Packing list for Israel for Female travelers

My trip to Israel was simply amazing. However, I definitely felt like I could’ve been better prepared to experience Israel with the right kind of essentials. So, I came up with this simple packing list for Israel to help those visiting for the first time.
First, you need to zero in on the length of your trip so you can prepare yourself accordingly. I was in Israel for 10 days and could pretty much pack everything in a medium-sized trolley bag.
Next you need to know in which month you will be traveling and whats the temperate like then. Being prepared for one season is a great tip for light packing instead of packing for all sort of weather conditions. So be sure to check the forecast before starting your packing spree.

Packing Tips for Women Traveling to Israel

So whilst you can easily walk around Tel Aviv in a pair or shorts and t-shirt, you need to dress modestly, especially around religious areas.

If you plan to bike around the city, a pair of cycling shorts will come in handy.

It is advisable to carry a thin wrap-around skirt and a shawl to cover knees and shoulders if you happen to enter or be around a religious site.

For a visit to the Dead sea, you can very much wear a bikini and it’s perfectly normal to do so.

It might rain sometimes so carry a folding rain jacket just in case.
Pack a decent pair of clothing if you happen to be invited to Shabbat.

Few towns in Israel have cobbled stone pathways making them slippery during rains so a sturdy pair of boots is a must.

Covering your head is not a must but if you would like to style your clothes with scarves they would totally be fashionable and trendy in Israel.
