Israel Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 64%, Israel represents both a tinderbox of political tension and the focal point for two of the world's most significant religions. Much of this is the result of everyone wanting to claim the ancient city of Jerusalem as their own and, after a visit here, it's hard to blame them. Wandering through the winding streets of the city will be a memorable experience. The things to see and do here include the Temple Mount and Dome of the Rock, the Western (Wailing) Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and the Mount of Olives, which overlooks the city. Don't waste one moment of time as many save for an entire lifetime to experience the wonders of this fantastic city. Also keep in mind that Israel has quite a diverse range of other options to be found away from Jerusalem. Some of these include the ancient city of Masada, the Dead Sea - where you can float in the dense, salt rich waters - and the seaside resort town of Eliat, where local Israelis come to relax in the warm waters of the Mediterranean. In summary, Israel represents many things to many different people around the world and is a must for every PlanetHopper! to experience.
