MOBILE HOTSPOTS: A historical park in northern Israel lets visitors surf the Web. A device slung around the donkey's neck like a feedbag is actually a Wi-Fi router.

ABOUT THE SITE: Kfar Kedem is meant to immerse tourists in an authentic, ancient biblical experience. Visitors decked out in biblical robes and headdresses ride donkeys through the rolling hills of the Galilee, learning how people lived in Old Testament times.

TIMING: The wireless donkey tour has been running for less than a week, but it is already a hit with visitors.
