Baghdad— 1 night
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.Kick off your visit on the 2nd (Fri): get in on the family fun at Zawraa Park, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Al Yassin Mosque, and then appreciate the history behind Al-Shaheed Monument. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: pause for some photo ops at Al-Mutanabbi Statue, see the interesting displays at The Iraq Museum, and then browse the different shops at Al Mansur Mall.
