The twin cities of Ramallah and Al Bireh are located only 16km north of Jerusalem. While these cities do not share in the wealth of religious shrines and sites as Jerusalem and Bethlehem, they still have a lot to offer visitors. You will find many past times that will make your vacation enjoyable.
First, the gastronomic scene in these two cities is among the best in all of Palestine. There are restaurants, bars, and cafes to suite any craving or taste. There are also many activities to choose from such as hiking, visiting parks, and even sitting in cafes to smoke an “Argela” or water pipe with some friends during the beautiful afternoons and evenings. There are many theaters, museums, and cultural centers throughout the cities.
Check out the Ramallah Cultural Palace and the Al Kasaba Theatre for shows and movies. On any given night, something is happening somewhere in the area. Do check out local listings for the latest updates and events. There are also several excellent hotels available with full facilities for leisure or business travelers. These two cities are home to most of the Palestinian Ministries, international and local non-governmental organizations, major banks, and business corporations.
