Everyday life in Tel Aviv it includes shopping in the markets in the morning, swimming at the beach in the afternoon, walking with ice cream in hand in the afternoon and partying until the next morning in the evening.

An oxymoron is the conservative and strict Jerusalem, which is almost an hour away from the modernized Tel Aviv. The city is famous for its awesome nightlife, good food and expensive living. Hearing Expensive Life one expects to see professionals in ties, running through the streets and stressed to meet deadlines. Big mistake. The feeling of the city is pretty much go with the flow.

When you ask the residents if they like living here the answer is always “Of course! We are in Tel Aviv!” and that in itself is a stimulus to learn even more about this place.


Some of the most famous beaches are Gordon, Frishman and Jerusalem beach. However, it doesn’t really matter which one you end up with. All the experience you get from there is important. The first thing you notice is that the beach is divided into those who come to relax and those who want to enjoy their activities. First, there are quite a few days when the waters are idyllic for surfing and water sports.

Also, beach volleyball, running and gymnastics are favorite pastimes of many locals. On the other hand, for those who prefer to take a break, the best option is reading a book while sunbathing while lying on the beach. It is impressive that no one feels the need to check their cell phone.


Certainly Carmel Market is the most important market in the city. It has so many spices, foods, products and souvenirs that it is an attraction. There you will get your fill of falafel, since the portions are huge. Be prepared to spend quite some time getting from one end to the other, as it is very crowded. But why should this be a problem? You are in the city where everything goes smoothly!

For a more relaxed and artistic look, the Artist Market will do you justice. From ceramics to paintings, everything is handmade by the artist-dealers themselves. Finally, the Jaffa Flea Market and the Tel Aviv Port Market also have their charms.

White City

A stroll through the area with the white buildings is well worth it, as it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2003. In the 1920s and ’30s a large number of Jewish architects, who had studied in Europe, moved to Tel Aviv. Bringing all their experience, they created a new architectural language, characterized by its asymmetry, functionality and simplicity. The architectural style was called Bachaus. Today, the cafes, bars and restaurants located there follow this style.


In contrast to the very carefully organized White City comes Florentin. The area looks more hippie. People are dressed very casually and the streets are full of graffiti. The area is one of the most dynamic and fun parts of Tel Aviv and is internationally renowned for the huge role it plays in Tel Aviv’s nightlife. It doesn’t take much preparation to go out, just the mood to have a good time.


The part of the city that escapes the skyscrapers and the modern world is Jaffa. A walk through the alleys takes you on a journey into the past. There was the harbor that has existed for about 4,000 years. The slate houses and stone streets remind you of times when merchants and sailors prayed before taking ships and heading out to sea. A walk, drinking a drink or eating ice cream is mandatory in the area. Also, the sight of the sun falling into the sea at sunset is one of the most beautiful images.

Rothschild Street

Although in the morning the street looks like a central one where you can take a walk through the trees, in the evening it turns into a wild party. The coolest clubs and bars are there, like Jimmy who and the Breakfast club. Of course, clubs exist all over the world. What makes them special in Tel Aviv is the mood of the people, to dance until the morning all together, regardless of whether they belong to the same company or to different ones. Also, secret parties are unique. These are parties, sometimes near Rothschild Street, that no one but the locals can know about. The positive thing is that if you feel like having fun there is always a way to discover them and find yourself in them.
