There is also a famous little shop called “Lametayel” with travel items. On certain days there are free lectures about exotic world destinations like Nepal, India, South America etc. It is in Hebrew.

What to Buy in Tel-Aviv ?

Israelis are going to shop in Barcelona and Bangkok, so I guess Israel is not that attractive regarding the prices and variety of items. Still, you may find interesting :


  • Casual wear – There are some fashion Israeli brands like CastroFox and Golf. You will find them in every mall.
