In search of your next perfect summer getaway or winter escape? Why not put Palestine on the map; the United Nations World Tourism Organization has!

A report compiled by the UNWTO has revealed that the Middle Eastern country is one of the world’s latest hot spots for vacationers in 2017.

The political instability of Palestine sure hasn't been putting visitors off from exploring the country’s rich history and culture, nature, shopping, hospitality and delicious food.

Besides all those wonders, we suspect Banksy might have had something to do with Palestine's surge in tourism.

The anonymous British graffiti artist opened the politically-charged “The Walled-Off Hotel” in Bethlehem last year.

Surrounded by the Israeli Separation Wall from the outside and adorned with Banksy’s art inside, the boutique hotel is expected to welcome more than 630,000 holidaymakers by the end of the year.

Still on the fence? After seeing these photos, you might have a change of heart.
