Street Markets

By backpackguru in Souvenirs
Tel Aviv is a modern city, with an excellent party vibe and beautiful beaches. It has a completely different feel than it's nearby neighbor, Jerusalem. There are many international restaurants to choose from and tons of clubs to visit. One of the most interesting parts of Tel Aviv is the markets though. You can find fresh Mediterranean produce, homemade arts and crafts, among other things around these great street stalls. You can pass several hours checking out what people are selling. Some of the more interesting booths have photography from around Israel. The photography has managed to capture scenes at the Western Wall and various events than an outsider would never be able to capture.
