Bethlehem

For many, Bethlehem needs no introduction. A place of religious importance for Christians, Jews, and Muslims, Bethlehem tourism focuses on the holy sites across town. But far from the humble, little town described in Christian carols and scripture regarding the nativity, Bethlehem today has a real hustle and bustle to it, largely because of the vast amount of tourists who come here on day trips or for overnight stays. Finding hidden places to eat and buy authentic handicrafts along the streets of the old town represents one of the most rewarding challenges in present-day Bethlehem. Bethlehem is in West Bank. Plan your holiday in Bethlehem and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Palestinian Territories trip itinerary maker app .

Where to stay in Bethlehem

The main tourist traffic in Bethlehem consists of tour groups arriving from Jerusalem, getting a hectic tour of the town, and leaving. But Bethlehem's tangled streets house a number of accommodations worth checking out if you want to extend your stay beyond a brief look around. Located here, there, and everywhere, the hotels in town blend in with the rest of the buildings, so you should certainly plan ahead to make sure you know exactly where yours is. A couple of luxury choices have ornamental interiors, fine-dining restaurants, and pools, while standard hotels and guesthouses abound, along with a few backpacker hostels.
