This could be your next unforgettable destination
Israel is one of the most LGBTQ+ friendly countries in the Middle East, with Tel Aviv hosting an annual Pride parade that’s one of the biggest in the world. Although there’s still work to be done in other parts of Israel, Tel Aviv has an incredibly-visible LGBTQ+ community and there are plenty of gay-friendly hotels to choose from.
If you’re looking for an LGBTQ+ family holiday with the kids, you could build sandcastles and cool off on the golden sands of Frishman Beach, take a tour to float in the famous Dead Sea or visit one of the city’s souks to haggle with the vendors and buy souvenirs to take home. If you want to rent a car during your visit, then a trip to the Safari Ramat Gan is sure to earn you some brownie points with the kids. You can drive through this 250-acre safari park and spot rhinos and hippos en route.
If you love hiking, take a trip to the Red Canyon near Eilat, This incredible Mars-like landscape offers a beautiful but accessible circular trail through natural canyons. You’ll feel like you are on the set of Star Wars!
