About Tel Aviv Yafo: Known for its 24 hour-a-day hustle and bustle atmosphere, Tel Aviv’s nonstop attitude gives it the sense of a much larger city like New York or Tokyo. Although you'll find thousands of locals and tourists enjoying the Mediterranean coastline, climate and café culture, Tel Aviv is not in your average beach vacation. While Tel Aviv is just over 100 years old, the southern area of Jaffa is home to one of the oldest port in the world. Take a look at the Museum of the Jewish Diaspora to learn about the history of Jewish culture. Shoppers should head to Sheinken Street, where the hip and beautiful dictate Israeli style. Buy outfit here for the nightclubs; Tel Aviv pulsates 'til the wee hours. Care for a quieter evening? Tel Aviv is known for its international smorgasbord of excellent restaurants. A wide range of sleeping options, including soulful hotels and economical hostels (many with double and private room) means there's something for every budget.
