I'm ready to book a trip to Israel and am looking for some advice/help to decide what and how to do it.
I'm a 27 year old single guy from California and would be traveling alone for leisure. I definitely want to stay in Tel Aviv as it seems to be a modern lively city. I haven't booked any flights or hotels or made any itineraries, but I want to leave as soon as possible maybe this November for 7-10 days. I'd like to stay in a more modern hotel like The Diaghilev or something similar with modern amenities. I know it might be last minute and may cost me more, but it's ok because I've set aside money to travel.
I really don't know exactly what I'm going to do once I arrive there, but I guess I'm just kind of going on a whim. I know I'd like to take a trip to Jerusalem and see the sites, but I'd also like to have some fun.
1. Would Tel Aviv, Israel be a fun place for a single male traveling alone? 2. Is it easy to meet people and make acquaintances? 3. Is it expensive? 4. Is November a good time to go? 5. Should I go through a travel agency to get the best deals?
Any friendly advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
