Baghdad— 17 nights
It's quite possible that a Baghdad holiday isn't on your list of things to do, but despite the city's reputation for turmoil, it still has plenty to offer to a daring traveler.Step out of Baghdad with an excursion to Shrine of the two sons of Muslim Ibn Aqeel in Karbala--about 1h 50 min away. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at The Iraq Museum, don't miss a visit to Abu Hanifa Mosque, get some fabulous bargains at Babylon Mall, and pause for some serene contemplation at Armenian Orthodox Church - St Gregory The Illuminator.
