Tel Aviv, Israel summarized
Israel is Israel's second most populous city, second only to its capital. The city is a relatively young one, founded only a century ago by Jaffa, a Jewish Community. The city hosts numerous international offices and embassies, making it Israel's international proxy capital of sorts. Situated as an ancient port city situated on the coastline of the Mediterranean, Tel Aviv's transformation has been witnessed by the White City, comprising the largest concentration of Bauhaus architecture in the world, and was recently listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Lonely Planet's hottest city of 2011 enjoys a variety of names. It has been named by the Travel + Leisure Magazine as the third-best destination in Africa and Middle East, the National Geographic's top 9 beach city, and Mediterranean's New Capital of Cool. Though its numerous monikers seem quite interesting, nothing compares to seeing the sights in its actual glory. The city that never sleeps enjoys a wonderfully diverse nightlife scene, and is renowned for its 24-hour culture and cosmopolitan lifestyle.
