  Abu Nuwas Tourist Complex
by hunterV

It was built in

Abu Nuwas Island
(once called Pigs Island)
in the middle of the Tigris.
It is made up of 40 furnished and air-conditioned apartments in groups of ten, each with bedroom, sitting room, kitchen and a TV.
The Complex has a large restaurant for inmates and visitors and a big swimming pool.
The woods around it were turned into beautiful gardens with places where mazgouf fish can be cooked in the open air.
Tourist ferryboats carry visitors to it down the Tigris.
They will find bands waiting for them on arrival every Sunday and Thursday. The bands play oriental and western music well into the night.
