Sweet Tip- Hair Styling

The owner Chen, is a Sweet guy who is patient, helpful and speaks your language! Address: 135 Ben Yehuda Street. Tel: +9723-54-66668
Sweet Tip- Mini Buses
A fun, convenient and very inexpensive way to travel in the City center is by mini bus. There are two routes, No:5 which travels along Dizengoff Street from the north and terminates at the Central station and No:4
travels on Ben Yehuda and Alleby Streets until the central station. Both go the the junction connecting Rothschild Boulevard. The Sweet thing about mini buses is that you can ask the driver to drop you off wherever you like along the routes and, flag them down in the same fashion, (no waiting at bus stops). That way, you get to jump off any time you see something worth walking for!
Sweet Tip – Best Taxi Service
If you want to use the least expensive taxi service for your return journey to the airport then I suggest you use Hadar Taxi ,who are the official taxi service from Ben Gurion Airport. They charge approximately 20% less than local taxis companies. (Charge Apprx NIS115) Tel: +9723-9711103
Sweet Tip- Dry Cleaning
If you should need to dry clean a garment with speed and efficiency at a place you can trust to do the job well, then I would suggest using Vit-Sec. The owner and staff are pleasant and helpful but more importantly the service is professional (which of course comes at a price) Address : 114 Dizengoff Street. Tel:+9723-5275550
Sweet Tip – Public Restrooms
I know this subject is a little delicate but it is vital. In Tel Aviv there are restrooms in most public places, the beach, parks, shopping centers. However if you are not in a “position” to wait, do find the nearest cafe and ask nicely to use theirs. I have never been refused!
Sweet Tip- City Bicycles
If you like to tour at a more leisurely pace and have good stamina then perhaps a bicycle ride is for you.
Don’t forget to wear a helmet!
