Tips And Reasons To Make A Trip Of Tourism To Israel
If there is a country that had long wanted to visit that is Israel.
There are many reasons why you may be interested in traveling to a specific country or destination, and I think that Israel is a country that arouses curiosity in the whole world … and many people also doubt it.
In this initial reflection, I want to put aside political issues, although I will tell you that precisely to understand them better I consider that the ideal is to travel to Israel.
I know many people who as a rule deny the possibility of visiting that country, and everyone has their reasons, but understanding them, and in some instances sharing them, I have always been open to know that country.
As it will be easy to assume, religious tourism is, by far, the main reason for tourists who usually travel to Israel.
Tips for traveling to Israel
As a first conclusion after
my recent visit, I will tell you that beyond religious tourism, I recommend going to Israel to all who are interested in discovering its most cultural side,
Keep in mind that during the trip you will have the opportunity to know places that are part of one of the cradles of Humanity.
And also to have a broader vision, in the field itself, of the long history of those desert lands of the Middle East, and of the successive conflicts that have had (and continue to have) place in them.
What has been my first trip to Israel has focused on the visit to Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, although I have also had the opportunity to visit the imposing Masada fortress and bathe in the waters of the Dead Sea.
From that first experience, I’ll tell you some curiosities, and I’ll give you some basic tips for your trip to Israel, which will be enriched after further trips.
From the outset, I tell you that you have direct flights from Madrid and Barcelona, which last about four and a half hours.
That is, you must bear in mind that the time difference between Israel and Spain is one hour (two hours with the Canary Islands).
But no doubt the first question that most people ask ourselves is whether it is safe to travel to Israel.
Is it safe to travel to Israel?
In the current times this is an issue that is affecting tourism in many areas of the world, including Europe, and not only the countries of the Middle East.
We each have our concept of what is safe when traveling, and we each have our limits when it comes to taking specific risks.
But I will tell you that after my trip I have contracted something that I already assumed, and that is that Israel is a country with the highest levels of security in the world.
To travel from Spain to Israel, you will not need a prior visa, which you will receive for free at the time of entering the country.
Then, in your walk through cities such as Jerusalem or Tel Aviv, the presence of police or military may be even lower than what we are already used to in European cities such as Brussels, Paris or Berlin.
