Officially the State of Israel, this country is located in the Middle East. Bordering Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, and the Red Sea, Israel is a parliamentary democracy with great historical and religious significance. This small country could fit into the UK eleven times or into the US state of Florida eight times. It is a great destination for outdoor activities, including hiking, diving, or simply relaxing in one of the Dead Sea spas.
Israel’s economy is very diverse. While there is a large dependency on tourism, it is also a global leader in energy development (solar and geothermal) as well as in water conservation techniques. Israel industry is centred on software, communications and the life sciences. Leading exports include electronics, software, computerized systems, communications technology, medical equipment, pharmaceuticals, fruits, chemicals, military technology, and cut diamonds. Notable corporations with office space or facilities in Israel include Intel, Microsoft, IBM, Cisco Systems, and Motorola.
Entertainment And Dining Out
There is much to see and do in Israel. You can spend the day on sunny white-sand beaches or exploring rocky deserts, ancient ruins, or the historical cities of Nazareth, Akko, and Tzfat. For more modern pursuits, Haifa, Eilat, and the seaside city of Tel Aviv, offer a vibrant urban view of the country. The Dead Sea is a natural wonder situated on the border between Israel and Jordan. With a higher mineral and salt content than any other body of water in the world, it is easy to float on top of the sea and these natural properties have made it the perfect location for spa and relaxation resorts. Israel offers many Kosher and non-Kosher restaurants throughout the country. Several food specialties include Shishlik – grilled meat kabobs, Falafel – deep fried balls of chickpeas and herbs, often served in pita bread with hummus and a sesame seed sauce known as tahini.
Israel’s main international airport is Tel Aviv’s Ben-Gurion International Airport. It is situated 40 km (25 miles) from Jerusalem and 12 km (7 miles) from Tel Aviv. Israel’s second international airport is located at Ovda and serves the south of Israel, predominantly Eilat. Public transportation in Israel is efficient and inexpensive and includes taxi, bus, and train. The national bus company, Egged, has many routes running across Israel connecting the country’s cities. In the main cities of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa, buses run intra-city links and are largely used for commuter transport. Driving or using a car service is another option for getting around the country.
