Israel back to normal with thriving tourism


Tourists roamed happily around Tel Aviv and Jerusalem even as the rockets fell during the recent eight-day conflict with Gaza. While the Gaza operations scared some tourists away, Israel is now back to a thriving trade as normality takes hold once again in the country.

Israel has an active tourism industry, which it can balance even if there is unrest in the country.

New attractions and archeological sites never stopped letting in visitors, Israel’s Tourism Commissioner for North and South America, Haim Gutin said.

Israel, a country of different languages, cultures and foods, has always people and has 48% repeated visitors.
