TRAIN IS APPROACHING 🚇
This week we’ll finally experience Tel Aviv metro in full action… hopefully
Yes, we know that it’s not really a “metro”, but a light rail network – but the metro just sounds so much more cosmopolitan and befitting of one of the world’s most expensive cities! After 12 years in the making, the metro is finally due to open on Friday – for a few hours before it closes for Shabbat. To celebrate we’ve created a Tel Aviv Metro Guide with everything you need to know about each Tel Aviv station. Get a sneak peak of the metro in our viral Instagram / TikTok video (over 1 million views!).

In the past week, we’ve reviewed a cafe that’s perfect for working, a new burger spot on Levinsky that’s sure to become a favorite after a boozy night out, and for better or worse KFC’s Tel Aviv opening.
