Cultural behaviour: Israel’s culture developed even before their independence in 1948, tracing back to ancient Israel. With a diverse immigration population from over 100 countries, and multiple subcultures, Israeli culture is varied — following different cultural trends which change across time.

Israel, officially the State of Israel or Hebrew Medinat Yisra’el, is located in the Middle East, at the end of the Mediterranean Sea. While small, Israel is known as the only Jewish nation in the world, with its rich history dating back to pre-biblical times.

Due to Israel’s Mediterranean terrain and climate, this country is home to a variety of animals, from boars to Caspian turtles. To bring back the woodlands, Israel has been replanting trees over the last 60 years. Multiple nature reserves have also been created to protect rare species.

Citizens of Israel are called Israelis, which do not carry any religious connotations with it. Israel has a diverse population, with around a third of the population coming from over 100 different countries. While many immigrants have come to Israel from countries of distress, individuals from other parts of the world are also free to immigrate to Israel.

In 2019, Israel was ranked 19 on the Human Development Index (HDI), with a value of 0.919, and has been ranked high in HDI value for the past 20 years.

The cost of living in Israel is fairly high, with one of the highest costs of living in the world. However, this varies on where expats decide to settle in the country and what lifestyle they aspire for. In 2019, Tel Aviv was ranked 15th in the Mercer’s Cost of Living Survey, beating Paris and London.

你在特拉维夫所需的APP

当你到了特拉维夫,或以色列境内其它地方,如果你想让旅途尽可能的轻松舒适。为此,你可能想下载一些APP,让旅途更加轻松,令所有的互动和交通出行都尽可能地高效舒适。以下为你列出了目前可以在手机上下载的最好的APP,让你在以色列的旅程变得有趣和无忧无虑。 导航 嗯,这款由以色列设计和制造的Waze,这绝对是你能找到的最好的导航应用,那么在室内导航呢? Navin – 室内及室外的导航 是的,这个APP可以为你在室内外导航。
如果你想在商场、博物馆、大型购物中心(如Sarona市场、Dizengoff中心等),甚至在大学或Ben-Gurion机场内进行导航,这款应用拥有你所需要的一切,将你的智能手机变成一个导航和地图设备。 交通出行 由于以色列的法律法规,不允许有Uber或Lyft这样的打车服务,我们有其他的打车APP来满足你的交通需求。 Get Taxi /Yango Get Taxi(很多以色列人都叫它Yango)是以色列最常用的打车软件。这款APP与许多不同的司机合作,并承诺(而且几乎100%地兑现承诺)提供以色列最快和最可靠的出租车服务。 Bubble Dan 另一款提供优质服务的APP,用于简单、方便和可靠的交通。比出租车更便宜,而且几乎同样方便。这个APP可以让你预订出租车服务(一种在以色列随处可见的公共交通工具,在任何时候都可提供),从你所在的地方到你想去的地方,系统会告诉你,司机在哪里接你(通常离你的GPS位置几米远),以及要上哪辆出租车。但这种服务只限于Gush-Dan地区(以色列中部,特拉维夫附近)。 Moovit 如果你想规划你的路线,从A点到B点,并找到最好的路线,最简单的路线(公交车之间的换乘最少),或最短的路线 – Moovit 这款APP就是你在以色列所需的。这款APP对应了以色列所有公共交通服务提供商的所有时间表、路线和公交线路,为你设计一个完全适合你需求的路线。 以色列铁路公司 除了以上提到的Moovit外,以色列铁路公司(以色列唯一的火车服务提供商)也有自己独家的APP,你可以在APP上安排乘车,预购车票,以及查看完整的列车时间表。IOS或Android系统可适用下载。 租借自行车和滑板车 如果你想使用特拉维夫周围的许多滑板车和自行车,你需要使用对应的APP进行租借。如果是租借自行车的话,可以选择MoBike、Tel-O-Bike或HopOn,如果是滑板车的话,可以选择Bird、Lime、Wind或LEO。所有这些都可以在任何的应用商店中找到。 翻译 Morfix 在不同的应用程序商店的众多翻译APP中,Morfix是最常被以色列人称为最准确和最容易使用的一款。当然,你也可以使用谷歌翻译,但是,为什么不尝试使用当地人首选的APP呢? IOS或Android系统可适用下载。 停车 如果你选择租车游玩,有几款有关的APP可以使用,它们提供同样的服务。选择一款你觉得最适用的。 Cellopark Cellopark是一款可以用来支付停车费的APP,不管是在马路上还是在停车场里。只需下载APP并通过注册程序后,你可以通过简单地点击一个按钮来支付你所有的停车需求。 (小贴士:如果你把车停在漆成蓝色和白色的路边,你是需要为此支付停车费的) Pango 另一款很棒的停车APP是Pango。同样,你可以在平台上支付路边的停车费,也可以支付以色列各地的各种停车场的停车费(大多数停车场都可以使用这两款APP)。Pango还有一个额外的好处,你可以在以色列周围的一些加油站支付汽油费用。 订购外卖 Wolt Wolt是一款外卖APP,主要在以色列中部、Gush-Dan地区提供服务,在耶路撒冷的部分餐馆也会提供服务。这款APP与相应地区的大多数餐馆合作,提供快速及优惠的外卖选择。 Mishloha 这款APP的名字源自一个著名的以色列笑话,它在全国范围内提供外卖配送服务,与许多不同的餐馆合作,在你的订单上提供详细的有关信息。 10-bis 10-bis从希伯来语翻译过来的字面意思是 “给我尝一口”。它最初是一个为企业及其员工提供餐饮券的系统,后来逐渐发展成为我们今天所知道的样子。他们有自己的外卖送餐司机,和以色列几乎所有的餐馆都有合作。
