Trave to Iraq?
Iraq is one of those countries that is sure to boom once stability has been regained and am sure has much culture and sites to enjoy for the independant traveler, like Vietnam I have no doubt this will be a destination of the 21st century should peace be maintained.
The birthplace of many of the Earth's oldest civilizations.
Iraq has been home to continuous successive civilizations since the 6th millennium BC. These civilizations produced the earliest writing, literature, sciences, mathematics, laws, and philosophies of the world; hence its common nickname, the "Cradle of Civilization".
WARNING: Baghdad is an extremely dangerous city. It is considered to be in the current war zone. Bombings, killings and severe acts of violence are notorious and can randomly happen. Under no circumstance should any tourist visit.
Once one of the greatest centres of learning and culture in the Islamic world. Once a favored destination on the 'hippie trail' and packed full of sights; since the "war on terrorism" of 2003, Baghdad has since become one of the most dangerous cities on Earth.
