Tel Aviv - Israel

Tel Aviv

Population : Metro Area (2006) 3,150,800

Tel Aviv-Yafo (Hebrew: תֵּל־אָבִיב-יָפוֹ‎; Arabic: تَلْ أَبِيبْ يَافَا), usually referred to as Tel Aviv, is the second most populous city in Israel, with a population of 384,600. Tel Aviv is located on Israel's Mediterranean coastline over an area covering 51.8 km². It is the main city of the largest and most populous metropolitan area in Israel, Gush Dan (Dan Bloc), whose population numbers 3.15 million as of 2007. Tel Aviv is recognized as a strong candidate global city, and has been named the most expensive Middle Eastern city to live in.

The City of Tel Aviv was originally founded in 1909 by Jewish immigrants as an alternative to expensive housing in the neighbouring historic port city of Jaffa (Hebrew: יפו‎, Yafo; Arabic: يافا, Yafa). Tel Aviv's extensive growth eventually overtook its Arab-majority neighbour, and the two towns were united into the municipality of Tel Aviv-Yafo in 1950, two years after the establishment of the State of Israel. Tel Aviv is today considered the center of Israel's globally oriented economy, and is the anchor of the area popularly known as "Silicon Wadi". It is also considered Israel's cultural capital due to its vibrant, modern, cosmopolitan character. The city's Bauhaus architectured White City was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003.

dissapointing, I thought Israel cities would look better than that. Is that the entire skyline in the first picture? Maybe I'm just looking at bad pictures?

6.5/10 for now but it could change since I haven't voted

Great skyline, you just gotta look at it from a different angle!

The architecture is quite cool and fascinating...Honk Kongish, almost.

I like it, and it's really BOOMING, so get rteady for a drastic change pretty soon...

I give it a 7.4/10... (I shall give it a "7" on the poll)

It's getting better and better for sure but it's a bit too spread out and not dense enough yet for me (skyline-wise that is).

I'll give it a respectable 6/10.
