What do people like (and dislike) about Tel Aviv?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats and global nomads what they like and dislike about living in Tel Aviv, they replied...

"Expats and digital nomads generally like living in Tel Aviv for its vibrant and diverse culture, which offers a mix of modern and traditional experiences. They appreciate the city's thriving tech scene and numerous co-working spaces, which provide ample opportunities for networking and collaboration. The sunny weather, beautiful beaches, and outdoor activities are also a big draw for those who enjoy an active lifestyle. Additionally, the city's culinary scene is highly regarded, with a wide variety of restaurants, cafes, and street food options catering to different tastes. On the other hand, expats and digital nomads often dislike the high cost of living in Tel Aviv, as housing, transportation, and dining out can be quite expensive. The language barrier can also be a challenge, as Hebrew is the primary language spoken in Israel, although many locals do speak English. Some may find the political situation and occasional security concerns to be a source of unease. Lastly, the bureaucracy and paperwork involved in obtaining visas, work permits, and other necessary documentation can be frustrating and time-consuming for expats and digital nomads," commented one expat who made the move to Tel Aviv, Israel.

"I came to Israel because I loved it here. My two kids live here (my daughter got married this week!) But life here is so so unnecessarily hard. I'm shocked at the filth and garbage. The constant noise (and I'm a city girl, from NY & Boston). People don't recycle. Dog poop all over. Cost of living is sky high (cheaper outside the center, but the center is where everyone is!) Our wi-fi sucks half the time though that's getting better. The banking laws are medieval. So there ya go. We are out of here soon," remarked another expat in Tel Aviv, Israel.
