So you’re planning a trip to Israel, but you most definitely know that you don’t want to seem like a tourist when you arrive. So here we go! Here are the top things you should avoid doing starting with when you land. Let’s start with the easy ones: Do not try out your Krav Maga moves on the customs officials at Ben-Gurion Airport. Do not look for camels at the airport. Do not look for olive oil on the Mount of Olives. Do not confuse the Via Dolorosa with Via Veneto. Also do not pet the jellyfish.
But then there are the less obvious don’ts…like not paying for an overpriced (and maybe overrated) hotel room in Tel Aviv, and more.
