"The Palestinian Capital?" Top 5 Page for this destination Ramallah by mafi_moya

Ramallah Travel Guide: 46 reviews and 98 photos

Although not the largest city in the West Bank, Ramallah is home to the Palestinian Authority and considers itself to be the capital. In days gone by it was known for its prosperity, good restaurants and great shopping... it's sometimes known as the Paris of the West Bank!

Visitors nowadays might be a bit surprised by that description but compared to the rest of the Palestinian Territories Ramallah is still relatively prosperous and unscathed. It's certainly hectic!

    Your Ramallah Page is great, honestly is so different from what I've heard in News. I wonder how was the feeling during Ramadhan in Ramallah.

    Thaks, Mafi, for making it possible for me to see the colorful life of Ramallah. I live so close, but cannot come...

    Better Ramallah as P. capital than Jerusalem , even though that would be too much of a salute to the Chief Terrorist of all times , ArafaRt.....

    Having visited with the Chairman/President in the Muqata earlier in 2000, it was intersting to see the changes that hat been wrought. Also, nice to see Life continuing in Ramallah despite all.
