Destination Information for Israel
There are a number of distinct areas of Israel, each with its own characteristics and attractions. The most developed area is the Israeli Coastal Plain, which includes the financial and commercial hub of Tel Aviv. Inland and to the North are hills, mountains and highlands, while desert covers much of the South of the country, as well as the Dead Sea on the border with Jordan.
Most visitors to Israel come to explore the religious significance of the country, and to experience first-hand some of the biblical places and ancient cities which are so well renowned. Alongside this, however, Israel has some stunning landscapes and a rich culture which is well worth experiencing. Travel to Israel can be dangerous due to unrest and political difficulties, but for explorers prepared to look beyond this issue, there is much to see and do.
