Palestinian Territories Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 22%, the Palestinian Territories lie at the heart of one of the world's most enduring conflicts. For generations the idea of an independent Palestinian state has hit roadblock after roadblock, leading to much conflict with Israel and making it a destination that has been avoided by many. However, this couldn't be a bigger mistake as the area includes some of the most religiously significant destinations to be found anywhere in the world. They include the cities of Bethlehem, where you can visit the birthplace of Jesus at the Church of the Nativity, and Jericho, which claims the title as the oldest town in the world. If PlanetHoppers! can avoid the region's conflict, Palestine offers a bounty of rich and historical sites to visit.
