Sarah Irving's Guide to Palestine will support and enrich the visit of any curious and conscientious traveller to the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Palestinian communities in Israel.

As well as a neat encapsulation of both the more distant and recent historical context to the current geography of the Occupied Territories, this book really shines in its warm insight into Palestinian daily life and some excellent food recommendations. Not least Afteem's falafal in Bethlehem, and Yafa Cafe in Jaffa, Tel Aviv - an absolute gem where we feasted on Makloubeh ("Upside down" rice dish) and Taybeh beer.

All we felt was missing was a map of the entire region, not just area by area.

But all in all this book is priceless and you'll be fighting over it with your fellow travellers...

This comprehensive travel guide brings Palestine alive and is a must for the independent traveller who wants to explore this fascinating land but also understand the history and the narrative of its people.

Purchased this as a gift for a family member who is travelling to Palestine early next year and it is perfect. Gives great information and where to go and what to see as well as information about local currency, traditions and customs etc.

Excellent guide by a person committed to the area. See her website for local places to stay. Unfortunately some of the links no longer work, but I wouldn't blame the author for this.

Excellent! Well needed. For historical information and keeping the truth available for travelers away from the Zionists theft of the Palestinian history.

A little bit out of date but still the most comprehensive guidebook to the Palestine territories
