Flora Tsapovsky is a style, food, travel and culture writer, splitting her time between San Francisco and Tel Aviv. She’s got a pulse on what’s cool across the globe, and we’re thrilled to snag her Tel Aviv tips today:

Historical and ultra-modern at once, Tel Aviv is the design lover’s dream. Nestled on the beach but packing enough urban punch to cater to the city traveller, it’s a place full of contrasts, where concrete and colorful tiles mix with reserved, monochrome clothing and the most vibrant food you’ll ever see. And the best part? All the cute shops, boutique hotels and smart eateries you can handle are biking, or even walking distance, from one another.
