Israel is not a holiday destination unless you book yourself in the hotel
by the Red Sea and lie in the sun all day.
There is just so much history in the country to learn from and many amazing holy sites and old buildings to see that you have to prepare yourself for an educational learning trip about the cultures and beautiful sites.
There are a few things to know before you travel to Israel when you don’t have a travel agent or guide that can give you all the information.
Just like any other outside country, you have to do research before you go. This place might take a bit more than just research though. You have to make sure you know what to wear in certain areas and show your respects as tourists because don’t forget that you are representing your country and it’s not just about representing yourself.
Also, read up on the politics and you’ll understand why there is such an unrest between Arabs and Israelis. When you are making use of public transport or find yourself in the local areas when backpacking, that is where you might experience some of the differences or a sense of unrest between the two cultures.
