Though old, it had so many spectacular and amazing features. It was still very modernized and full of current equipments for loading and offloading goods from the ships. Furthermore, it had a big depot where many goods are stored. It also had a deep harbor where several cruise ships anchor in the port. The port on the other hand was packed to capacity with day-to-day activities. Besides, the port was also full of many first class resorts, bars and restaurants and many other religious places. It was indeed a nice experience to be in such a beautiful old port where we were able to see many things of ancient time.
We then advanced to the great Nahum Goldman Museum of the Jewish Diaspora. It was another wonderful place that we enjoyed most. The museum is strategically located within the core center of Tel Aviv University. We were privileged to see and learn various Jewish culture and history especially from the time when they were in the Diaspora. It was indeed an interactive session that made our moods jovial and happy. We then proceeded to the next section where we interacted with various anthologies of sculptures and artifacts. Within it was the Jewish centre for music where all songs were collected from various places, piled and stored. It also had a genealogy where interested parties registered themselves to plant trees in order to be conserved. It was indeed another unforgettable place that we vowed never to miss during the next visit.
The white city was also another enthralling place to be. As the name suggests, it left us with more curiosity to discover more about the small town within the city of Tel Aviv. The city was surely packed with many buildings with excellent Jewish architectural design of ancient times. It is also recognized as the best world heritage in Israel at large. The city was used by the Jewish community who fled and migrated due to harsh conditions and dictatorship in Germany during the reign of Hitler.

We even took several photographs and films to aid us in remembering the startling place in some years to come.

We then moved to the Ha Yarkon Park. It was also another awesome and alluring place to be. The park is located on the river banks. Alternatively, the river offered so many exciting activities that made our day. We were able to hire a boat for about five hours that made us to really enjoy the fun when riding. The boat ride was actually an awesome experience that made us to prolong our adventure at the park. Furthermore, we involved ourselves in several activities like climbing the wall which was the funniest and most enthusiastic of all. The park also had great fields where people could engage themselves by either playing basketball or football games depending with their choice of interest.
Tel Aviv museum was another mesmerizing place that made our day to be gratifying. The museum was packed to its capacity at our arrival time that made us to find hard time moving from one place to another. At around midday, the crowded people started moving away and paved the way for us. Actually, the museum was exclusive and unique in its own kind with remarkable features. It had so my anthologies of art works, some of them dated back to about 15th century ago to the present day collections. It was indeed a place that you couldn’t miss anything of your choice. Furthermore, the Jewish art work and cultural endeavors were also present. Alternatively, the museum had so many films which were displayed on the screens and exhibitions. The displays made our adventure impressive and wonderful. We were able to see things displayed at our comfort without maneuvering around to look for individual items. We ceased our day with so many things in our minds. Basically, as many say the longer you live the more you see. Indeed we saw many unexpected awe-inspiring and marvelous things.
