Jaffa, Tel Aviv: Something for Everyone


Jaffa, Tel Aviv is part of the #NoCollusion, No Albania for TPOL where I break my 100 country count mark. See the World Map for where I’ve been.

There is more to do in Tel Aviv than party. Or so I’ve heard. One thing I did do was go to the fabled town of Jaffa, the port city from which Jonah departed before being swallowed by a giant mammal. The flea market is a major attraction as are the beach and small cafes.

Within the old town was this beautiful building.

Another reason to visit Jaffa is for the Arabic food. There are many shawarma places and many falafel stands. I was told to go to Abu Hassan, but unfortunately it was closed when I arrived.

Abu Hassan or not, this was a great falafel sandwich

All you can eat turshee (Arabic pickles)

After a light lunch, I passed the Jaffa Clock Tower onto another attraction of Jaffa – the beach.

As I made my way along the coast, I came across a small bar and a place to sit and watch the sunset.

Per the previous post, not the label on top, this reads ‘Goldstar’

The day was capped off by a delicious feast at the famous restaurant, Old Man And The Sea. Kebab anyone?


I won’t judge you if you party all night but save some energy to visit Jaffa.
