Resort of fun

In Eilat, all you can do is to have fun... when you get there it looks like there it seems that all the people are tourists altough there are about 50000 inhabitants.
Eilat is a city with style... there are huge hotels, cool malls, beautiful girls in the beach and a lot of entertainment options... all that make Eilat as a place with great atmosphre.
In the surrondings of Eilat you can go to the Timna Valley Park or even to Jordan where you can see the city of Aqaba and visit see the engraving in Petra, at the other side you can go to Taba in Egypt.

Young people at the Red sea

Most of the people who visit Eilat are pretty young.... so everywhere you go, at least by night there will be music and it will look ver colorful... :))

The Coral World, Underwater Observatory

In Eilat you will find one of the most beautiful Underwater Observatory in the Middle east... its situated in a beautiful park with houndresds of aquarium and a tower where you can take a view to Aquaba or you can go underwater and see animals and plants in thier natural habitat.
You can also go to a glass boat which takes people underwater (dont worry, its covered) and from there you can see the beautiful colors of the Red sea.

    The pyramid called IMAX is actually a theatre that uses a screen that is 5 stories tall. We have one in my hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. But I have never seen one in the shape of a pyramid before.

    Looks a bit artificial with lots of concrete, but the sea and the underwater world looks promising. Great presentation, Edvin!
