| The Northern part of Tel Aviv is an luxury residential area. It is divided into neighborhoods that are mostly a status symbol. The most known neghborhood in the area is "Ramat Aviv Gimel" because of an Israeli soap opera in that name that was shown during the 90's. Many people from outside Tel Aviv confuse to think that Ramat Aviv is the entire area.

The easiest way to mark the north in Tel Aviv is the Yarqon River, anything north of it is surely counted but also quite a few neighborhoods on the east joined it and are considered part of it as well.
The one part of the north that is not residential is Ramat Ha'Chayal. It's a business area that is quite small but filled with skyscrapers, restaurants and bars.
The "University Train Station" in Tel Aviv is located in the north so when arriving from other cities it's quite comfortable. If arriving from within Tel Aviv, the train is not recommended as it's way in the east of Tel Aviv and not very close to all the rest.
The best way to arrive from within Tel Aviv to the north is by buses. Some of the major buses are: 13, 24, 25, 47, 48. They go all the way from the south to the east and can get you close to most attractions in the area.
You can enter via the Ayalon (the main highway) or through Namir road (the continuation of highway 2). However, especially during the morning you should avoid entering Tel Aviv by car as many commuters are jamming the roads.
