Cruising to Ashdod

Lounging somewhere along the Southern District of Israel, you'll find Ashdod, the nation's largest port and arguably most important trading post. Accounting for around 60 per cent of the economy's imported goods, it is alive with a hustle and bustle that is hard to find elsewhere in the world.

Known for its incredible coasts, beautiful marina and picturesque beaches, Ashdod has become something of a tourist hotspot in recent years, although it certainly doesn't attract enormous crowds by any stretch of the imagination.

This is very nice for those who wish for this gem to go undiscovered - especially considering its truly incredible historical significance, which is really quite something. Visit the Giv'at Yonah, the Korin Maman Museum and the Ad H'alom Memorial Park to get a sense of all the past conflict that happened here.

Finally, if that wasn't enough, Ashdod frequently makes the list as one of Israel's most beautiful and best-designed cities. So there really is no excuse not to visit.
