About this book
Go on a pilgrimage to the sites of Christ’s birth and burial, stroll through Nablus’ bustling souk and follow with a relaxing soak and smoke in the city’s traditional hammams, or visit cosmopolitan Ramallah and its international arts centre. Bradt’s Palestine is for independent travellers who want to see beyond the conflict-focused reporting of the area and ethnic and religious stereotypes. The only mainstream guide dedicated solely to Palestine, it offers unparalleled detail on Palestinian culture, cuisine, wildlife, environment, history and politics. The ‘Palestinian Territories’ of the West Bank and Gaza are featured along with the culturally Palestinian (Israeli Arab) enclaves found within Israel.
