10 Essential Travel Tips to Make Your Stay in Israel Unforgettable

Our friends at Israel21c share tips they’ve gathered from the locals, so you can easily blend into Israeli culture and lifestyle the next time you visit. Check out the first on their list:

1. Invite yourself to dinner

Interacting with Israelis on the street won’t necessarily leave you with the best impression. But break bread with them in their own home, and you will get a whole new perspective. Plus, you get the added bonus of engaging them in conversation about whatever you like. Israelis are hard to offend, so money, politics, and religion are often not off the table. Or you can keep it light and ask for recommendations on favorite spots/activities and local culture.

Meal-sharing services and experiences, such as Nat Flat Supper Club, Betzavta and EatWith make it easy to get on the inside and create lasting friendships with Israelis.
