Most people use Arad as their base for visiting the Dead Sea or Masada, but if you have 1 or 2 extra days to spare, give this lovely town a chance and you'll find a few interesting sights.

If that doesn't convince you, there's always the possibility of the famous BBQ's at the Sampson residence.

2 cuddly creatures

These 2 cats are members of the Sampson family and their names are Simba and Nala. They're 2 of the cuddliest cats I've ever met and they demand that you pet them - or else!

VT sightings at Masada

This ranger at Masada was kind enough to pose with Martin and me. He works at the west gate of the complex.

    Great tips on Arad and environs. Sorry to see that Masada has become so expensive!
