Expatriate Insurance News: Tel Aviv 'is a bustling city'

Expatriates may wish to purchase international health insurance and relocate abroad to Tel Aviv.

Spokeswoman for the Israel Government Tourist Office Louise Evans explained the destination "enjoys year-round sunshine".

Furthermore, it is located on the beach and its architecture is beautiful, she added.

Calling it a "buzzing metropolitan city", the expert pointed out it has attractions for a wide variety of people.

It is becoming a "very gay-friendly city", Ms Evans declared, noting a pride parade takes place annually, while the nightlife and café culture is also very good.

"They're really pushing Tel Aviv as a gay destination" and it is now particularly accepting of this demographic and is becoming "one of the gay capitals of the world", she claimed.

However, there is also the religious aspect to the area, with Old Jaffa nearby providing the traditional route to Jerusalem, the expert stated.

Ms Evans said that "culture vultures who want to go and explore" might enjoy the region's art galleries, whereas more active individuals could appreciate the watersports, scuba diving or hikes through the hills that can be enjoyed in the city.

Furthermore, the Dead Sea has a very high salt content that means people can float on it.

This is "the lowest place below sea level on Earth", she stated.

According to the British government's Foreign and Commonwealth Office, people should avoid entering Gaza, as the ceasefire between the Israeli government and Hamas is particularly fragile.

Places visited by expatriates and foreign travellers could be hit by indiscriminate terrorist attacks and comprehensive overseas insurance policies covering all possible events should be taken out before travelling there, it suggests.

Other crimes are generally not a problem in the country, but driving is erratic and care must be taken on the roads, the government body recommends.

People should dress moderately and carry identification around with them at all times, it advises.
