Ashdod is a city on the Mediterranean coast of Israel, halfway between Tel Aviv and Gaza. It is one of Israel's busiest ports and has sixty per cent of all imports and exports passing through it. The port itself has origins dating back nearly 4,000 years and is the subject of numerous mentions in the Bible.
Ashdod has a number of shopping malls, while in Jerusalem's Muslim Quarter the ubiquitous Arab souks provide an antidote to the modern shopping centres of West Jerusalem. In the city's Old Jewish Quarter, specialist shops offer jewellery, carpets and leather goods. Best buys include precious stones, glassware, wine, religious items and silverware. Ashdod is ideally located for day trips to Jerusalem, one of the most revered cities on the planet for Jews, Christians and Muslims alike. Attractions range from religious buildings, emblems and archaeological relics, including the famous Wailing Wall. The Dead Sea is also within reach of a day trip from Ashdod and is ideal for those wishing to experience those therapeutic properties of the saline waters.
