    the old city of jerusalem

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the old city of jeruslem is known among palestinians for its excessive prices. If you wish to get good deal prices go to Ramallah for shopping instead. It is much cheaper and not far away from the old city of Jerusalem.

    Rip off - tours to Bethlehem

    by Nicola2004 Updated Mar 20, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After getting lost in the old city of jerusalem on my own I decided to get a tour guide for a couple of hours who showed me around. At noon I thought it may be worth it to take a trip to Bethlehem and my palestinian tour guide wanted 300 Shekels for it!!! He alleged it would be very difficult and complicated to get through the checkpoint and that he would take me there. Thanks goodness I declined his "offer" and caught a bus to the checkpoint, walked through the wall and got a palestinian taxi on the other side. No complications, no difficulties, it was too easy! Alltogether I spent much much less than 300 Shekels and was shown around the entire Bethlehem area and some sights away from the town and met many nice lovely people there I wouldnt have met with an organized tour. By the way: This is also no problem for a girl travelling on her own.

    This picture surley speak for it self, especially nowadays I think it is not worthy to contact these guys for a chat. As I have heard, the West-Bank is closed for tourists these days (nov 2000), but just keep distance and ask before you 'shoot' at them with your camera.

    The Dead Sea is normally as calm as a mill pond, with barely a ripple disturbing its surface, but it can become turbulent. During most days, however, the water shimmers under a beating sun. where rocks meet its lapping edges, they become snow like, covered with a thick, gleaming white deposit that gives the area a strange, surreal sense like that of another world.

    All of it is a bit of a trap

    All in all, the whole Church is a major trap, but one that will make the visitor think about religion and its consequences in the Middle East. Still though, it was quite hard for me to imagine that Christ would have been born on a slab of stone, even though it's covered with marble (pic).

    The covered slab where Jesus was born
