Israel, perfectly located at the fulcrum of Europe, Asia and Africa, is a world-class destination for sophisticated travelers. Israel offers cultural attractions on a par with Europe and the U.S., luxury hotels, glamorous spas and a hot restaurant scene - all within an atmosphere that combines the very ancient with the ultra high-tech, and the exotic with the contemporary.
In addition to world-class Israeli hotels and hotel-chains, almost every international hotel chain is represented. Two hotels and restaurants are members of the prestigious Relais and Chateaux organization. Israel has a network of international-standard spa resorts in the Galilee, at the Dead Sea and at Eilat.
Israel - a country no bigger than Wales - has an international standard Opera Company (The New Israeli Opera) ,four full-time symphony orchestras (including the Israel Philharmonic, founded in 1936), as well as dozens of theater, dance, chamber music and contemporary music companies. Israel's club scene - particularly in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem - is part of the Ibiza-Amsterdam-London scene, drawing DJ's and club fans from the U.S. and Europe to all-night parties.
