The region’s boundaries are commonly said to start with Herzliya at the north around Petakh Tikva to the east and Rishon Letsion to the south, a region that includes about 1.6 million inhabitants. But many people claim that the region should also include Rosh Ha’ayin to the East and Rehovot in the south making it a region with two million people and the most densely populated part of the country.

This is Israel’s entertainment capital and the center of gravity for business and shopping, with numerous theaters cafes, bars, museums and parks as well as amazing beaches, vibrant festivals and many historic and archeological sites of interest.
