hkskyline's 2022 in TEL AVIV

Tel Aviv is a fairly new city, founded in 1909 as a suburb for the ancient port of Jaffa. I came here because it was the only redemption flight I could get from Hong Kong to Europe, and it was a fairly cheap one luckily. With only 36 hours in town, I spent my first morning exploring Florentin's graffiti and market, which yielded a lot of interesting finds.

















































Jewish immigrants from the Balkans established Levinsky Market in the 1920s and since then, chefs have come to find fresh herbs, spices, and more. As more immigrants moved to Tel Aviv following its independence, products from many places could be found here. Today, we can find nuts, stuffed vegetables, olives, and dried fruit among the many items for sale.

TEL AVIV is rare on this forum, even rarer than San Francisco.

Tel Aviv's skyscrapers are clustered around a large highway and rail line east of the historic centre. While easily accessible by train, it is a bit far from the typical tourist attractions.







Located in front of the skyscrapers, Sarona was founded by Templar Christians from Germany about 150 years ago. Its restoration dates from 2006 when the city turned the site into a serene urban park, skyscrapers, and even a lively indoor market.











A short walk downhill along Eliezer Kaplan Street are more modern buildings. The Azrieli Center comprises 3 skyscrapers, appropriately named the Square (154m), Triangular (169m), and Round (187m). They sit on top of a shopping mall which is connected to the train station by pedestrian bridge.











The bridge to Hashalom station offers a good view of the skyline.

Fascinating, thanks for sharing. The contrast between old and modern is really intriguing.

Carmel Market is a short walk from the waterfront and is the premier market to visit from the tourist literature. The main pedestrian-only market offers all sorts of goods, although I was interested in only the food selection. It seemed relatively small compared to other Middle Eastern souks I've visited although it was vibrant with lots of people doing their grocery shopping as well as sightseeing.

It seems part of the military compound across the street from the Azrieli Mall.

Tel Aviv's story begins at the old port of Jaffa, which has a long history including being ruled by a number of ancient peoples from the Egyptians to the Greeks. It became a major trading port in the 19th century, serving as an export centre for oranges and a gateway for pilgrims heading to Jerusalem.





The suspended orange tree showcases a famous Jaffa export. Orchards are believed to have started here in the 18th century and a special type of orange became a major export by the mid-19th century.



























Today's port is more a tourist destination although a number of boats are still parked here.
