Whether you are just passing through the Bethlehem district of a day or so, or whether you would like to stay and explore for several weeks, ATG can arrange home-stays that fit your needs. Contact us for details.
The Alternative Tourism Group offers an organized home-stay with local Palestinian families. Homes in the Bethlehem area were renovated and furnished as an accommodation facility for tourists and pilgrims. The purpose of this project is to give our visitors the chance to experience the Palestinian culture and hospitality by spending more time with indigenous people of Palestine. The standard of these accommodations was set according to the regulations and guidelines of the Palestinian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities. This Project was financed by the government of Japan and was implemented by the UNDP.
When you stay with a family, you will:
- Taste local traditional food
- Enjoy Palestinian folklore music
- Interact with local people
- Enrich your understanding of the Palestinian culture
- Extend your friendship circle
- Appreciate the Palestinian hospitality
