Ramat Gan National Park

Reviewed By Dima C - Tel Aviv, Israel

Large and well-maintained park. Easily accessible, including an artificial lake with a lot of ducks and other lake birds; beatiful waterfall, picnic areas, kids playground and gym area. There is also a restaurant - "Cacao" (not the best, with average cost\quality ratio, but acceptable) and kiosks.
Large free parking is offered. Situated close to Safari and Maccabiah Village.

Nice at night find out when is possible and do the night tour, go there only when the whether is good and not too hot as the animals will not be visible. Great for young kids , not far from tlv center, need a car to enjoy.

Big shopping center, all Israel chains available, not luxury, ordinary people oriented. Big supermarket including. The one-store building has unclear plan without signs, every time it is problem return to your car from the same gate.

I took the free tour with pick up from the hotel. The tour guide was Elizabeth who was great, we walked around Old Jaffa for over an hour with her telling us the history of Jaffa, Tel Aviv and Israel. Then the bus took us through the New Jaffa and Old Tel Aviv areas and past a few other sites before arriving at the Diamond Exchange. They soon twigged that I was not interested in buying a diamond so was rushed through the museum before being shuffled into the diamond store next door. Would have liked to have spent a bit more time looking around, but of course they were paying and I wasn't buying. They gave you a free taxi to anywhere in Tel Aviv, which I guess was supposed to take you to back to the hotel, but no-one really minded where you took it. So if you take the free tour, look interested in possibly buying a diamond and you will probably get a better tour of the museum.

The Israel Diamond Exchange includes a complex of dealers, jewelry makers and a diamond museum. A visit must be arranged in advance and is well worth it.

Maria and Michael Museum of Russian Art

Reviewed By N K - Rishon Lezion, Israel

The place is very nice with two museums in the same building: Museum of Russian Art and Museum of Far Eastern Art. Both are small but quite interesting and it's a great experience visiting them together. One museum hosts quite a few Russian 20th century paintings while the other exhibits various interesting artifacts mainly from 17th to 19th century Japan and China. Also check out their special Exhibitions before visiting. Admission fee is only 20 NIS and includes in it a weekly pass to other Ramat Gan museums.

Zapari Bird Park

Reviewed By Hawkeye-490 - Jerusalem, Israel

I'd visited this place 21 years ago with my youngest child. The Zapari Bird Zoo was great, replete with a wide variety of parrots and other exotic birds. The hatching and hand feeding area was fascinating both for me and my 6 year old boy. The place was well-maintained and we spend two hours there, including enjoring a professional bird show with talking and performing birds.
This visit: The place is sadly not maintained, many fewer birds, peeling paint and crumbling installations...
Yesterday, I brought two grandchildren with me to see the bird zoo. The admittance fee was high (same price for adults as for children) - $16 per child/adult. The place is entirely run down. No apparent maintenance since I last visited in 1996. Most of the birds are gone. They have one or two sad and diseased looking birds in huge cages, that once housed small flocks of the same species. Many cages lacking ID for name of bird. None have any identifying information on the species. It is not a learning experience.
The birds are sad and apathetic. We sat through a "bird show" with a non-talking African grey and a couple of large macaws that knew two tricks that were exploited over and over again with tiny modifications in apparatus. The show was appropriate for non-discerning 2-3 year olds. Thirty minutes was too long: "Hey, we already saw that parrot do the same thing twice, already!" The MC exploited his microphone to the fullest, screaming above the screams of the macaws. He broke all laws concerning children and large parrots and had a small girl feed a macaw one the spot. No surprise, the macaw bit her finger, since she jabbed the food in his face. The MC quickly hustled her off the stage. Don't know what damage was done to her hand or if the parents will sue the bird park. If you like seeing cockatiels and a couple of Amazon parrots in a cage, this is the place for you.
The one redeeming factor was the children's play area, a new addition since my last visit. The grandkids ran for it, as everything else was boring.
GIVE this place A MISS. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN CLOSED TEN YEARS AGO.

It's a small and provincial museum, yet, we have been there on April 2015, and saw 3 fresh and interesting contemporary art Exhibitions. There's an additional building across the street for ceramic Exhibitions.

Reviewed By jr B

Great museum combining history, passion and luxury. We were amazed by the quality of the diamonds, you cannot imagine that they are not the originals.
The toilets were clean.
Even if I only stay one day in Tel Aviv, this is a must!!!
Wonderful city seeing with a local and the guide of the museum is a diamond expert and she answered to all our questions
We bought 4 jewels from the Jerusalem temples 1 or 2, this is the most successful present I ever brought to my family.
The video in the small cinema was really illustrative, I was extremely happy when they reach the deal!!!

Elram Mall

Reviewed By alio-olio

Tiny mall with absolutely useless and irrelevant stores.
Its more like a mole, not a mall...
One floor is dedicated to the offices of one of Israel's health service. Theres a McDonalds, a supermarket, ice-cream parlor, kids clothes store, and a few other stores and a cafe and you're done.
By international standards this a department store :-)
