Full Description 

We’ll pick you from you hotel to Ramallah and start with the tour that will introduce you to the political situation in Palestine and how it manifests itself in the daily lives of Palestinians and in the built fabric. We’ll start by visiting al Am’ari camp, which is located in east of Ramallah, where an estimated of 6000 refugees live. Close to it, is the Kalandia checkpoint and the contested separation wall. The checkpoint is the main entry point between the west bank and Jerusalem. Since its inception in the 2000s it has been considered a predicament in Palestinian daily lives. We later visit Anata and Shu’afat refugee Camp and get to learn about Palestinian lives in Israeli governed areas. Afterwards, we’ll head to Abudis and visit Al-Quds University, where you’ll get a bird’s-eye view of the separation wall. We’ll end our tour with a satisfying local lunch.
