I've been to arbil in 1997. It is a very, very beatifull kurdish city with a glorious history.
A problem for travellers is that it's very difficult to get into iraqi kurdistan.Since the 2nd gulf war, there is a kurdish republic which is completely independent from Bagdad. You can't get to kurdistan from Bagdad. If you travel through turkey, you will have to ask the turkish authorities for a special permission(turkish authorities can be quite slow)
Now that the saddam has been removed, it will get easilier to visit kurdistan.
- Pros:Very beautifull, nice attractions(castle etc.)
- Cons:too hot in summer, too cold in winter. The people there don't seem to like foreigners that much
- In a nutshell:nice city
Don't refuse a cup of tea!It may offend the host. Also in shops: never refuse tea! more travel advice
The bazar of Arbil is gigantic. You can find anything here from apples to brand new PS2 gaming machines.You shouldn't... more travel advice
