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 guide 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. Sarah Irving first visited Palestine in 1996 and since 2001 has travelled between the UK and the West Bank. She works as a human rights observer, tour guide and independent writer.
