New initiative by Palestinian youth for boosting tourism

Published on : Thursday, March 16, 2017

Palestinian youthYoung Palestinians have launched a new idea for encouraging tourists to visit the archaeologically-important town of Sebastia, north-west of Nablus in the occupied West Bank. Tourists who book their tours with Donkey Tours will get to develop their knowledge of the area. According to Raouf Hawwari, Palestinian activist and the initiative’s co-founder, “Using these icons of Palestinian rural areas is a qualitative addition to this type of tour.” He said that the company wishes to educate common people about the archaeological areas in the town of Sebastia and protect them from Israeli efforts to hijack its history.

The tours start from the ancient town of Sebastia, passing along a path through stone columns and archaeological areas. Tourists then go through Masoudiya, which used to be an Ottoman railway station, ending in one of the region’s beautiful valleys. Altogether, the tourists will cover around 20 kms in 7 hours. Along the way, they will get to savor traditional Palestinian food. The town’s landmarks are a number of archaeological sites dating back to ancient periods.
