  • Bethlehem

    It will be so easy to get to Bethlehem by bus or taxi. As for arriving at the airport, I doubt if you will be questioned at all. Now when you arrive at your departing airport for Tel Aviv, that's when you will be questioned. I have landed at Tel Aviv three times in the last four years and never once was questioned. All my questions happened at my...

  • Palestine welfare system.

    I have been interested in travel for a number of years. Recently I was talking to a member of a local Palestine twinning group. The Walsall/ Kobar twinning group. They were planning to go on a organized trip to Palestine, staying initially near to Bethlehem. Then moving on to Kobar the town with which they were twinned to Walsall. I joined the...

  • The real history of Palestine

    With regards to Fico's story about Palestine I think you will find there was never a Biblical Palestine as the country was named Palestine (Palestinia) by the Romans 135 years after Christ. It was then called Israel when Jacob changed his name to Israel.I would love to know where he got theses facts which are completely missing from any history...

  • With the Cellphone in Palestine

    If you want to stay in Palestine for a little longer, it's definitely worth buying a prepaied phonecard. You can get them easily everywhere - e.g. at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport. After friends recommendet Orange as provider, I bought a SIM-card there. It was around 100 NIS and loaded it with another 100 NIS. From that time on I had my own local...

  • Ramallah International Film Festival

    Over a week in July 2004 the biggest film festival yet held in the Palestinian Territories took place in Ramallah. Around 80 films from all over the world were screened as well as a competition for local young Palestinian film-makers. The fact that it happened at all was a bit of a miracle after projectors and various other equipment went 'missing'...

  • My fondest memory of Palestine...

    My fondest memory of Palestine is the drive to Masada hill (which is in Israel, but from Jerusalem the drive takes you through Palestine). If you get a chance to climb it at sunrise, go for it! Stunning.

  • ~Biblical Bethlehem~

    If Visit Bethlehem, try to go it alone & get there early morning or later in the day. It can get very busy when the tourist buses arrive. Try to arrange a visit to a refugee camp. Its a real eye opener, a lot of the hostels in Jerusalem old Arab quarter organise trips. My fondest memory of Palestine has to be the friendliness of the people there....

  • West Bank Drive

    If I could I would take someone for a long day trip driving up and down the rolling hills of the West Bank. You might get invited for a cup of steaming sweet, mint tea in a Palestinian village. Or, you might be approached and asked, suspiciously, what you're doing in an Israeli settlement. No matter what, you are bound to bump into some kind of...

    If you route passes through Judaea desert you may see Jericho - the capital of Palestine, located in the oasis of Judaea desert. It is the most ancient town on the Earth, it appeared 4000 BEFORE CHRIST! Once it was damned by God. Tourist business used to prosper here, but noe under the circumstances tourists do not stay here any longer.

    I worked in Palestine for one and a half year and I have grown a passion for the land and the people. Over a period of time you get lots of friends and lots of invitations. I wish I could have been more available, because its a memory for life. The situation in the Middle-East now (fall 2000) does grow some concern about the friends and families I...

    The soliders in Hebron are actually not happy serving their millitary service there, but are commanded around the West-Bank, Gaza and Israel. No matter the apperance, they are just doing a job and are as any other youth around the western world. Here two relativly happy soliders protecting settler kids in the city of Herbon. I spoke to a couple of...

    attend a wedding, I am so glad that my very good friend Marwan invited me to his and Amani's wedding. So if you stay there for a while and get to know the palestinian people. Make sure you say 'yes yes yes' if you are lucky and got an invitation to a wedding. Its a remarkable happening, the people are very open and the traditions not generally like...

  • Turkish Baths in Nablus

    Go to the Turkish baths in the Old City of Nablus. You can smoke argileh (water pipe) and sip mint tea along with it. Once my friends and I, about 12 of us, men and women, rented the baths for an entire afternoon. Women in first, then men. Of course we couldn't go in together, but that wasn't the point. Plus, there's a massuse (sp?) there as well....

  • Church of the Nativity

    go to the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem (pic). For us it was the only reason that we crossed the Israeli-Palestinian border, but it was worth it. It's all very touristy, but anyone who has some interest in religion will still be impressed by what's there. Or, more appropriately, of what isn't there anymore.

  • Nobbe's General Tip

    Modern Bethlehem is a major tourist attraction with all the accompanying commercialism that this implies. Bethlehem's real charm can be found in the side streets away from the square and pilgrim sites. The town and souq are a heady mix of ancient and modern, Muslim and Christian.
