Just a quick question... is it a bad idea to arrive in Tel Aviv on Oct. 01, during the Shmini Atzeret/Simchat Torah?
I'm asking this because I want a full month of vacation and the Air Transat flight I have found is way cheaper (like 300$ cheaper than Air Canada) than other flights (and to have a full month, there are no other flights arriving later than that).
I know that public transportation will not be operating... but besides that, would I miss much?
I plan to stay in Tel Aviv the first few days anyway.
So would I be able to get from the airport to my hotel? Would I be able to check in at my hotel? Eat in restaurants? Visit some attractions? Or is everything closed and I should consider another date?
