Visa requirements for visiting Erbil

Best things to do and see in Erbil

What can you see and do in Erbil?

This city in the Kurdistan region of Iraq has many attractions that are mostly centred around its ancient citadel. As a UNESCO World Heritage site, there’s plenty of history to soak up and museums to visit, like the Kurdish Textile Museum and the Erbil Civilisation Museum. It’s a small area, so most places are easily accessible on foot. Erbil’s main square, a common meeting place for local residents, is a great place to experience the culture and friendly characters of the city. Head into the covered bazaar and make your way through the narrow maze of stalls selling anything from fabrics to dried fruits. The Sami Abdul Rahman Park offers a peaceful break from the bustling city, where you can spend a whole afternoon lazing under the sun. As the night draws in, the Christian district, Ankawa, is a must for those looking to try out the city’s nightlife, with many Western-style bars and clubs populated by a large expat community more than happy to give travellers advice over a beer or two.
