If you have enough time, visit the nearby church of St Peter and the clock tower too. Other highlights include the Suzanne Delale Centre and the neighbourhood of Neve Tzedek (oasis of justice), which was one of Tel Aviv's first neighbourhoods. It was founded in 1887 by Aharon Chelouch, a businessman in the construction industry, so that he could leave the working class district of Jaffa.
There is also the Bauhaus-neighbourhood east of Tel-Aviv, which has been classed a Unesco World Heritage Site. An architectural movement from the 30's which originated in Germany, the Bauhaus buildings advocate the use of practical space and privilege interior comfort over aestheticism. They are usually square, white buildings which borde wide avenues, notably Avenue Rothschild.
If possible, do not miss a visit to the Yemeni Tel Aviv neighbourhood and the Akarmel souk. The Yemeni Jews settled in Tel Aviv long ago, but their neighborhood has remained completely unchanged. An ?oriental' atmosphere is guaranteed here, not only in the excellent restaurants serving Yemeni specialties, but in the souks where you can bargain as if you were in North Africa.
Spend Shabbat day (Saturday) or evening walking around Tel-Aviv's old port. The docks have been modernised and you will find many restaurants, bars, nightclubs and shops. A family atmosphere reigns during the day on Saturday and a more ?youth' atmosphere takes over in the early evening.
On Friday morning, take a wander around the Jaffa Flee market where many artists come to sell and exhibit their work; it's a great outdoor bric-a-brac sale strewn over the small streets of the Old City and you are sure to make some unusual discoveries!
On Fridays, do not hesitate to walk along Nachalat Binyamin street, where there is a lively craft market which lasts all day. Artists from the city invade the pedestrian street where bright colours, unusual objects, practical objects and useless ones all compete to catch your eye! It is here that you will find everything typically ?Tel Avivian' gathered all together in one place on one day and you are likely to find many original souvenirs to take back with you.
For those of you who wish to find stores selling trendy clothes and shoes, go to Sheinkin street where all the young people in the city go. In fact, Tel-Aviv is an ideal city for shopping; you can find all the shops you could ever dream of in the Dizengof area (formerly known as the Champs- Élysées of Tel-Aviv) and there is a large shopping mall which offers a variety of different shops. For more luxurious shopping though, you can visit Kikar Hamedina Square, which can be compared to 5th Avenue in New York.
As for refreshments, if you want to have a drink on a terrace or a hot drink in a cafe, go to the Bazel district as the atmosphere of this district is like that of a small village.
As far as places to go out in the evening are concerned you will be spoilt for choice: Neve Tzedek offers a multitude of cool bars and Lillenblum street is dotted with restaurants, bars, and clubs, where each one is more unusual than the other (Nanouchka, Minch Minch) The docks are also buzzing with young people in the evenings, especially on Fridays and Saturdays.
