The shopping center in the West Bank

The city of Ramallah is a vibrant center of culture and shopping activity in the West Bank. It is also the place where the Palestinian National Authority has its headquarter. Before the Intifada, the influx of people into the city was greater than today. But maybe because of this fact and the impossibility of its residents to go somewhere else for entertainment, that Ramallah has many places where you can have a nice afternoon. Restaurants that offer Arabic, Chinese, and even Mexican food!, shops of all kinds, and cultural centers. Do not forget to bring your shopping bag when you visit Ramallah. Prices are lower than in Israel; moreover, you contribute to the economy of the local people, that has been severely damaged during the last years.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The most important shopping and cultural center in the West Bank.
  • Cons:Signs for motorists are not clear or do not exist at all, so it is hard to find your way.
  • In a nutshell:Drag your shopping bag and spend a nice day in this city!
