Accommodation Options on Your Holy Land Trip

Since my goal is to get you over to Israel, it might be a good idea if I go through some of the accommodation options available on your trip to Israel. Basically, you have the following three options:

* Hotel

* Guest House (Bed & Breakfast)

* Hostel (& Budget accommodation)

Hotels in Israel Israel has some mighty fine hotels these days, and caters for all tastes and budgets. I won’t be recommending any particular hotel, but after some extensive research (unfortunately that research hasn’t meant sleeping in some of Israel’s tastiest hotels…though we have managed to grab a night or two in some of them over the years) I’ve come to the conclusion that a hotel review site such as will probably provide you with some of the best Israel hotel deals out there on the Web.

Israel does have the usual international big players, so if you’re used to that level of hotel, I’d say stick with it. What could be more of a risk, but an interesting risk, is a stay at one of the boutique hotels that have recently been popping up throughout Israel, especially in Tel Aviv. Google and enjoy!

Guest Houses in Israel Israel has a number of great guest houses, some of which you can find on a kibbutz, most however, are privately owned. These bed and breakfast type places can be found all over the country, but in the North are particularly popular for Israelis looking for a short weekend break. Prices can range from 250 shekels per night for something very basic, to 1000 shekels plus per night for a bit of luxury. These guest house/B&B places are often known by the name Zimmer.

Our own personal recommendations for guest houses are to visit the north, and in particular to check out the moshavs Amirim and Had Ness. You also can’t go wrong in Rosh Pina, a small town with amazing views over the Galilee.

Hostels in Israel Israel also has some great budget accommodation, ranging from dorm beds in Christian youth hostels, to private rooms in hostels just a step away from the beaches of Tel Aviv. I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing hostel life, and, in the right place, it can take your trip to another level. You get to meet up with other travellers from all over the world, people often looking for the same experiences and fun.

One hostel we know from our (very) early days in Israel and that we can heartily recommend for that backpack/traveller experience: the Old Jaffa Hostel in Tel Aviv/Jaffa. Unique atmosphere and still charming, by all accounts.

An Educational Trip – Aids Within The Learning Method

Educational trips or tours help remind us of our school days. The term ‘educational tour’ is self-explanatory. In easy terms an educational tour is something carried out to acquire understanding while travelling and touring to some location. Such tours are usually undertaken in schools and educational institutions. It provides students with an opportunity to discover to an entirely new environment and to think out of the box.

Educational trips need not cover far destinations. As already stated, an education trip is done to gain understanding there is completely no need for you to go very far to have it. Often, an educational trip could possibly be within your hometown itself. While planning a trip inside the same country, institutions normally select historical locations and museums. Any historical trip will give the students the chance to check out buildings, models, and documents that can provide them with total knowledge of a particular event. Going to these locations assist in learning about your country and world better.

Various cultures have different understanding and a distinct manner of perceiving issues. So while planning a trip in another country, it’s firmly recommended to learn their culture first. While a book can simply teach students all about the way of life of the inhabitants of a certain country, seeing the country and experiencing and enjoying the cultural display provides a first-hand expertise to the students. This expertise helps them in learning faster and much better.

An educational tour provides you an opportunity to socialize with other folks. Students are encouraged to talk to locals and natives and learn a lot from them. This helps students in gaining understanding. When students talk with neighborhood men and women, they gain the insights to their life as well as their culture. You must have heard the extremely well-known saying, ‘When in Rome, act and think as the Romans do’. This really is an important and useful talent that not all people can do.

Educational tours offer practical knowledge to the students and work as very essential portion of their academics. The extremely crucial aspect of an educational trip is that it delivers students an experience to find out on personal levels with a hands-on experience. You’ll find a number of organizations that support in undertaking such educational experiences for students. They help, guide and organize such educational trips. These companies organize the entire tour for the students. They offer a helping hand to the young generation in developing new skills and to increase their knowledge of international issues as well as other cultures. They help in uniting them as component of the global community. Such companies also supply some type of student travel discounts too, making it simple to afford the new experiences.

Numerous educational institutions employ such businesses to conduct the tours. For all the students who love to travel and have a zest to learn new things, the educational tours are ideal for them. It’s going to not merely present them using a large amount of knowledge and in-depth understanding but will also function as enjoyable experience.
