Everyone should visit Israel! Okay, so we’re a little biased, but there are countless reasons to visit Israel, reasons which are all-too-often overlooked and ignored. Israel is a country of immense natural beauty, world-class culture, unbeatable history, and amazing people. Here are the top five reasons why you should visit Israel.
1. Jerusalem is an International Icon
Jerusalem is the holiest city in the world – holy for Jews, Christians, and Muslims. The Old City of Jerusalem is home to the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Anyone who follows these three faiths is therefore instantly interested in visiting… As well as its religious side, there are tons of other things to do in Jerusalem.
2. Tel Aviv is THE Coolest City in the Mediterranean
It’s a bit of a secret but Tel Aviv is an amazing 24 hour city of culture, events, nightlife, beaches, and more. Some reports have called the people Tel Aviv the most beautiful in the world, some reports say that the city has a nightlife which is unbeaten anywhere in the world. What is indisputable though, is that Tel Aviv is a non-stop city, a city that rivals Miami and New York, a city that’s like no other, and a city with great food, a great atmosphere, and great experiences – and even free WiFi in many neighborhoods (if you’d like to stay connected all the time, you could easily rent an Israeli SIM card here).

3. You Can Float at the Lowest Place on Earth
The Dead Sea is not only the lowest place on Earth, but is also unique in that you can’t actually swim in it. The salty waters mean that you just float… The famous pictures of people floating in the waters are true, it’s amazing! And as well as the salty waters and being at the lowest point on Earth, the mud is actually bottled and sold around the world as a beauty product – at the Dead Sea it’s free, so people cover themselves in it!
4. Diverse Scenery
The South of Israel is the Negev Desert, a beautiful landscape which is home to an immense array of natural life, natural beauty, and inspirational stories of mankind living in these harsh conditions. The North of Israel is the famous Galilee, a lush green landscape full of outdoor adventures and historic sites. What makes this even more amazing is that it’s only about 90 minutes from the desert to the Galilee. In other words, this small country is easy to explore.
5. It’s Safer Than You Think
Israel is safe! A lot of people believe it isn’t. After visiting almost everybody, is amazed at how wrong they were with the images they had of Israel before they arrived.
