Beer in Tel-Aviv is extremely expensive.
Israeli breweries are generally expensive, but in Tel-Aviv you can pay as high as 50NIS for 0.5L of local beer.

Cost of living in central Tel Aviv for a family with two kids - in OK quality (middle class +) with rent is according to my esitmate at least 8,500 US$/month or 30,000 Shekels.

And I am not talking about living in a villa, or driving a Merceds.

I am talking about living in a comfortable 110 sqm flat close to the city center + having a simple OK car for the family (Peugeot 308 for example).

It will cost around the same in a good residential village in west Emek Hefer - around 30 KM north of Tel Aviv. Just with a bigger house.

In exclusie residential areas it should cost much more. With older kids it might cost more as well. Tel Aviv is expensive.

LARISA on Jan 11, 2018:

A crappy 2 BR condo for 850K USD, no thank you.
Eran on Feb 01, 2017:
Try buying coffee in LA at Starbucks - you need to take out a second mortgage. In Melbourne Australia it can cost $US30 or more to park in the city for a day. Sydney is twice as expensive! Tel Aviv is great if you like the nightlife - otherwise, for a cheaper option, maybe Gaza?

A meel In MacDonald it's more than 15 dollar...

Price per square meter to buy apartment is way too much.

A 280 square meter house can be constructed for around NIS 1,400,000. (without the land).

This is around NIS 5,200 per square meter.
