.The mountains of Galilee

For northern Israel, I recommend going to northern Galilee. The cool climate and the contrast of tree-covered peaks and deserts are refreshing. There are plenty of Christian attractions to choose from, such as the Sea of Galilee and Capernaum, or visit the nearby historic city of Safed for the ultimate Galilean experience.



6. The Baha'i Gardens in Haifa

Haifa City has the most lovely attraction, that is, the picturesque Baha'i Gardens. Listed as a World Heritage Site, the Baha'i Gardens are Haifa's most famous attraction, where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of Haifa City and its port.



7. Port Caesarea National Park

Port of Caesarea is best for daytime travel. Historic sights, art galleries, restaurants and beaches, Port Caesarea has it all. Walking through the old city of Caesarea is like returning to the glory days of the Roman Empire. As for whether to rest at a restaurant or play at the beach later, you have the final say.



8. Prosperous Tel Aviv

After landing at Ben Gurion Airport, perhaps the first city you go to is nearby Tel Aviv, the second largest city in Israel. I recommend spending a few days wandering the streets of Tel Aviv, browsing the city's small shops and markets, and enjoying a café or restaurant. Tel Aviv is also known for its rich nightlife, and when night falls, the streets are filled with people heading to bars and clubs.



9. Tel Aviv Port

Many of Tel Aviv's tourist attractions are scattered around the streets, but don't forget Tel Aviv's beaches. Maybe you've already planned to visit some of these beaches, but Tel Aviv's port is not to be missed. I recommend taking a trip to the harbour at sunset to enjoy the perfect sunset followed by a delicious dinner at a nearby restaurant.


10. The ancient city of Jaffa

While in Tel Aviv, don't forget to take a look at the ancient city of Jaffa. The ancient city of Jaffa is part of Tel Aviv, but very different from the rest of the city. There are small galleries and shops in the narrow alleys, which are full of attraction. Coupled with the beautiful view of the sea, this is another unforgettable day in the Holy Land.
