Eilat – from the point of view of a woman

Winter is already at hand, but I still want to lie on the beach under the gentle southern sun. Where then to go? If for you, King Solomon and Queen of Sheba are authorities, then here is a piece of advice for you: go to Eilat.

How to swim in several seas at once

Israel for tourism is a unique country. Firstly, the Red Sea resort of Eilat is good for relaxing all year round; secondly, it is possible to combine the pleasant (that is, relaxation) with the useful, namely with excursions to the holy places of Israel.

Importantly, it takes only four hours to fly to the country. Russian tourists are especially pleased with the presence of Russian-speaking staff in many hotels.

Most often, tourists who choose Israel as their vacation destination are offered holidays in Eilat. The company Ophir Tours has developed for its customers an unconventional version of a trip around the country called Four Seas. Continue reading
