Road Trips in Israel and Palestine (Part Four) - The Wall

Jerusalem and Bethlehem are just a few kilometers apart. However, access between the two is limited by the fact that Bethlehem is under Palestinian control. For this reason, taking a local bus is the cheapest and most popular way for visitors to travel to the city of Jesus’s birth.

Our bus runs from the Arabic Bus Station at the Damacus Gate in East Jerusalem via Beit Jala to Bethlehem.




Totally different traffic situations in East Jerusalem. They are surprisingly quite close to each other.




The monstrous wall on Hwy 60, the West Bank’s main Jerusalem-Hebron highway.








An Israeli military checkpoint stands on the road connecting the two locations. Passports must be carried at all times.






The Hwy 60 viaduct at Beit Jala seen from above.


As one approaches the border crossing, he/she won't miss the huge warning sign for Israeli citizens entering into the West Bank.


By me.

Road Trips in Israel and Palestine (Part Five) - The Coastal Highway

Highway 2 connects the Greater Tel Aviv Area and the city of Haifa in the north. Since it runs along Israel's entire coastal plain of the Mediterranean Sea, so the highway is also called The Coastal Highway.

Hwy 2 is one of the busiest highways in the country, and drivers experience frequent traffic congestion between Hadera and Tel Aviv during rush hours. The northern sections are also congested at times, especially during weekends and holidays, when many Israelis travel north for vacation.


We're leaving Caesarea for Jerusalem via Tel Aviv.






The Mediterranean Sea is just ahead of us.










Herzliyya is known for its robust start-up and entrepreneurial culture. It's also one of Israel's most affluent neighborhoods and home to numerous Embassies, as well as prominent Israeli business people.




We're about to turn left onto Hwy 5 ...








... and after a few kilometers about to turn right onto Hwy 4.




Petah Tikva and Bene Beraq both belong to the Greater Tel Aviv Area, which has a population of more than 3.7 million people and houses about 45% of Israel's whole population. The latter one is one of the poorest and most densely populated cities in Israel, and sixth most densely populated city in the world.












We're approaching the Ben Shemen Interchange, one of the largest and most complex interchanges in the country connecting Hwy 1, Hwy 6, Routes 443 and 444, as well as several local roads.














Hwy 1 leads us all the way to Jerusalem.


By me.
