Shopping in Bat Yam
If you would ask any Israeli where can you find some good shopping spots, Bat Yam won't be their first answer, however the locals will totally disagree. Although Bat Yam never had an image of the "shopping centre" of Israel it has a few shopping jams that can definitely compete with Tel Aviv shopping.
Bat Yam Mall
This big and modern mall was actually opened in 1993 and it is one of the oldest shopping malls in Israel. It is located on the main street of Bat Yam (Yoseftal Avenue) and it's easily accessed by bus or car.
This mall is a home for about 150 shops that include major Israeli and international fashion chains, pharmacies and cosmetics shops.
For those of you who like shopping – this place might take quite a few hours. But don't worry if you suddenly feel tired and need a bust of energy you can enjoy a nice cup of coffee in any of the coffee shops in the mall. For families traveling with kids, Bat Yam mall offers many entertainment shows, especially during the summer. There is also a movie theater complex at the mall.
