Abstract

Cultural tourism has been identified as one of the most important of the World tourism markets. Palestine crowds a vast treasure of cultural heritage sites and attractions and the level of competition in the region to attract cultural tourists is increasing and every country in the region tries to  represent  an area of significant economic benefit to  heritage  sites.  Each country in the region is looking carefully at their policies and management practices to focus on issues such as infrastructure and quality of services, partnerships and packaging opportunities, entrepreneurial approaches with the private sector, and at the meantime continuing to enhance the level of cultural heritage preservation. This paper aims to shed light on the importance of cultural tourism in Palestine and it attempts to suggest an outline for a viable tourism policies and strategy that lead to create a tourism development plan. The future plan will take into account the specific needs and development perspectives for the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and Gaza which seeks to a regional comprehensive tourism package. The suggested policies aim to increase future tourism economic development and positive social and economic outcome.
