Customer Travel Tip: Stay at Yafo. On the same street Jack and the beanstalk is a great little bar and further up from there on the opposite side of the street is an amazing bakery/cafe. And eat at Falafel Hazkenim for the best falafel you will ever have.

Liked: Nice bars, restaurants and cafes

Disliked: Apart from the Bahai garden (and you can't even go in the shrine) there isn't really anything to do. And the city seemed deserted after 5pm. I wouldn't recommend going.

Trip Type:
Family Holiday

Customer Travel Tip: It depends on what you are looking for. For me it was simply to walk upwards Stella Maris road to the top to enjoy the panorama of Haifa just below and to see the open sea to the west, to the north until Rosh Hanikra at the Lebanese border. Often priceless experiences are the best.

Liked: Nice atmosphere.

Disliked: No. Simply the visit in Haifa was too short.

Customer Travel Tip: You can go to Haifa by bus or train from Tel Aviv, but to travel around the area it is better to rent a car. Just don't do it with Suncar, we had a terrible expirience with them.

Liked: It's a good city to serve as a base to know the places around the north of Israel. You can rent a car and travel to Nazareth, Akko, Cesarea, the Sea of Galilee and much more.

Disliked: Nothing

Customer Travel Tip: The Bahai gardens are closed, don't bother going. The Bahai religion was an invention of British Intelligence to split up Islam, in the same way Mormonism tried to split up Christiandom in the USA.

Liked: The trees.

Disliked: Nothing really to see.

Customer Travel Tip: If travelling from Jerusalem to Haifa, it's best to get a bus to the Northern bus station, as it's the bus station that will likely be of most use to get to know when travelling to other places around Haifa.

Liked: Apart from the Bahai gardens there's not a lot to see in Haifa, however, it does make a reasonable base for seeing the North of Israel. I used it as a base for visiting Bet She'an and Akko.

Disliked: There's not a lot to see
