Kurdish Iraq is also known as the 'other Iraq'. Whilst Southern Iraq has seen the country descend into chaos and bloodshed since the 2003 War, Kurdish Iraq has flourished with massive economic development and a burgeoning tourist industry.
Suffering for decades under previous regimes, the Kurds now have an increasing amount of freedom and autonomy in Iraq and are extremely welcoming to tourists. The Kurdish region also has some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole of the Middle East with huge canyons, beautiful mountains and flowing rivers and waterfalls. The region has long been known in Middle Eastern literature as 'paradise on earth'.
