Tel Aviv beachfront
Both hotels that we stayed in, Hotel Nes Ziona and Hotel Eilat, were close to the beach. These were inexpensive hotels that mostly backpackers stay in. I had made reservation at Hotel Nes Ziona from Pakistan. Most probably it was the only call that day (or month) that was made from Karachi to Tel Aviv. Of course I was using Vonage so neither Karachi nor Tel Aviv knew.
