Visited (this page) : Tel Aviv, Yafo.
What a location. The beach right in the centre of town will mesmerise you and even in November there are swimmers here, joggers galore and couples walking without a care in the world. What most surprised me is how relaxed the place is, people seem really content. The centre has its old charming buildings and is by no means rich, but certainly rich in colour, sights and scenes, and never without a cosmopolitan air. Great food, and then there is Yafo, which is made for couples in love. Absolutely not to be missed.
Favourite: A tough one, but I will say the handicrafts market in town, where you see locals at work and play, and where the creativity of the nation becomes clear.
