Tel Aviv continues to draw tourism accolades, with Forbes magazine ranking it among the top 20 most beautiful destinations in the world.
The ranking is based on the input of Beautiful Destinations, the largest travel and lifestyle community active on the major social media websites. The company analyzed the places tagged most frequently over the last six months on social media photo-sharing site Instagram, ultimately coming up with a top 20 destination list.
Photographer Sivan Askayo wrote of Tel Aviv: “Tel Aviv is a stylish, completely contemporary Mediterranean metropolis. But the real seductive power of Tel Aviv is not necessarily in its cafes and restaurants, but in its people, who love the good life.”
Tel Aviv-Jaffa is joined on the list by New York, Venice, Barcelona and Santorini.
The Forbes ranking is one of several enjoyed by Tel Aviv, among them National Geographic’s Top 10 Beach Cities, and The Wall Street Journal’s list of the most innovative cities.
