Tel Aviv is one of the world's top 10 summer party destinations, according to a popular travel website.

HotelsCombined.com, one of the world’s largest online travel sites, added Tel Aviv to its 2011 list of cities where the summer fun never lets up.

The “city that never stops” is “home to some of the hottest nightclubs in the Middle East,” the review raves. The Israeli hot spot boasts a “steamy nocturnal playground” that is “not for the faint of heart.”

Israel’s showcase on the Mediterranean comes ninth on the site’s list, behind Ibiza, Berlin, London, New York, Las Vegas, Miami, Amsterdam and the Greek isle of Ios, and just ahead of Reykjavik, Iceland. With 22 hours of daylight in the summer, the Icelandic capital -- “famous for its music scene and crazy Friday night pub crawls known as runtur" -- might seem to have a built-in advantage.

Tel Aviv can add this most recent accolade to its No. 3 spot on Lonely Planet’s list of 10 top travel destinations for 2011, just behind New York and Tangiers.
