Tel Aviv, Israel

Tel Aviv, young and modern metropolis with a mixed population, emerged only in 1909. Clubs, bars, a thriving community of artists, gay life and beaches attract artists, musicians and young professionals in secular Tel Aviv. Architecture in the Bauhaus style gave the city the status of a UNESCO and the nickname "White City." You can walk, drive a car or ride in a taxi between the exhibition pavilions of Haaretz Museum, Museum of Independence, bustling Carmel Market and Old Jaffa Boulevard.
