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. You can find an abundance of educational institutions and historical monuments, museums, and mosques filling the city, all of which make for enlightening tours of Baghdad. International visitors can only access the city's Green Zone, and the majority uses a helicopter or an armored vehicle to get from the international airport to this safe area, where you can find a shuttle bus that'll help you experience various sites of interest. When using our Iraq trip itinerary maker site to make an itinerary online, Baghdad holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
