Crazy House of HaYarkon Stands Out

Bauhaus architecture is evident in most buildings in Tel Aviv. But a number clearly veer away from this norm. One is The Crazy house in 181 HaYarkon.

Travel to Israel to See Crazy House

The edifice, a creation of architect Leon Gningebt, dares to differ from the rest. While adjacent buildings boast of the typical white-washed, box-like style, it flaunts a unique “crazy” design that’s said to be inspired by Catalan architectural genius Antoni Gaudi of Sagrada Familia Cathedral fame.

If only for its special Gaudiesque design, the building has become famous among tourists. People pass by HaYarkon just to have a good look of Crazy House. The additions to the front walls acting as designs and are supposed to make it the building crazy is not really weird.

For me, and I believe for many, the overall look is at worse odd. I actually find the façade really cool. What’s more cool is that it’s near other important streets like Ben Yehuda and Allenby, and just a stone’s throw away from the Tel Aviv Beach.

Just a reminder, it is not a museum, abandoned, nor open to the public. It still acts as a residential building, being its original purpose. Despite the name, it is surely home to normal, decent families.

Give My Love to Rehov Allenby

Compared to other major cities, Tel Aviv is so small that if you’re traveling to Israel, a complete tour of the city can be done in a day or two.

And in all probability, you will not miss passing by one of the most famous TA thoroughfares – Rehov Allenby.



Rehov Allenby

The street was one of my major hangouts (along with other cool spots like the beach, Jaffa Hills, and the Old port).

Here, I did stuff of all sorts – shopping, people ogling, Shawarma chomping, and Fuji film buying.

At times, I just loitered around and turned witness to any going-on, relevant or insignificant.

And being the eager soul that I am, Allenby never failed to satisfy my curiosity with all the new things that it seemingly offers always.


Shabbat

allenby 3 carmel market
Fridays was Allenby day. It was my afternoon’s final stop, after perhaps enjoying a noodle chow at Dizengoff’s food fest, or doing some quick afternoon marketing at Shuk HaCarmel.

I always decided to stay after Shabbat has long started, even as I noticed many others rushing to bus stops in order to hitch the day’s last autobus ride. It meant that I had no other option but to walk my way home. I promenaded the sidewalks, streets, and inner streets along with others who decided to walk as well or missed their ride altogether.

Any other day of the week, Allenby boasts of vibrancy, as manifested by thick traffic, as well as the sweet cacophony from activities of all sorts.


What Tel Aviv’s Allenby offers

Walk along Allenby and you’ll chance on just about everything – used book shops, clothing boutiques (Castro, Paolo Garage, and Mayer), shoe stores (Togo), camera and film sellers (Fotofilm), falafel and shwarma kiosks, money exchange booths, Superpharm, tshirt printing/transfer on shops, and many others.

Best of all – along the stretch are many falafel and shwarma kiosks, welcoming and always ready to fill me with delicious meat-and-vegetable salad filled pita treats for as low as 20 Nis.

What I also love about this street is that it connects two of my favorite places in the city – Tachana Merkazit and all its blatant boisterousness, and Ben Yehuda and the seeming tranquility and orderliness that it offers. Also, it intersects many other fascinating streets and boulevards such as Rothschild and Yehuda Halevi.


Unique street shows

A strategic spot at the rehov, that area fronting the entrance of Carmel market, is a venue for many regular artsy performances. I chanced upon few of these acts and was impressed with the shabbily dressed man and his glass acrobatic, ball-juggling act. Indeed, a feat extraordinaire.

Another was that of the half-man, half-tree creature that moved his branches and made googly, crazy eyes but only when coins were thrown onto his “coffer” on the ground.

You can also find souvenir shops (Judaica) along the street albeit many more similar establishments that allow for varied and less pricey options are found at the adjacent Ben Yehuda.


Opera Tower – must-visit when traveling to Israel

Opera Tower at the corner of Herbert Samuel and Allenby


The corner of the street and Herbert Samuel leads everyone to the beach and the famous mall and apartment, Opera Tower. Tower Records can be found at the building’s ground floor.

A major city landmark, the site of the tower used to be where the original Tel Aviv Opera House was located. After the Opera, there’s nowhere else to go next but at the beach, right? Beach restaurants such as SoFrishman are just nearby.





Major autobus thoroughfare

Autobuses of most numbers pass in and out of this street, whether almost the whole length or just partially. Autobus 25 takes you through Ibn Gvirol and farther to the Tel Aviv University, numbers 10 and 18 go to Bat Yam, number 10 passes through the Rehov to the New Central bus station (Tachana Merkazit).

Arrival of buses at designated stops is generally prompt, although I noticed that intervals vary among them. For instance, 25 seems to pass by every 30 minutes while autobus 10 arrives every 20 minutes or even earlier. Just make sure that you wait for your bus at the right stop.

Finally, describing this city street is not complete without mentioning go-go disco bars and clubs, which are frequented by both local and expats. Inviting as these Allenby clubs are, I didn’t have the chance to enjoy a drink or two. Sorry for me, since I do appreciate a chilled can of beer, and wouldn’t mind at all walking tad drunk and silly along the street of Allenby.

Super Andromeda: Even Shoshan, Tel Aviv-Yafo

Super Andromeda

Super Andromeda


Fly me to Tel Aviv! Let me travel to Israel again and I will certainly visit my fave Super Andromeda.

I felt elated when the former home/bathroom fixture shop located at the grounds of our apartment in Ibn Shoshan, Tel Aviv Yafo was transformed into a convenience store. This was way back 2007 or 2008, I think (couldn’t remember exactly).

But I was there when the signage in front of the shop was being installed; I read it as Super Andromeda (thanks to my basic knowledge of Hebrew).

Back then, we wondered why it was called as such. Maybe it’s because of the popular apartment nearby of the same name.

I thought that it’s more likely named after the Rock of Andromeda, actually composed of a two or three amid that portion of the Mediterranean Sea near the Old Port, and clearly in sight as you stand at the Jaffa Hill. You will never miss it as an Israeli flag stands on the largest.
super andromeda2
With Super A., seldom did I have to run to Alberto’s, a small store located at the corner of Yefet and Louis Pasteur, for immediate needs such as cola, Ein Gedi water, and cheese.

And visits to 24/7, which is several blocks away from our place, became infrequent as well. (24/7 is how we Filipinos call this bigger grocery/vegetable shop near the Yerushalyim Street. Just about everything is found in this shop, and way cheaper too).

What I loved about Andromeda is that the owner easily gave freebies to those who make big purchases. That’s why I loved it whenever he manned the cash register!

With Catholic Holy Land Tours, groups are given the chance to see and experience the presence of highly revered structures and sites; like the Holy Sepulchre Church, Wailing Wall, Mount of Olives, and Roman Market.

3. Galilee – premier Christian site

At the Sea of Galilee, he performed the miracle of taming the stubborn storm and raging seas, to the amazement of his disciples. It was in Tabgha that he fed thousands of people with overflowing fish and loaves of bread.

Important areas of Galilee that boast of Biblical and historical importance are Mount Tabor, Jezreel Valley, and Megiddo. A major topographical feature, Mount Beatitude, was where Christ gave the Sermon on the Mount.

dead seaNo tour of Israel is ever complete without visiting the famous Dea Sea. Found 400 meters or so below sea level, this natural wonder is in fact the lowest point in the world within any existing mass of land.

It got its name because its salt content ensures the impossibility of any life form in its waters. People love to swim – or rather float – in the sea, and have their pictures taken in the process. For first timers, however, they must heed the warning of not diving into the waters, lest they want the extremely salty water to get into their eyes and inflict pain or injure them.

6. Beauty of Bahai Gardens

Bahai GardensWhen we speak of Haifa, the first thing that comes to mind is the beautiful and awesome Bahai Shrine of the Bahai World Center, its gardens and Golden Dome. No one visits the city without making a stop at the gardens, which is maintained regularly by the center’s volunteers.

There is no doubt about it – Haifa is a top tourist destination of the country because of its many natural sites, as well as quaint ancient districts and neighborhoods. It also has its share of existing synagogues, mosques, and churches.

What’s important is you find lodging within the city and near the beach. Two affordable hotels are Mugraby Hostel and Old Jaffa Hostel, both of which are just a stone’s throw away from the beach.

One of the best tours of Israel is when you’re touring on your own as it is always prepared to thrill and surprise any tourist who’s in his lonesome.

For instance, try going to Mea Shearim, an enclave of ultra-orthodox Jewish community that’s a world of its own. More often than not, going there alone makes it possible for a quiet visit, which is a must when within this surreal place.

Reminder to shutterbugs, this is one place where people with cameras are frowned upon. Photos, if you wish to satisfy your urge, must be taken as surreptitiously as possible.
