Travel | Tel Aviv - Inside Israel’s Key City
Shalom from Tel Aviv, following our ethos of independent living, we have tapped into our network to unlock our insider narrative for a destination that is enriched in a diverse cultural background, in the age of everything that is pleasure. Yes, we're sure you've heard of the nightlife, the beaches and the food, but here at the Consciously Connected Travel, we go against the grain. Immersing you deeper into a destination, and letting you get the most exclusive all access pass to the best bits of Tel Aviv, from where to we eat, sleep, play and who or what to discover.
Typically when one hears “Israel,” ancient cities like Jerusalem and Nazareth come to mind. Tel Aviv is truly one of the Middle East’s most emerging and hip destinations to explore. In the city’s famous marketplaces you’ll find all your vintage dreams come true, and with new restaurants and clubs seeming to open every week, this small city certainly gives you the ultimate taste of big city life.
Waking up in Tel Aviv is like waking up in the likes of Paris, Barcelona, and Lisbon. So what is it that makes this place so mystical? Is it in the nonchalant setup of interactive street cafes and jam sessions taking place on every street corner? Is it how the locals remain so chic after continuous roaring night adventures? Or is it how chaos and calm can harmonize so well together in a city that is constantly alert? Whatever the case may be, Tel Aviv makes for a seductive love affair.
The Mediterranean metropolis is extra hip, made up of the coolest people, trendy boutiques, an amplified art scene and home to the gay capital of the Middle East. Yet a simple hangover can make all things too familiar, making the hip very homelike. From revisiting our fav kebab spots, or making a reservation at a rooftop bar we religiously go to for our daily sundowners. By the time we've hit day 7 we're packing our bags and getting ready to jet off again. We realise that a place that seemed freshly explosive and new in so many ways, easily became a hometown for our memories and close friend connections. Tel Aviv is a lot to take in and we bring you the ultimate scope on how we take it all in, one moment at a time, every story to be told and each experience to be encountered.
