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.Go for a jaunt from Baghdad to Karbala to see Shrine of the two sons of Muslim Ibn Aqeel about 1h 50 min away. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at The Iraq Museum, buy something for everyone on your list at Al Mansur Mall, find something for the whole family at Zawraa Park, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Al Yassin Mosque.
