    are there nice hotels in Tel Aviv for less $100 per person per night?

    I stayed in the Prima Hotel next to the beach, great location. Nice hotel and very yummy breakfast!! (Even kosher if you are interested in that...). . Check it out on http://www.prima.co.il/hotel.aspx?resortID=1&LangID=2 Price should be ok, it is around 100 $, of course it depends if for single or double room. over 9 years ago

    Any recommendations for a good program for India two weeks time (I know it's short...)? And therefore better to fly into Mumbay or Delhi?

    Hm, what about the weather conditions in the south in the end of August... Kerala... It is still the rainy season, isn't it? almost 10 years ago

    is it safe to cross the israel - jordan border without a group of tourists? and what about the journey back?

    hey there, i did that trip (to petra in jordan) in january 2009 with a jewish american. first a little scary (cause you never know), but after getting used to it, totally fine! so we were two, all people we met very friendly, no bad feelings. we did a one day tour, so crossed the border near eilat early in the morning and came back at last possible time (20:00). so you'd need to be a little more precise what your concerns are...? enjoy your time there! about 10 years ago

    Advise on travel in Cambodia

    I was in Cambodia in March 2009 and after Thailand and Laos a little bit disappointed. Angkor Wat IS amazing and a must do, as well as seeing the Mekong (we went up to Kratie), but the country for me is at the moment (of course due to the sad history) overcompensating tourism as a new income factor. It is f*** expensive in relation to the richer neighbour Thailand and due to the unsecure area (mines) not recomendable to travel off the roads, meaning you are somehow bound to the touristic areas and roads :( and Siem Reap is full of rich, western tourists who just come to see the world cultural heritage and sad enough somehow shape the view of the tourists... a little bit off the track you can experience amazingly friendly people who really are interested in communication and not only dollars... about 11 years ago

    Is it safe to travel to Tel Aviv?

    I was in Tel Aviv in May 2007 and again now in January/February 2009 and always felt very safe (I also went clubbing and to a wedding...). I think fear always! starts at a personal level... In my opinion Tel Aviv is one of the safer places over there, due to economy and stuff, heading off to Be'er Sheva as one of the bigger cities (where really missiles - or whatever - came down) my feeling was a little bit stranger, but just for a second... Actually beeing there you are totally going to change your feelings about fear, it is just such a different area/way of living, to all what 'we' are usually used to... As you can see from my a little confused answer, there is no real objective answer about the safety in Tel Aviv or any place in Israel. I just love that country and the people and would go there anytime! After all millions of people live their daily life there... about 11 years ago
