Israel's leading icon of modernity is home to shopping, dining, hotels, and an observatory.
The city's highrise district.
Tel Aviv is a mix of traditional and contemporary, but the Azrieli shopping complex gives Tel Aviv its most modern touch. It's formed by three towering skyscrapers (dubbed "the roof of Tel Aviv") which contain hotels, restaurants, and a rooftop observatory (highly recommended), as well as offices of some of the top national and international firms in the country. The three lowest floors are occupied by a shopping center with a wide variety of fashion and food retailers including some of the country's most exclusive brands, as well as more than 30 eateries (making it a great refueling and/or entertainment stop during or after a day of shopping).
