Even though the main entrance is Jaffa Gate, this is definitely one of the busiest ones and most important ones. Different to Jaffa Gate, stairs descend towards the gate which gives you a great panorama of whats going on there. This gate looks basically like the entrance to a market, but if you take the first intersection to the right, it will take you to the Holy Sepulcher Church. There are lots of places to get souvenirs, just remember that arabs like to bargain, so dont take the first deal you get because it will be most likely that they are trying to rip you off. Outside Damascus gate there is a bus station which takes you to several places nearby, like Bethlehem. So why pay 90 usd for a tour? Bethlehem is a safe place and Palestinian people are very friendly and welcoming.
