Beautiful nature reserves, barren and culturally interesting regions, valleys and mountains are evidence of the uniqueness of the landscape of Palestine.

While modern, popular music is widespread, traditional folk tunes-like ala dal’ona and zareef at toul – are still an important part of life in Palestine.

Folk tunes are often performed at big festivals, folk dances, and weddings (both during the zaffeh, when the bride is brought to the groom’s house, and the sahra, the evening festivities that occur the night before the actual wedding). Local musical scholars and performers, who work to preserve these traditional melodies, can also be heard playing songs of the past. Some of the traditional Palestinian musical instruments are the oud, shebbabeh, rababeh, mijwez,yarhgoul, nay,buzuk, and the qanoun.

Palestinian handicraft designs are heavily influenced by its culture. Knowing that Palestine is the heart of the Holy  land, many handicrafts are designed as souvenirs for pilgrims and tourists visiting the holy places.
