Where To Eat

There are shops selling snacks and cold drinks, and in neighbouring Al Ramm you will find small restaurants serving up traditional Palestinian food such as shawarma and falafel.

Where To Stay

The nearby cities of Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Ramallah all have a great number of options when it comes to accommodation.
