During April 2017 a record breaking of 349,000 tourists visited Israel – the highest number per month since the establishment of Israel. From the vast Negev desert to the vivacious cities of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, to the Tuscanesque hilltops of the Galilee, indeed, the land of Milk and Honey has a lot to offer the world traveler.
Yet for the traveler coming here, the country’s small size can be misleading – there is so much to do and to see, that even a two weeks trip is hardly enough.
Gal Mor, one of the co-founders of the famous Abraham Hostel chain, has been a world traveler for most of his life. He joins Eytan and Naor to talk about tourism in Israel, backpacking culture and more.
