#Pakal_Kafe: Neve Shaanan Lookout

Updated: May 3

Here's an interesting fact about Israelis - They like to take a #Pakal_Kafe with them on hikes in nature, or when they visit their nearby ma'ayan (spring). (or sometimes use them at home!)

Why do you ask? Well, simply because there is nothing more Israeli than enjoying the outdoors with a nice steaming glass of fresh coffee (*Don't worry, there is always emergency tea for the non-coffee drinkers).


>>> So we @iKonnect decided to hop on this trend!

The story

Neve Shaanan is a neighborhood in the South-East part of Haifa. This eclectic area is home to nearly 40,000 citizens from all parts of Israeli society.

The neighborhood is naturally bordered by the hills and mountains of Carmel. From the high spots, you can overlook the beautiful city of Haifa and the Mediterranean Sea.

What to expect?

The lookout spot is situated right near the Technion, one of the most famous schools in Israel, home to many of our country's great minds. From the lookout, you will have an amazing view of the western and northern parts of Haifa and a clear view of the sea. A great spot for a pakal kafe of course.
