Palestine is a conventional name used, among others, to describe a geographic region between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River, and various adjoining lands.

As a geographical term, Palestine can also refer to 'ancient Palestine,' an area that includes contemporary Israel and the Palestinian territories, as well as part of Jordan, and some of both Lebanon and Syria. In classical or contemporary terms, it can refer to the area within the boundaries of what was once British Mandate Palestine, an area which included Transjordan. The term Land of Israel is used to refer to the same geographic region, both narrowly or broadly defined, by Israelis, Jews, and Christian Zionists, among others. Other terms for the same area include Canaan, and the Holy Land.


Palestine Tourism

The Palestine region forms one of the principal attractions in the world religious destination circuit. Palestine tourism consists of a number of historical structures like the ancient city of Bethlehem. The Palestinian cities like Jericho, Nablus and Hebron finds mention in biblical texts.

The unique selling point of Palestine tourism is the “Holy Land” tag associated with the West Asian autonomous territory. The area is the center- point of three world religions- Islam, Judaism and Christian. Jesus Christ was born here. The Bethlehem city attractions include the historical areas of BeitSahour and BeitJala. The Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem is another major attraction.
