The most amazing views of Ein Avdat and the Zin Valley can be seen from Ben Gurion’s grave in Midreshet Ben Gurion. You can also see the longest valley in the Negev as a result of the water flow. According to archaeologists, Ein Avdat was populated by Nabateans and Catholic monks.
The winter months of November to March are the coldest in Israel with snow in the northern reaches of the Golan Heights, and occasional snowfall in Jerusalem. The coast experiences the heaviest rainfall at this time though temperatures in places like Eilat are reasonably pleasant still. Jerusalem and other highland areas are splendid in the summer (June - August) when temperatures are high with balmy evenings, and little chance of rain. Tel Aviv and the far south of the country are usually several degrees warmer, making it the perfect place to soak up the sun beachside. If you plan on visiting the Dead Sea or Negev Desert be sure to pack a hat to protect you from the sun. The seasons of spring (April and May) and autumn (September and October) are the best time to visit Israel when temperatures are pleasantly mild throughout the country. During these spring and autumn months pack clothes that you can wear in layers, so that whether sunny skies or cool weather you will always be prepared.

Planning a trip to Israel is just the start of an unforgettable visit to the Holy Land. This tiny country is one of the world's most exciting and diverse destinations. Before you go, you'll want to take a run-through of some useful resources and reminders, especially if you are a first-time traveler to Israel and the Middle East. Israel is a small country but also one that is extremely rich in history and culture. Bordering Egypt and the Gaza Strip to the Southwest, Jordan to the east, Syria, and Lebanon to the North, Israel leaves itself open to a gorgeous long coastline to the west. Politics aside, this country has so much to offer in terms of history – dating back as old as the world itself. Together with Jordan, Egypt, and the Palestinian Territories, Israel is part of the Holy Land and thus has some fantastic sites on offer for travelers looking to explore more of the Middle East. Here’s everything you need to know before you go to Israel, in order to make the most of your trip!
Passport stamps are no longer, so you needn’t worry about outdated advice claiming to beware of a stamp showing you have been to Israel. Instead, nowadays a paper visa is issued at entry which shows your stamp. Visas are issued on arrival (free of charge) to USA, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Irish passport holders.
Hebrew & Arabic are the official languages of Israel and the Palestinian territories, however, English is widely spoken.
Israeli New Shekel
Israel is blessed with an oversupply of doctors and contains a network of well-equipped, modern hospitals and Magen David Adom clinics, where you can get emergency treatment for flu, fevers, fractures, and upset stomachs, as well as for more serious emergencies. You are never far from good medical care. If need be, your hotel can arrange a house call with a licensed local physician who will be delighted to have a private case (and private payment). Pharmacies are well stocked, and you'll encounter many international name brands, but drug prices outside of Israeli insurance plans -- even for nonprescription medicines such as aspirin or basic anti-diarrhea medicines -- are comparatively high. Jordan and Sinai are not as well covered with major hospitals. Private consultation with a local physician will usually be relatively inexpensive.
When it comes to the customs and etiquette of Israel, most of Israelis sometimes compare themselves to the prickly pear or sabra: said to be tough and prickly on the outside yet sweet and soft on the inside. Israelis are direct in a way that might seem abrupt, even rude, in other parts of the world. Do not be offended by this as Israelis do not mean to insult or offend in any way. Directness and honesty are often valued over politeness and projection of niceness. Direct personal questions are common, and should not be taken as offensive. But Israelis are also very kind and hospitable. Strangers will gladly assist you, and make great efforts to help a lost or inquiring tourist, sometimes overwhelming you with advice and questions. When you make a friend here, they will do their best to take care of you while you’re in their country. Foreign visitors are deeply appreciated and are generally shown the utmost respect by locals. Many will even go as far as to show you around some areas in Israel as a sign of their own national pride and towards respect for tourists.
Israelis, both Arab and Jewish, will often speak openly about current events, and sometimes without prompting. There are views along the entire spectrum, from the far right Israeli settler movement to Arab nationalists, which can provide visitors with many colorful views. However, travelers should be sure to listen more than they speak. Israelis can be defensive, and often think that their opinion is the right opinion. Keep the conversation about the conflict light, and take cues from the locals.
