10 Best Places to Visit in Iraq

Traveling with the WORLD'S WORST PASSPORT (IRAQ)

► SUBSCRIBE for daily travel videos:

If you've ever traveled abroad before, then you've had it easier than this man named Baderkhan. He travels with an Iraq passport - the least powerful in the world, ranking 176 out of 176 in the Global Passport Index.

When I posted on social media that I was coming to Iraqi Kurdistan, Baderkhan immediately reached out and offered to host me for 4 days. We've had an incredible time together road tripping around his homeland -- which I find to be the hidden gem of the Middle East.

This is the story of Baderkhan's life -- as he travels the world on the weakest passport. It makes me feel guilty that I can visit 165 countries without the need to get a visa (compared to only 30 for him), but that only gives him more motivation to keep going and see every country in the world.

Thank you, Baderkhan, for being a role model and inspiration for your peers to follow their dreams. You are proof that anything is possible!

Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the travel bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this YouTube channel to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling! So we extended our 1 year trip to now FOUR years :) Now we have a goal of traveling to 100 countries before 2020! We are incredibly thankful to do something we love every day. :)

=======================================================

10. Faizabad
Located on the northeast part of Afghanistan, Faizabad was historically remote due to bad road connections, which has helped to its local culture intact. To the present day two bazaars still function in Faizabad where they trade diverse items like cotton cloth and cutlery and provisions like tea, sugar and salt. Part of the historic architecture is in ruins, but other forts, mosques and shrines are still intact and tell the history of the region.

09. Jalalabad
Jalalabad, in the eastern part of the country, is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Afghanistan thanks to the large green areas and surrounding water. It was an outpost for Ahmad Shah Durrani, the founder of modern Afghanistan, who used the city during his military campaigns in India. The architecture in Jalalabad is beautiful, from the Mausoleum of King Amanullah Khan to mosques and the Nangarhar University.

08. Samangan
Located in northern Afghanistan, the small town of Samangan used to be a medieval caravan stop. It was also part of the territories where Buddhist expansion reached around the fourth and fifth centuries. The place called Takht-e-Rustam on a hill near the town is a main example of the period’s architecture, with a mix of the Buddhist style. Every Thursday the weekly market takes place, an ancient traditional activity still preserved.

07. Bagram
Located north of the capital Kabul, the small town of Bagram was in ancient times an important passageway of the Silk Road for merchants coming from ancient India. The earliest mentions refer to a Persian settlement, followed by the Greek-influenced city planning and further Arab rulers.
06. Bamiyan
Located in central Afghanistan, Bamiyan is one of the last cities where the Buddhist expansion reached. Another culturally rich place, at the crossroads of East and West, Bamiyan’s archeology reveals a mix of Turkish, Greek, Persian, Indian and Chinese influence. Famous for the giant Buddha statues, destroyed in 2001, later discoveries in the area include a few caves with wall paintings from the 5th and 9th centuries and another giant statue,
05. Herat
Herat is an ancient city in western Afghanistan, with several ruins and historical places of interest, such as the Herat Citadel or the Mausoleum of Queen Goharshad. The Friday Mosque has been started as early as the year 1,200 AD and was completed throughout the centuries.

04. Mazar-e Sharif
Legend says that the city of Mazar-e Sharif owes its existence to a dream based on which a shrine was built and then gradually the entire city around it. It is mostly known by tourists as the Blue Mosque City, referring to the Shrine of Hazrat Ali in the center. Mazar-e Sharif is the capital of the Balkh province and a place historically part of several civilizations, which makes it multiethnic and full of interesting contrasts.

03. Kandahar
Alexander the Great founded the city of Alexandria Arachosia in 329 BC, on the place of what today is known as Kandahar. Afghanistan’s second largest city is one of the oldest known human communities, with an intricate history and culture. One of the most interesting places to see in Kandahar is the Friday Mosque of Kandahar, a holy Islamic place of worship considered of utmost importance in the country.
02. Balkh
Considered one of the oldest cities in the world, Balkh in northern Afghanistan was named by the Arabs ‘The Mother of Cities.’ At the crossroads between eastern Asia and the Middle East, Balkh was heavily influenced by the Buddhist culture before the Arab invasion. The ancient ruins of the city include Buddhist constructions and fortifications evoking the old Asian culture.

01. Kabul
The capital of Afghanistan and the country’s largest city, Kabul has a millenary history, as it exists for more than 3,500 years. Some of the city’s attractive sites are the Abdul Rahman Mosque, the Afghan National Museum and the historic park, Gardens of Babur. The Rahman Mosque is fairly new, having been inaugurated in 2012,

LEBANON Top 40 Tourist Places - Lebanon, Asia

Top 7 Countries in Asia!

Asia has been my home since 2013, when I moved to South Korea to teach English. Over the last 5 years, I've lived in Vietnam, the Philippines and currently Thailand -- and I've been to almost every country on the beautiful continent of Asia.

Each culture in Asia is very unique -- from religions to traditions, nature, history, cuisines and rituals -- and it provides endless opportunities to learn and discover. But above anything else, THE PEOPLE of Asia are the most hospitable and welcoming as they come.

Admittedly, it has been very hard to choose only 7 of my favorite Asian countries to feature in this video (because I truly love every place for a different reason) -- but when it all comes down to it, these would be my 7 favorite countries on this amazing place called Asia!

THE PHILIPPINES SOUTH KOREA, SINGAPORE, VIETNAM, NEPAL, INDONESIA, JAPAN

What would be your top 7 in Asia? Why? Please comment below and let's get the discussion started!

PS - I kept this video limited to East/South/Southeast Asian countries. While the Middle East and West/Central Asia are technically Asian countries, I consider them very culturally different. Iran and Tajikstan would be on this list if it was all of Asia!

DO THEY LIKE AMERICA? (Pakistan, Afghanistan & Iraq)

► SUBSCRIBE for daily travel videos:
► INSTAGRAM? Join me @drewbinsky!

There seems to be a negative stereotype that Americans (and other nationalities) have against the Middle East/South Asia - specifically in regards to AFGHANISTAN, PAKISTAN and IRAQ.

And I was eagerly curious to see if it's true the other way around.

So over the last month, as I've traveled deeply into these 3 countries - I interviewed 14 random people on the street and asked them, What are your honest thoughts about America?

I think you will be surprised by their answers.

Truth be told, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraqi Kurdistan have some of the most humble and hospitable people I've ever met, and it's about time that we chance our perception of these places!! Share this video if you agree.

TRANSCRIPT
I’m Sal Lavallo. I’ve been to every country in the world. And, today I’m gonna tell you about some of my favourite countries in the Middle East and my favourite experiences in each of them.

BAHRAIN
It was one of the first places that the British came and they already had this big fort there. It also has a lot of culture and a really great National Museum, I thinks one of the better museums in the Middle East. Not only does it have a big history part but it has a really nice contemporary art like centre. I also had you know fun time driving into the desert, have you heard of the tree of life or so the tree of life in Bahrain you drive desert desert desert and suddenly there is this huge green tree that people think is this anomaly. I think Bahrain in a lot of ways is an anomaly.

EGYPT
I one night ate pigeon and it’s actually pretty good. I was you know we ordered it, it’s somewhat common and it’s not, it’s fine, it’s like a small little bird it’s hard to get the meat off but you have to eat it with your hands. I kind of go through the bones, I wouldn’t recommend it. You know on a first date because you’re a little bit you know using your hands but it’s that was interesting that was a first for me. What I remember the most was that the pyramids are first time you see them are amazing and then you drive by them every day and it’s funny that something so incredible can become so normalized. I went to Luxor to see all of the temples there and it’s just you know they say that the pyramids were older to Cleopatra then Cleopatra is to the iPhone. That’s unbelievable right, to think that there’s that much history.

IRAQ
I spent my time in Iraqi Kurdistan and I think I was a little bit nervous to go there. I think a lot of places we get nervous since all in our heads and the second that I landed you know we were walking down the streets seeing everybody living their normal day lives, we got really really comfortable and it’s such a beautiful place. We ate a lot of kababs, we also ate a lot of fresh honey, we had to drank too much sugary tea, I think we are always like kind of had the sugar shakes, oh and the have like a big like bazaar and herbal that’s similar to like the Turkish Grand Bazaar and you can get all you know Turkish delight and tons of dried figs and dried nuts there. That’s really it’s kind of like a culinary heaven there in a way.

JORDAN
We went to Petra another really intense historical site that just kind of comes out of nowhere in the middle of the desert and then when we were leaving it started snowing and we got caught in a snowstorm which you again wouldn’t you know even I who had lived here for many years I sometimes, oh Middle East must be hot and you know we’re like deserts must be hot and that’s not true. It was so cold, snow everywhere.

KUWAIT
I thought it was such a pleasant city, I mean like palm trees and we went in like may be April so it was like perfect time weather-wise and all of our business meetings were really successful and everybody was really nice, so it was like a perfect experience.

Why I Don't Like This Country ????????

While I constantly try to find the positives in every place I visit, there are few places that I just simply didn't enjoy.

The country of Brunei is one of them.

I went to Brunei back in 2014, three years before I made videos, but my negative experiences in the country have stuck in my mind ever since. That, combined with its absurd human rights laws such as stoning to death LGBT members, I was pushed to make this video.

Have you ever visited any countries that you didn't enjoy? Please share below, I'm curious to know.

Visiting The Great Mosque of Samarra in Iraq and travel the death road.



The 120km from Baghdad north to the holy Shia city Samarra along the highway also known as the “death road” (not to be mistaken by the Highway of Death in Southern Iraq) by American soldiers after the 2003 invasion due to all the IEDs which was laced along the road.

In 2014 ISIS captured this area of Iraq, and the held it up to only a few years back, so there´s no surprise that´s there more than 50 checkpoints put up along the highway. Some often only a few hundred meters between.
