I'm spending a few weeks in Jordan starting December 21. Given the proximity to Christmas, I'm interested in going to Bethlehem and Jerusalem from December 24-26 or so just to see the festivities. I'll be in Amman from December 21-24. Will it be difficult to get from Amman to Bethlehem on December 24, stay there the night, head to Jerusalem on December 25, stay the day there, then return to Amman on December 26?
My specific questions are:
(1) Will the border crossings be worse than normal around this time of year?
(2) Will it be harder than normal to book bus travel this time of year? What buses are the best to use?
(3) Best time of day to leave and return?
(4) Any other tips?
Thanks very much in advance and sorry if these questions have been answered before, but I couldn't find anything specific to the Christmas holiday time period.
can you tell me if it's best to fly from Amman to Tel Aviv or do the crossing via the King Hussein bridge? my father and I are us Citizens and would like to make this crossing as simple as possible.
I am planning to stay for 6 months in Ramallah. But i also want to visit Safad, Jerusalem, Akka.. I thought that it will be better if i enter thou Jordan, because i want to stay in Ramallah.

I am wanting to volunteer in palestine for a long period of time (around 3 months). I will ONLY be doing humanaraian work (in a learning centre) but i really fear that i will be blacklisted when i leave. is that likely and if so has anyone got experience of this? does it affect your travel to other countries or even being able to migrate to other countries (outside of israel)
thank you in advance :)

Hello, I plan on traveling into the Westbank through ground for tourism. I am an American citizen and lived there all my life, although I do have an Arab background (Non Palestinian). Would there be any chance of Israel denying me entry?
Thank you in advance!

I've talked to several people and seem to get varing answers. I have the opportunity to work in Ramallah for a month, however as a very western looking american female I'm converned about safety issues. Is Ramallah a safe place for a single female? How are other areas of the West Bank with regards to the acceptance of a professional female? I have been told not to go out alone at night, but day light hours are ok. Also, would I need to wear a head scarf? How to locals react to single american females?
Hello, I'm a canadian citizen just going to ramallah for vacation for three weeks very soon. We are landing in jordan and taking the Allenby bridge. I was wondering if there is anything specific we need to worry about. We are simply landing in jordan and going straight over the border, and then leaving from jordan at the end of the trip. We are staying in Jifna/Ramallah for most of the trip. Can anyone offer any advice or tips? I have been reading things about needing visas, etc, but I am not sure, considering our canadian citizenship, and brand new passports, that we will encounter any trouble or need more documentation. Also, what is the best and cheapest way after hopefully crossing the border, that we can get to our hotel?

I am planning on going to Jericho in August of this year. I was told that the easiest way to get into Jericho is through Tel Aviv. On the other hand, I have also been told that most likely I would have to take two taxis to get there. I have thought about going through King Hussein Bridge in Jordan which maybe longer but I won't have two taxis. Any suggestions?

I am Australian and my travel buddy is from the US. We are staying in Amman for a few days and have a free day in the middle. We thought we might go over to West Bank to have a look at some sights. Do you think this is possible, or too much hassle with border crossings and hire cars etc. Alternatively we could go somewhere near Amman where we could see the West Bank. Is this even an option do you think? Thanks..
Hello! I am a Canadian female planning to continue my study of Arabic at Birzeit University this summer (2013). Does anybody have any advice regarding my intention to undertake this trip? Would it be safer for me to study at the U of Jerusalem or U of Tel Aviv, for example?
Hi, my boyfriend and I are planning to travel in Palestine this April and have heard from some places where we have tried to book a room that unmarried couples are not permitted to share a room and that marriage docs are required as proof of marriage. We seem to have found a couple of places to stay that seem fine with it but are now concerned they will split us into separate rooms on arrival. Is this an issue anyone else has come across or knows anything about? (Is not mentioned in the Palestine Bradt guide. . .)
Many thanks, Hetty
I'm planning to go for a 2 or 3-month-internship in Ramallah this summer. I have a french passport and I was born in Lebanon. I guess I would have problems if I go to Ramallah through Tel aviv, so I was thinking about going through Amman. Is their a simple and safe way to go from Amman to Ramallah ? And otherwise, is it possible for me to go through Tel aviv and have a visa in israel, pretending to have a tourist trip ?
Thank u !
Is it possible for an Australian to get a visa into Gaza border entry from Egypt and back again?
From reading I see that I might be able to come in from Egypt when the border is open. I wish to visit to research history from a local view in order to write a book about Gaza history, Is it possible to rent a modest room in a family home? How long could I stay with a typical visa? I am studying Arabic but want to know if I can get by with English as well. Also, is it safe for a single old person, i.e., not likely I'd be kidnapped or killed? Sorry if that is insulting but better to ask than to wonder.
I'm keen to head to west bank from Amman, i think by crossing the allenby bridge, and spending some time in bethlehem, and then fly back home from tel aviv, how easy is this? i have a british passport which keeps me out of trouble normally!!
me and my spouse are about to embark on a trip to Palestine and Israel. We would very much like to see both sides of the story and wonder if anyone has had any experience with guided tours through the West Bank, that are informative, analytical and if possible not too biased.
Thanks a lot!
