Experience in Baghdad, Iraq by Laith

What is it like to live in Baghdad? Would you recommend it? What is the city like?

Living in Baghdad these days is very hard for a foreigner, security, traffic, weather all are obstacles in front of lots of Iraqi. Baghdad was a city but after the Invasionو it has became like a big prison.


How much does it cost to live in Baghdad?

It's very expensive to live in Baghdad these days: no houses, few spaces with increasing number of students and new families and add to that the costs of energy and transportation. It may cost at least 500$ without other expenses, like food and other stuff.

Is it difficult to find accommodation in Baghdad? Is there any advice you can give?

Hard, yes, and you may not find any.

What is the food like? What are your favourite dishes?

Food is the best: restaurants are good, my best is the chicken wings.

What places would you recommend visiting in Baghdad?

None right now.


Is it good to eat out in Baghdad? Can you tell us your favourite spots?

Yeah, it's good and I vote for Mzaya in Almansur Street, the restaurant is good.

Is the nightlife good in Baghdad? Where is good to go?

Not, nowhere in these days.

What advice would you give future students headed to Baghdad?

Stay safe.
