In 2013, Israel set a new record for the most number of visitors — approximately 3.54 million — and it keeps on growing. Israel has a rich historical and religious meaning for many people around the world that it’s no wonder why many people make a trip there. But did you know that Israel is also known for having the highest concentration of museums per capital in the world?
If you’re planning to go on a trip this year, here are some suggested activities and places to see:
Go on a Latter-day Saints (LDS) Israel tour.
Cruise Lady and other seasoned travelers say that an LDS tour is a unique way of seeing the Holy Land. LDS guides reveal nearly 100 scriptural references at the places included in the itinerary. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience for those who wish to go beyond the facets of tourism and experience the historical and religious significance of Israel.
Getting a tattoo is probably the last thing you’ll think of doing when you visit the Holy Land. Visit the Razzouk Ink tattoo place. This small establishment owned by the Razzouk family has been giving Middle Eastern religious pilgrims tattoos for more than 700 years. It is located in Jerusalem’s Old City; simply look for the sign “Tattoo With Heritage Since 1300.”
Visit the Ramon Crater.
This crater is not the result of an asteroid impact. Rather, the 40 km-long crater has been carved by Mother Nature through water and climate erosion. The Ramon Crater is the world’s biggest crater, with the deepest point sinking about 500 meters.
Experience the nightlife at Tel Aviv.
If you think Israel is all about religious and historical sites, you’ve been getting your intel wrong. Tel Aviv’s nightlife scene is something you need to experience to believe it. From bars to concert halls to dance centers, Tel Aviv has everything you need for a fun night in Israel with friends.
Don’t miss out on the many amazing things and sites you can do and see in Israel. Apart from LDS tours, cultural group tours are also popular. Experience Israel in a different light through the locals who can bring you to must-see places and recommended must-eat treats.
