What travelers say about kimkim

Reviews from kimkim travelers who recently returned from their adventures

Introducing Israel

Israel has quite a timeline—and from its ancient cities to ultra-modern Tel Aviv, its many iterations are vibrantly evident. With millennia-old religious sites, uniquely middle eastern cuisine, swimmable Mediterranean coastline, and world-class hiking, the travel appeal to this many-layered country is universal.

When is the best time to visit? 
Spring and fall are the sweet spots here—specifically May and September. Summer (June through August) is simultaneously busy and very hot. You'll find popular sites and Tel Aviv's sandy beaches packed with people during the day, though mornings and evenings (and the excellent, air-conditioned Israel Museum) provide respite. December through February is chilly and wet, but the end of winter brings excellent conditions for hiking in the northern Golan Heights region: wildflowers and mild temperatures abound. Keep religious observances in mind throughout the year; this is a country that goes quiet during holidays.

How many days do I need?
Israel is small in size, but substantial in terms of history and culture. Those with limited time could check out Jerusalem's highlights in a day or two; travelers planning for 3-5 days can also visit the Galilee region or the beaches of Tel Aviv. If you plan to spend at least a week, you can do all of that and more: lounge by the Red Sea in the resort town of Eilat, visit Bethlehem, Jericho (the world's oldest city), and other important Biblical sites, or head into neighboring Jordan for an extended adventure. 

Things to Do in Israel
Visiting Jerusalem's Old City is an absolute must. Weave through the maze of market alleys, making your way through the Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and Armenian quarters. While in Jerusalem, you'll also want to visit the Machane Yehuda food market for falafel, rugelach, and za'atar. Stroll down Tel Aviv's funky Dizengoff Street, take a surfing lesson, and explore the 4,000-year-old port city of Jaffa. Head north to visit beautiful Haifa, mystical Safed, ancient Acre, and the rolling hills of the Golan Heights. And of course, don't forget to take a dip (er, float) in the buoyant waters of the Dead Sea.
