I love Eilat, amazing nature, clean air, beautiful sea😍 the only problem is price - 7 days in Europe will cost you less than 4 days in Eilat. (Flights&hotel)

I was born in Eilat, so I actually enjoyed this video. Yes, the airplanes land & take off literally between the hotels! Lol. However, they did build a new airport, about 10 or 15 miles north of Eilat and according to what I hear, they will destroy the existing airport in the middle of the city! LMFAO

Shame on you for visiting a country which is shamelessly stealing land from Palestisns and treating them like prisoners. I stand for human rights and will never visit Isreal. Boycott Isreal. This is not about hate but standing up for humanity.
Naz Hakim (1 month ago)
+Gabriel Traveler , I have boycotted them all. I rather not go anywhere than going somewhere and supporting their economies through my money. Israel is apartheid state, untill Palestisns are not given basic rights, which everyone deserves and their land back, I will continue to support the boycott movement. Gaza is a open prison, where conditions are so bad I wouldn't wish my worst enemy to live there. There are many good people in Israel who are speaking up against this.

You could say the same thing about lots of countries that have imperfect political records.

I'm from the States. I liked it. I had a burger that was purposefully made inside-out, where you'd hold the meat patties and the bread and condiments (no cheese--not kosher, I hear) are on the inside. That was over 10 years ago. Does anyone know what that place is/was called? You can do water recreation activities, there. I think I snorkled with dolphins via a guide and my friend scuba-dived. Eilat is close to Jordan (Aqaba, I think is the city).

Eilat reminds me of how Vegas looks at daytime. But Vegas is much more interesting.... Eilat, for Israelis, used to be "big" in the 90's and earlier, this is not the case today since israelis want the pricer sea side hotels- however at the price of going to Eilat+ hotel, it's better to take a vacation in Europe.

Eilat is the most southern city in israel. But this city is very very expensive for the israelis pepole and really the city is empty and boring during the day. just a beches with "holigans" israelis and teenagers drunks. really ? the israelis prefer the countries over the sea because the prices and the stmosphere there! You have really good videos and i like them

As someone who was born and raised in eilat January is the worst time for a visit, yes summer time can be really hot but April May /September October is an amazing time to visit! You went across the north beach line which is very commercial and luxury, South Beach line is way more beautiful and holds a lots of reefs and stunning sites and views. In one thing you were right, eilat is so damn expensive.

Would you have traveled to Nazi Germany during the days of Hitler and while standing there ‘visiting’ them say peace is what we want...while paying entrance to govt toursity areas( ie supporting the economy instead of boycotting and speaking out against the inhumane mistreatment of people from a racist/cruel government? I have been following you for years but I can’t support this false image and the painting of Aparthied to be acceptable and tolerable ,bc it’s not. Good luck with all your travels & wish you all the best. We all want peace but it can’t be one-sided...and paying for the growth of those who need to be in the ICC is not peace.

Motti Bembaron (5 months ago)
I can't believe that a beer in Eilat is $10 and $13 for a falafel pita. That's crazy. Tel Aviv is cheaper. Eilat is a beautiful and an amazing vibrant place starting in April (Passover Holiday) all the way to Mid October and if searched properly one can get great hotel deals. As for food, unless you want to sit smack in the middle of the beach front, you can find much better deals for beer and food. Next time try Aroma chain (amazing breakfast). Cheers.

Eilat known for the nice diving reef and also dolphins :) but its get crazy hot in july and august, around 40+ clz .. but no humidity at all so its bareble, and the water stay cool all year becuse its part of the ocean. If you have 3-4 days in israel so pass eilat.. but if you have more i think its cool place to relax, just be sure to come in the right season.

as a guys who lives here 30 years... the city has changed in the bad way... in the late 90's and early 00's eilat was at the peak of the peak... tiesto for example used to play here 2 3 times a year... we had like 2 3 trance/edm festivals a year.... 10k ppl.. for a city who has only around 60k... so imagine.. now each party is closed and goiin inside hotels.. onces in a year we have a big party... not as we used to had.... no BIG names coming (the scorpions has private show for gambling comany) and thats it... oh and its expensive as fuck.. weed cost u around 20$/gram beer can go from 3$ to 10$... its a nice video and i can recognize a few over there.. the bridge that u showed ppl use to jump over in the summer.. now the police have an officer there sitting :)
einat1622 (3 months ago)
Yes, enjoying a pint is expensive almost everywhere in Israel :-( Want a beer? get a bottle or a can at a convenience store\supermarket (the $3 option).

this video is a little superficial, you just walked across the town to the sea. next time show the night life, the bars, the clubs, dive in the sea and show us why it is unique and not just a normal sea.

dont think this guys gonna go to the bars ETC
Gabriel Traveler (8 months ago)
I agree actually. Basically I was too busy in Eilat editing my other videos and was short on time. I wanted to at least give a taste of it, so on my last day there I headed out late in the afternoon and just walked around before it got dark. The next day I had a bus to catch. So this was all I had time for, a quick walking tour of what it looks like.

10 dollar for s beer? Very expensive
einat1622 (3 months ago)
Beer in pubs are expensive at any Israeli metropolitan ($10- $15 for 500 ml from the tap) . Same prices in some Las Vegas bars... I end up buying a few cans of beer at a convenience store and bringing them into my room (using ice from the free ice machine). If you want to save - a bottle or a can cost about $3 in supermarkets.

Hey Gabe, you can swim in the Red Sea during January...as the water surface temp never really drops below 20C even during the winter. In fact, I have often been there at that time of year and done just that. Plus, Eilat can heat up very quickly...even in the winter months you can experience quick bursts of hot days up around 28C, even in the low 30C range sometimes. The ocean surface temp in Tel Aviv or Haifa is around 17-18C in January...and therefore a tad chilly. I do enjoy your vids a lot, keep em coming...the image quality is a lot better as of late. Just one comment here... You often say things like....it’s cool, cold, chilly, etc....like in your very recent Athens and Cyprus videos...how about always mentioning the actual daily high and night time low temps....to give the viewers a proper sense of just how cold, etc. As a lifelong travel & climate buff myself....I’m always interested in the actual temp readings, etc 😎
