MLMT invites you to feel the quiet thunder of Israel. It is not just a country. It is a treat for the senses.
In the haze of dust, lie markets tumbling with spices. Aromas collide creating the impression that could only be Israel. Groves and canyons go deeper than oceans. The sheer majesty of these humongous structures can shake you to your bone. Chicken sizzles with the punch of anger in some forgotten corner. Every bite sits right with your soul. The deep rumble of a darbuk reverberates in every wall. Eyes shut. Prayers converged towards the one true good. The call of the muezzin. The ancient walls and pathways that run to nowhere. This is Israel. It is a tradition at its finest.
Israel is meat cooked to absolute perfection. Israel is mirrored reflecting the past. Israel is the scent of dust muddled with the subtle saffron. Israel is tension. Israel is breath held. But Israel is also breath taken in awe of the beauty. Israel stays right where it is. In a quiet haze. Still. Aloof. Powerful. Beautiful.

When to visit?
For all the hikers out there, February is the best time to visit. That is if you do not mind a bit of moisture. One of the most popular times to go here is the Jewish festival of Purim, which is a big weeklong event in March. May also makes for an excellent time to go. Beautiful skies and no crowds. June to August invite hordes of traffic towards Israel. Try not to go during October and Yom Kippur because you will not find anything open. If, you go during December and early January you might get to see the typical celebrations with midnight mass and Bethlehem.
Average Cost per person
Israel is ever growing and has been continuously developing for the last few years especially regarding travel. This has caused the prices to go quite high. It is still not the most expensive place on earth but is a lot more exquisite than before. Hostels and other accommodation are quite reasonable though. But to get a place more luxurious, it goes high. Transportation is relatively decent as well. The food here is something else altogether. Maybe that is why it is that expensive. Alcohol here is ridiculously exuberant.
Anyone who wants to go to Israel for a short stay gets a visa known as the B/2 Visa. This one is only valid for about 90 days from the day of issue. If one wants to stay here longer than the given time they can get the dates and times extended as per their visit. You must provide the proof of financial security. You also have to give the details of your round flight tickets. Israel requires you to have overseas medical insurance of a specified amount. As always one needs to get checked up to prove that they are physically and mentally fit.

Tel Aviv screams of new. There is always something blooming in every corner here. In spring Tel Aviv means, “Hill of Spring” and it very rightly lives up to its name. The glistening beach reflections are generally celebration laden. Watching the sun come up here takes you a little bit closer to experiencing God. Parties are in abundance in Tel Aviv. Go sip wine at a swanky, sophisticated bar or go to a chill beach sing-along.

Haifa is the entire world culminated in one place. It is full of smartly planned German colonies, Arab-Christian quarters and other edgy ports. The sights this city gives you is never enough in one visit. Tropical gardens are here by the eyefuls. The atmosphere here changes from one step to the other.
The city was planned to be Levant’s main port for transport. But this idea was demolished in 1948 because of the incidents that progressed. The city’s Arab population were expelled. Now the city is built on the coexistence between the Arab and Jewish community.

Children laugh with glee as they come here. This is their biggest adventure. Even though they are always grinning, the place does not guarantee peace at all times.

A small piece of land jutting out into the Mediterranean, Akko is a gentle sea breeze blowing your hair onto your face.

Once in the year, for five days in the Negev desert, Israel eradicated all the social norms and constructs of life. This is the time where only creativity and self-expression are fed. People from all over come here and splash their creative juices all over the place. It really is quite a sight.
Jerusalem under the ground
The sweltering heat of the old city of Jerusalem will not let you enjoy the views to the fullest. But away from all the mush and rush, like a series of tunnels, remnants of the 2,000 years old city. Weave through the Western Wall and Zedekiah’s cave and be mesmerized by the hidden treasures. Feel a part of the movies as you tour through.
Rosh HaNikra grottoes
The north of Israel, just a hair’s breadth away from Lebanon lie these mysterious and marvelous formations. These odd, geographical formations form one of the quirkiest places to visit in Israel. Take the steep cable ride down and view the caves and the pools around. This experience is a real treat for the eyes.
Dead Sea Float
A trip to Israel is not complete without experiencing the Dead Sea. It is the lowest point on earth. That in itself is a sight to behold. But not only that, but it is also the saltiest water body in the world. Slather yourself in natural mud and replenish and rejuvenate yourself. Let the holy place heal you. It is an unreal experience.
The dialogue in the Dark
Those who want to experience for a while the hardships of being blind and how life is for them can go to this exhibition. It is unreal and will give you chills. A visually impaired guide will take you through various real-life simulations and situations like walking through a park or so. It is significant, and you will walk out being thankful for your vision.
A lot of right Israelis follow this rule. It is like halal food for the Muslims. You will generally see this in their menu. They do not mix dairy and meat in this one. Even though a lot of young people do not adhere to it anymore, it is essential to know.
Israel is widely talked about place in this sense. There is a lot said about the things that go on here. But that does not mean it is unsafe to live in. In fact, people have noted that the security is extremely tight. The airports tend to have really long lines.
It is entirely unexpected for most people that go here, but Israel is quite expensive as a place. The food and the alcohol are very highly priced, and one must be careful about what they want to spend in. Even the groceries here are quite expensive.
A lot of countries in the world do not allow smoking inside the bars and other places. But here in Israel, that is not the general construct. People smoke cigarettes everywhere. This is great for die-hard smokers but a horrible fate for the ordinary masses.
