Baghdad— 8 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.Change things up with a short trip to Shrine of the two sons of Muslim Ibn Aqeel in Karbala (about 1h 50 min away). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at The Iraq Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Al Yassin Mosque, buy something for everyone on your list at Al Mansur Mall, and appreciate the history behind Al-Shaheed Monument.
