Israel & the Palestinian Territories - West Bank (Chapter)
This is the West Bank chapter from Lonely Planet’s Israel guidebook.
‘Welcome’ is a word you hear a lot in the West Bank. Whether it is shouted by a street trader in a bustling souk, expressed with a smile over a plate of felafel or roared from a taxi over booming Arabic music, Palestinians are forever wanting to make tourists feel appreciated. The West Bank may not be the easiest place in which to travel – but the effort is richly rewarded.
