Lonely Planet Ranks Tel Aviv Among Top 10 Party Cities

Millions of the tourists who visit Israel each year are already know that Tel Aviv is one of the world's most exciting and vibrant cities for nightlife, music, clubbing and going to the beach.

Now popular travel guide Lonely Planet has made it official, ranking Tel Aviv amongst the world's top 10 most action-packed and vibrant cities along with Berlin, Las Vegas, Ibiza, Buenos Aires, Havana, Lisbon, Montreal, Istanbul and Budapest.

Tel Aviv won the title in two nightlife categories: "Ultimate Party Cities" and "Top Ten Hedonistic City Breaks," Yedioth Ahronoth reported.

“If Jerusalem is Israel’s historic, classical capital, then Tel Aviv is its pleasure-seeking younger brother and the country’s coolest city by miles," Lonely Planet website said.

According to the popular travel guide, Israel is the "Miami of the Middle East. You won’t see blinged-up superstars like Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs, but everyone else looks the part on the wonderful beaches. Tel Aviv’s locals are a cultured lot, oozing style and hungry for the finest art, fashion, cuisine and clubbing. The city celebrated its 100th birthday in 2009 with a riot of creative arts. Don’t worry if you missed the party – there’ll be another one along in no time.”

Lonely Planet goes on to describe the Tel Aviv late night scene: “Like elsewhere in the greater Mediterranean, Israel’s capital of fun gets going late. The endless bars, pubs and cocktail venues start to fill up by midnight, from which point the nightclubs get revved up with dancing till dawn."

"Nowadays an international crowd joins native Israelis for a mixed bag of funk, pop, house and techno (in addition to live shows small and large) at the city’s dozens of entertainment hotspots. Tel Aviv has a relaxed, hedonistic air, and prides itself on being gay-friendly and outgoing," Lonely Planet added.
