Food at a very high level. Creative fusion kitchens. The vegan capital of the world. The city that never stops. Very friendly to the Lahatb community. Excellent night life, hi-tech, wonderful beach.

You should like hot weather and the beach (gets very hot and humid but I love it). Cost of living is high- even compared to other European cities – but it’s the most fun city in the world. Night life and family life in the city is great.

Tel Aviv is a hot and humid city just off the Mediterranean Sea, so I hope it is clear that the warm jackets and heavy boots of colder climates are left behind. Visiting Tel Aviv calls for shorts, tank tops, and an appreciation for near tropical weather and a perennial lack of snow; but should you visit in December, bring an umbrella, for the rainy season is as relentless as it is short.

Tel Aviv is a magical city. A city that never sleeps, Tel Aviv is filled with opportunity, excitement, and not to mention, the best beaches. There is never a shortage of fun to be had here, demonstrated by residents who somehow achieve an incredible balance within their “work hard, play hard” mentality. After a long day at their impressive jobs, ambitious Tel Avivians transform into laid back beach-goers watching the sunset, and from there, into nocturnal party animals who regularly drink the night away at the city’s multitude of unique bars.

Before moving to Tel Aviv, I suggest you have the basic understanding of Hebrew, even though English is commonly spoken. Tel Aviv is a colorful, happy community where almost anyone will become your friend. I suggest to have some patience when it comes to dealing with customer service.

A person choosing to move to Tel Aviv should enjoy city life. Tel Aviv is a vibrant city as there is always something happening. Tel Aviv has a beach and the weather is humid. The rental rates are rather expensive due to the location and many people choose to live with roommates to save on costs.

Tel Aviv is a lively and exciting Mediterranean city. It has many restaurants and cafes serving delicious food which are always filled with people, and the beach which provides relief from the sweltering humid summers. The cost of living in the city is not cheap, but there is nowhere else in Israel I would rather be.

The city is really beautiful, is a city of nightlife. I recommend it for its beautiful sea view, its history and its food; There are many people from other parts, that is why it is multicultural, it is important to mention that Tel Aviv is one of the most expensive cities in the world.
