Iraq is a country that has been ravaged by war.

But after the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003, Iraqi Kurdistan has seen less of the sectarian violence than the centre and south of Iraq.

And while, disputed areas are still dangerous and a no-go, for the most part you are free to travel on the open roads.

I travelled to the region to visit the side of Iraq outsiders seldom see.

One thought on “BBC World: Will there be a tourist revival in Iraq?

  1. Well I certainly hope to travel there one day – so I hope so! It looks beautiful, and I can’t imagine that it will ever be so overwhelmed by tourism that its scenery will be ruined, given how relatively remote it is. Perhaps, in some way, when the conflict finally ends there will be a chance for renewal rather than simply revival.
