I came across this interesting article on my email from a Travel Gazette and it was obviously fed by the Israel Ministry of Tourism however it is something that I have wanted to blog about for the longest time. In my part of town as well as in many Christian cities all over the world, it is the sacred places which comes to mind when Israel is mentioned.
However during my various trips to this beautiful country through the decades, I have seen and learned about other charming sites, historical and archeological finds which will surely be attractive to tourists.
Allow me to mention this lifting from the emailed information and interspersing with my experience.
Located in Israel’s northwesternmost corner, Rosh Hanikra is a 650-foot-deep, naturally formed cavern known for its sparkling turquoise waters and massive rock formations. Visitors to Rosh Hanikra can descend into the grottos via cable car after admiring the rugged Mediterranean coastline.
Located in the beautiful city of Haifa, even religious groups do not fail to go down and take photos of this colourful and well kept garden. It is specially pretty during spring when flowers are in bloom.
For the wine-loving traveler, Israel is replete with world-class wineries offering wine tastings and master classes, including Tishbi, Binyamina and Rimon in the north, and in the south, Sde Boker Winery, Carmey Avdat and Neot Smadar.
MARKETS AND CULINARY EXPERIENCES
And from the Golan Heights in the north to Negev Desert in the south, travelers in Israel can partake of unexpected dining experiences, including cooking classes in Mizpe Matat with celebrated Chef Erez Komorovsky, high-end restaurants overlooking the Ramon Crater and home-cooked meals with EatWith, a new culinary experience allowing gourmets to dine in the homes of Israeli families.
In addition to the cooking class experience, included usually are visits to the colourful markets of the city such as Machane Yehuda in Jerusalem, Carmel Market in Tel Aviv or the various small markets in the old city of Jaffa.
