Time for vacation

Five months passed since I came back home from My trip to south America.
One month before I go to the University.
I think Its the perfect time for Vacation.

So where should I go ?
I assume that In the US when someone wants to take a vacation he may take a flight (Or a long Road Trip) to Hawaii, Maimi, Mexico or anywhere.

Israelis, however, don't need to take a flight, Israel is really small, It's so small that it will take you less then six hours by car to go from the Northern point to the Southern point, And less then an hour from the west to the east.

That blue spot in the middle of the US map above is the actual size of Israel comparing to the US.

Anyway, the most famous place in Israel for Vacation is the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth ( About 421 Meters below sea level),there you can find a beautiful sea, full of Salt, so when you go into the water you will simply float :)

Around the area of the Dead Sea, there are many Hotels and other attractions. For tourists from all over the world its the perfect place to come and relax.
The soil around the Dead Sea has Health advantages, and many people comes for treatments , you can find a lot of information about it on web.

Eilat is the most southern city in Israel, Its always sunny there, the beach is beautiful and you can do any activity that you can dream of.
The Shoppers Will LOVE this place because there is no TAX on shopping in Eilat :)

If you are in the mood for green and breathtaking landscape go up north, Beautiful places, much cooler climate, and of course the "Sea of Galilee", which unfortunately getting smaller every year due to lake of rain and other sources of water to fill it, so Hurry up.

In addition you have many beautiful places for tourist all around the country, Jerusalem and its holy places, and the city of Tel Aviv which called the "city that never stops", with hundreds of Bars, Restaurants, Parties and many more fun places to go.

The best thing is that you can visit all those places together, its about 3 hours trip by car from one location to another, so you can "mix" it all together.

Now you just need to chose where to start from :)
