Beitunia is an industrial city just 3km south of Ramallah, where many of its workers commute from daily. There is a huge amount of industry and commerce taking place, but there is also a pleasant urban area as well.
The rather pretty old part of town is home to some beautiful historic buildings, fountains and the Salah El Dein mosque, which has three floors. Many Palestinians live in Beitunia as it is cheaper than Ramallah and Al Bireh, the only two bigger cities in the governorate. A service taxi between Ramallah and Beitunia costs just 3 shekels.
Of course, Beitunia is vastly different from Ramallah in that it is very much a working town, and not the kind of place tourists flock to. It is also just 14km north of Jerusalem.
