Tel Aviv to Get Its Own Hot Air Balloon


Tel Aviv is about to join 50 other cities, including London, Paris and Hong Kong, by having its own hot air balloon.

The balloon will offer tourists and locals a bird’s eye perspective of the city for about $18 for adults and $12 for children. The 12-minute ride will include a guided tour of the city by the balloon’s pilot.

The city is also planning to open a visitor’s centre showcasing the history of hot air balloons in Israel and around the world.
