There are many transport options in the country and the most affordable of all is the bus, but modern advances in the railway system have made the trains an excellent alternative. There are 4 train stations in Tel Aviv and 6 in Haifa. Buses and trains are usually loaded with soldiers, but this should not shock tourists since these incidents are quite common. Be advised that there are no transport options during the Sabbath, so make sure to be right where you want to be between Friday sundown and Saturday sundown. You also have the option of hiring a taxi or renting a car.

Benal in Goala Heights and have a kayaking adventure on the Jordan River. For swimming and nightlife, head over to Tel Aviv, but don't forget to view the Beit-Govrin caves as well. If you want to try floating, dip into the salty waters of the Dead Sea at the Israeli border. Looking for a fantastic view of nature? Visit the Negev Desert or the Eilat Mountains.
