Whatever your reason for flying to Israel, it’s bound to be a spiritual journey. A trip to the Western Wall or a swim in the Dead Sea are just a few of the reasons why travellers of all faiths and all walks of life flock to this destination year after year.

It is no secret that Israel has served as a centre for religious and political tension for centuries.  Therefore, a common concern for those planning a trip to the country is over safety.  However, despite news coverage of war in different parts of the region, it is safe to visit and remains a very popular tourist destination.  Of course, as with anywhere else you may travel to today, it is always good to keep your common sense and wits about you.

There are some cultural and religious rules to keep in mind when visiting Israel. Jews cannot eat dairy and meat together, and Muslims and Jews are forbidden from eating pork at any meal. The falafel and schnitzel are common foods found throughout Israel, and if you’re visiting Israel on a Friday night, remember that it’s the Sabbath (the Jewish Holy Day) and observant Jews are not permitted to cook so many family-owned restaurants will be closed.
