Palestinian Territories travel guide

4.2
Historic Sites · Landmarks · Sacred & Religious Sites
Three entities occupied by Israel since the Six-Day War of 1967, the Palestinian Territories include East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip, and the West Bank. Although the political status of this area remains the subject of negotiations, tourist attractions in the Palestinian Territories continue to appeal to curious travelers from distant corners of the globe. A trip to this part of the world takes you back in time and allows you to discover numerous locations prominently mentioned in the Bible, including the Dead Sea, Bethlehem, and the Judean Desert. Many begin their tour of the Palestinian Territories in Ramallah, the area's de facto capital and an ideal place from which to explore the surrounding countryside.
