You're Going to Love Haifa

Smaller than Tel Aviv but no less beautiful and complex, the city of Haifa brings together the region's natural beauty, like mountainous climbs, spectacular scenic views of the bay, miles of Mediterranean coastline, and lush greenery. And yet, all the joys of modern living make the city a thriving center, alive with the hubbub of the Arab markets, food vendors, stalls, cinemas, malls, and shopping.
