Lonely Planet Ranks Tel Aviv 3rd Hottest City

Travel guide company Lonely Planet named Tel Aviv third in a list of the world’s best cities, praising the coastal metropolis for its art and music scenes as well as its relaxed, liberal culture.

The panel, which included Lonely Planet founder Tony Wheeler, described Tel Aviv as being unified by the religion of hedonism, yet tolerant, cultured and a truly diverse 21st-century hub.

“Tel Aviv is the total flipside of Jerusalem, a modern Sin City on the sea rather than an ancient Holy City on a hill,” Lonely Planet said in its “Best in Travel” guide which it has put out every year for six years now, adding that there are more bars than synagogues.

On a cultural note, the world renowned tourist guide credits Tel Aviv’s university and museums with making it “the greenhouse for Israel’s growing art, film and music scenes.”

The company’s entry on Tel Aviv also describes its architecture, including the fact that this “White City,” so named for its many Bauhaus structures, has been recognized by UNESCO as a world heritage site.
