While the neighbouring countries receive plenty of visitors, Palestine is still undiscovered by many. Recognised as an observer state of the United Nations, Palestine is a captivating place. Of course, the Gaza Strip is strictly off-limits for visitors, but the West Bank is relatively peaceful and easy to travel to.
There are a few places to consider. Bethlehem is where the site of Jesus Christ’s birth can be found as well as some Banksy art on the controversial Separation Wall. Then there is Jericho (one of the oldest cities), Nablus (the best sweets in Palestine) and Ramallah, the most affluent and liberal city.
