Prices in the Gazan tourism sector have become even more expensive than world-renowned destinations such as Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt.

Holiday chalets, consisting of a private small house with a swimming pool and a garden, cost as much as $800 per day, or half the price or slightly less for 10 or 12 hours, according to Ibrahim Khaled, the founder of Naseem app for booking holiday chalets in the Gaza Strip. But despite the price, they have become very popular among families seeking short vacations, in light of the pollution on the Gaza beaches.
