The Palestinian authority and Israeli tourism ministries have attempted to work together on tourism in the Palestine territories.
The Gaza Strip is strictly off limits to travelers but the West Bank is repetitively safe to travel.
Travelers should dress accordingly when visiting Palestine and especially in areas of religious interest.
Take a trip to some of the most iconic places in religious history such as the church of the Nativity of Bethlehem. Built on the land of Jesus birthplace from the famous nativity story. The historical buildings bring in so many people for mass on Christmas eve. Visit the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, a 7th century shrine with a golden dome that towers over the city. Or the cave of the patriarchs , a Roman era shrine that is built over Abraham’s ashes.
