Baghdad— 3 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.Armenian Orthodox Church - St Gregory The Illuminator and Al Abbas Holy Shrine will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Baghdad: Karbala (Tal Al Zainabeiah site & Imam Hussain's Shrine) and Babylon (in Al Hillah). Pack the 13th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Zawraa Park. There's lots more to do: examine the collection at The Iraq Museum, buy something for everyone on your list at Al Mansur Mall, look for gifts at Babylon Mall, and pause for some photo ops at Al-Mutanabbi Statue.
