It’s no surprise that Tel Aviv has lately become a very popular travel destination as it is vibrant, dynamic and cosmopolitan. Tel Aviv is famous for its beaches, nightlife, music, art, food and style. It is one of a kind city with a mix of old and new. Having road-tripped around in Israel, Tel Aviv is where I felt most at home as it’s no different to London in that there are so many trendy places to eat and drink, designer stores, and all the things we millennials love. But the good thing is that it’s warm, sunny and has beaches! In this post you’ll find a long list of things to do in Tel Aviv as well as where to stay and how to get to and around the city.
Things to do in Tel Aviv
Walk or take a tour of Tel Aviv’s Old Jaffa
Jaffa (also known as Yafo) is the ancient port city out of which Tel Aviv has now grown. Jaffa has, in recent years and like much of Tel Aviv, been regenerated with its old narrow streets and courtyards becoming another highly desirable part of Tel Aviv. Jaffa is a real melting pot of Jewish and Arab populations living and breathing the same closely-packed air. A great way to explore Jaffa is through this 1-hour segway tour!
We decided to take a two week trip to Israel and Jordan, flying to Israel from London. When planning Jordan we were faced with a challenge: how do we get from Israel to Jordan?
We soon found it wasn’t super easy and mostly, it was very time consuming to go from Israel to Jordan on your own. So instead we decided to take a tour and Abraham Tours had great reviews! So we booked the 3-day tour to Petra and Wadi Rum from Jerusalem.
Looking to take many gorgeous pictures in London in little time? Then definitely hit up Elizabeth Street in Belgravia by Victoria Station, London’s most instagrammable street!
So what makes Elizabeth Street in Belgravia the most instagrammable street in London? Well, it might have started with patisserie Peggy Porschen making cute cakes and cupcakes as well as calling everyone’s attention with it’s pinkness and floral displays. Many other stores followed making this Belgravia street the go-to one for London’s influencers and Instagrammers.
So here’s the run down of the most insta-worthy places on Belgravia’s Elizabeth Street.
Note: most of my outfits featured in this post can be found in my 21buttons account.
Dominique Ansel Bakery
This bakery in Belgravia is responsible for inventing the Cronut and is on this list because of its seasonally changing flower arch and flower terrace. It also does innovative afternoon teas that are so incredibly instagrammable. Book an afternoon tea, or pop in for a take away item, everything they do is extremely instagrammable!
Printsfield reached out to me about collaborating with them. I quickly checked what they do, they basically do personalised socks. It could either be socks with your face on them, socks with your pet face on them, socks with your boyfriend’s face on them, socks with your son’s face on them, basically personalised socks with faces and cool backgrounds to with them. The background for the personalised socks could be food, or valentines day patterns, or even funny stuff like a cosmic background or emojis.
Obviously, Shanti is thrilled with my cheeky personalised socks order and I’m so happy with these customi socks! They are good quality and mostly I think they are the perfect gift. I always have no clue what to give some people as gifts and can think about so many loved ones that would enjoy these as a gift! For instance, my sister would love a pair of personalised socks with her dog’s face on them and I’m sure my mom wouldn’t mind one with my or my sister’s face on them either. There are also personalised socks with Christmas motives so I might get those for Christmas to those back home. It’s such a funny gift as well and also a really thoughtful one if you know that someone is really obsessed with their pet or even with some type of food, as there are personalised socks with food items. It’s kind of bizarre funny don’t you think?
