Equal content will also be promoted as part of the campaign. More information and details about the benefits can be found on the marketing website of the Ministry of Tourism, as well as on the websites of the participating municipalities. In addition, tourist articles will be published on the ministry’s website that recommend a 48-hour entertainment schedule in each of the cities participating in the campaign: Netanya, Nazareth, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa.

Each of the cities offers a different and unique experience.

The campaign is part of the Ministry of Tourism’s efforts to help the industry, which is currently experiencing a severe crisis following the halting of inbound tourism from abroad for more than a year. Under the guidance of the director general of the firm, Amir Halevi, emphasis was placed in the campaign mainly on the main tourist cities that were affected. In the first quarter of 2021, the Ministry of Tourism carried out a number of marketing moves and campaigns, including a national tour project to encourage tourism traffic while returning guides to work. The ministry also worked to create demand for the attractions business that resumed operations after about a year of silence, and also encouraged group tourism. The Ministry of Tourism says that domestic tourism, as in most countries of the world, continues to be a key anchor that preserves the tourism infrastructure in 2021.

Minister of Tourism, Orit Farkash HaCohen: “In recent months, I have worked hard on the important and critical outline for returning tourists to Israel. Without them, the tourism industry would not return to normal. At the same time, and like many countries in the world at this time, we are launching a broad campaign to encourage domestic tourism: Residents of Israel, you are invited to enjoy the sites of the country, the reception of the many accommodations and experiences between Dan and Eilat. The campaign will encourage a short mid-week vacation, especially in cities that are based on tourism, and have not yet returned to routine, such as Jerusalem, Nazareth and Haifa. Your short vacation is a refreshing breeze and supports both your health – and the tourism industry in Israel. Go for a walk! Have a nice holiday and a good livelihood! ‘

Hila Gur, Director of the Domestic Tourism Division at the Ministry of Tourism: “The tourism industry has been dealing with closures, restrictive guidelines for a long time and recently also events that interrupted the ministry’s efforts to drive tourism activity in the period between the spring and summer holidays. The office provides assistance to the industry during the period when it is required. The campaign is designed to stimulate the desire to get out of the routine. Tourist cities in Israel have to offer entertainment that does not fall short of tourist cities abroad.
