There are countless opportunities for shopping in Israel. The Malkha Mall, the largest in the Middle East - as well as in the colorful markets, annual bazaars, street malls, and shops in the large cities - all of where one can enjoy shopping. Tel Aviv has entire streets with shops devoted to one particular item: spices, bridal gowns, clothing, fabrics, furniture, original gift items, fashion accessories, and galleries.
Ornaments made of wood, seashells, leather and straw, blown glass, and traditional clothing can be purchased in Jerusalem. Shopping in Eilat is significantly less expensive since they are exempt from VAT. One can buy Electrical Appliances, Clothing and tourist items and souvenirs.
