The Malls Experience
Israelis have become addicted to malls; Tel Avivans are no exception. Some of the more popular are Dizengoff Center, the Gan Ha’Ir Shopping Center (near the Tel Aviv Municipality), the Ramat Aviv shopping center north of the city, “
More than just a shopping mall, the Azrieli Center Mall exists as part of a skyscraper – by Tel Aviv standards - office complex. For those that prefer their shopping western-style in spacious air-conditioned malls, Azrieli features excellent views of the city and the Mediterranean Coast from atop one of the towers, on the 45th floor, along with a wide range of chain outlets, fast-food restaurants and boutiques, shops, etc.
In Herzliya, just a very short ride from Tel Aviv, the Arena Mall, located on the Herzliya Marina, features a wide variety of shops and boutiques, as well as a range of good restaurants. It is also the site of two new luxury hotels.
