Something you must do if you are one of these people is visit Basra at least once.

If you do visit Basra you ought to have a look at all four palaces. They belonged to the president and can provide a good insight into historic Basra. Then there is the indian bazaar and the five star hotel to visit. If you prefer religious history, you would be able to see the very first mosque which was built outside of the Arabian peninsula. For those who prefer a little more nature, you will not be disappointed. There are many different species of bird which pass over and through on their migration route as well as the Basra warbler.
