Ultimate Tel Aviv Guide by Neighborhood

May 04, 2020
Let's face it, some of the most well-known cities in the world are just too darn crowded nowadays. Even when you're just dropping by for a visit, you'll instantly feel that you're being suffocated with the hordes of crowds that gather there. What more if you decided or you have to stay? When looking for a place to go and stay for a period of time, it might work better to explore options that aren't so popular. And yet, when you actually get to be in that place, you'll realize that it should have been popular all along! A great example of this is Tel Aviv.

Florentin

When you think of trendy neighborhoods, you'd probably think of Brooklyn in New York or Montmartre in Paris. But Florentin in Tel Aviv is right up there! A have for artists and bohemians, the area retains a cool and nonchalant attitude. It's a place where you can discuss new ideas with like-minded people, or even change theirs with your own. A place where art is more than just a mode of expression, it's a way of life. In many ways, this town is as edgy as any other contemporary neighborhood out there. but there are still a whole host of cafes, restaurants, and more that upholds a rather mainstream charm.

Hatikva

There's no harm in dabbling into the local culture a bit. Whether you're staying at a place for a month, a year, or a lifetime, it pays to understand and to immerse yourself into their culture. It will better make a stamp on you as having stayed there for a period of time. And her in Tel Aviv, a good place to really soak up the local lifestyle is the Hatikva neighborhood. With markets, mom & pop stores, and the like, you'll really get a taste of what it's like to be from here.

Hayarkon

Tel Aviv isn't exactly known for being a relaxation haven, is it? You'd rather think of places like Bali and Dubai when it comes to that. However, there is a certain area within the Israeli capital that's all about recreation. It's the Hayarkon neighborhood. Dominated by spacious parks and shopping districts, it's a place where you can just let go and relax. A place where you can play and exercise without letting your troubles worry you. An area where you can take retail therapy to forget all about your stress. Ultimately, it's a family-friendly neighborhood fit for a peaceful life ahead.

Jaffa

Who wouldn't want to stay at a place full of history and culture? In an area where just about everywhere you step, you're actually touching some scared ground! Well, such a place is the Jafa district in Tel Aviv. Both historically and biblically significant, this place is one of the oldest spots in all of the world. It's even said that this was the first neighborhood built by the sons of Noah right after the 40-day rain and flood that wiped out most of humanity. So this is place is practically holy, in essence! Today, however, it's a nicely preserved historical part of the city.

Neve Tzedek

It's said that the second oldest neighborhood in Tel Aviv, right after Jaffa, is Neve Tzedek. But you wouldn't know it when you go here. Today, this place is full of contemporary and trendy establishments fit for young and weary travelers. Think artisanal coffee shops full of writers and artists. Or art galleries and spaces where those same artists present their work. Stylish stores that offer some of the best and brightest of Israel's designers.  Not to mention a lively nightlife scene that will make you forget that this area was probably mentioned in the bible!

The White City

The White City might not be as exciting as other neighborhoods on this list, but it's worth checking out (and even staying for a bit) for its beautiful architecture alone. Many of the buildings here subscribe to the famous Bauhaus movement of the early 20th century. Many German immigrants moved to this part of the Israeli capital and made their presence known with such stunning works. Though the neighborhood itself is just like any other in the country, the visual feast that it offers will fascinate you every day. You won't get tired of looking at them when you're staying here!

Yemenite Quarter

Who would have thought tha tone of Tel Aviv's oldest neighborhoods will also become one of its trendiest? At first glance, you'll notice tha tit's a hub of tradition, full of family-owned businesses and places of worship as far as the eye can see. But come nightfall, the nightlife takes over here and it's as bangin' as ever! Clubs and bars play the best music here, and many cafes stay open until the wee hours of the night, catering to the young and creative. Even though it's one of the oldest hubs in all of the country, there's no harm in staying here if you're a young traveler!

Don't overlook Tel Aviv as a possible new home just because it's not as popular a city as the likes of New York, Paris, or Rome. Sure, it's not the most-visited place on Earth, but that's part of its charm. As well as its historic significance and openness to embrace youth culture!
