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 travelers 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.
Sarah Irving first visited Palestine in 1996 and has been traveling back to the West Bank ever since. She works as a human rights observer, tour guide and independent writer.
