People looking for a Mediterranean getaway should “swap ordinary for underrated” and check out Israel, a travel writer for a prominent British newspaper said this week.

“A holiday on the Med usually means Spain, France, Italy, Greece, or — if you’ve grown tired of the above — Croatia, Morocco or Montenegro. But head east — all the way east — and there’s an option that doesn’t often come to mind: Israel,” Soo Kim wrote in The Telegraph on Friday.

Kim went on the cite a number of reasons to visit Israel — including “undiscovered” beaches, “year-round” sun, “thriving” nightlife, “vibrant” food scene and “fascinating” architecture, among others.

She also noted, “With more than 230 museums spread across a relatively small plot of land, Israel is an option for sunseekers who also want culture.”

    well Brits it’s true- you can go spend money in KSA and get arrested for holding hands, or kissing, or not wearing enough cover, for being gay or trans.. and in Israel you can do all those things with no fear of arrest or deportation…great beaches, surfing, good food, wonderful people, incredible ancient & holy sites for all faiths…

    Bless you dear! We Jews do maintain a really nice country. You Brits are welcome to party, drink the local beer and see the sights.

    Well! Hooda thunk it!!

  • The Telegraph article gave ten reasons to visit Israel. And that’s only a sample of the exciting things to do in Israel.

    Seems like a great idea, the Israeli people love tourists.

    Sounds reasonable to me!

    Any travel article that gushes over the positives of a place but doesn’t mention any negatives is what I call travel writer porn. I recently read an article of that sort on an Israeli news site, and it was about a country in the Far East. A small disclaimer at the end indicated that the writer’s trip was paid for by the tourism industry. Even with such a disclaimer, I don’t think such articles should be published.
