The Biblical Holy Land

Israel is a diverse landscape of Biblical sites, deserts, mountains, and lush greenery with a pleasant climate. Jerusalem is the historical capital of Israel, while Tel Aviv is the vibrant seaside city. Despite the ongoing conflicts in the country, you’ll unlikely notice anything as long as you stay in the big cities or tourist areas.



The best time of year to visit Israel is in Spring  (March to May) or Fall (September to November) because the days are pleasantly warm, with temperatures around 26C/79°F and cool nights. It can be pretty hot during the day from June to August, with average temperatures of 32C/90°F.


The northern part of Israel is characterized by a Mediterranean climate, while the southern part is arid. Israel’s climate is characterized by hot summers and mild winters.





The official language is Hebrew, although Arabic and English are also spoken.



The Israeli Sheqel (NIS) is the official currency of Israel.


Banks & ATMs: 

The leading banks in Israel are Bank Hapoalim, Bank Leumi, Bank Mizrahi-Tefahot, and First International Bank of Israel (to name a few). ATMs are available everywhere.

Plugs and Sockets:

There are three associated plug types, C, H and M. Plug type C is the plug which has two round pins, plug type H has three pins in a triangular shape, and type M has three round pins.

Israel operates on a 230V supply voltage and 50Hz.

Consider carrying a universal adapter.


Local Culture: 

Israel is the birthplace of the Jewish culture encompassing philosophy, literature, poetry, art, mythology, folklore, mysticism and festivals, as well as Judaism, which was also fundamental to the creation of Christianity and Islam.

Please make sure to respect religious sites and dress conservatively.



Surprisingly, Israel is a very safe country to travel to, but avoid non-essential travel to the Israeli border on the Gaza Strip. We highly recommend hiring an official local tourist guide.


Flight Connections:

EL AL is the national carrier for Israel, but many International airlines also fly to Israel.

Check WayAway or  Skyscanner for great airfares.
