Baghdad— 7 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.Take a break from Baghdad with a short trip to Shrine of the two sons of Muslim Ibn Aqeel in Karbala, about 1h 50 min away. There's much more to do: examine the collection at The Iraq Museum, get some fabulous bargains at Babylon Mall, pause for some photo ops at Al-Mutanabbi Statue, and don't miss a visit to Baghdadi Museum.
