Your Israel trip is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so it's important to make the most of it. Here are a few tried and tested tips to make the journey better and more enjoyable for everyone involved.

1. Bring a bathing suit –

Sure, Israel may seem like a desert, but there is a surprising amount of water and water-related activities that you will enjoy. From the Sea of Galilee and the Mediterranean sea, to the Red Sea, the Dead Sea, and all the springs in between, Israel has some of most beautiful beaches and natural springs around.

2. Try new foods –

Israel has been known to produce some delicious and exotic foods. Even if you've tried Israeli delicacies back home, nothing beats the original. There are probably several dishes and snacks you have not yet heard of - don't be afraid to experiment! Try a bit of everything, your palate deserves it.

3. Cell Service –

Get an Israeli SIM card for your phone. You can replace your existing SIM easily without affecting your phone, and share your pictures and videos instantly. Israel’s 4G internet coverage is countrywide, allowing you to use your smartphone as usual throughout your trip. With an Israeli SIM, you won't miss out on anything!


4. Explore –

If you have a few minutes anywhere, just explore the area. Whether walking down ancient alleyways or through budding new neighborhoods, Israel is an amazing place to roam and see new things. It's also a great place to make friends. Both Israelis and fellow tourists are easy to strike up conversation with.


5. Hydrate –

Israel is at times exceptionally hot. Unfortunately, dehydration is not unheard of, and sometimes it's hard to tell that's what's happening before it's too late. Make sure that you bring water everywhere and that you are constantly drinking. It’s delicious, and life-saving!
