WASHINGTON, Aug. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Many hear about the Kurds in light of the recent crisis with ISIS. Unknown to many is that most reported news is taking place outside of the KRI. Like many places (Paris, New York and London), Kurdistan has had its security issues but is actually one of the most secure regions in the Middle East. This Guide is more than a beautiful pictorial of a fascinating land; it is a message to the world; Kurdistan is open for business and ready as always to receive guests from around the world.
Kurdistan is unlike the rest of chaotic Iraq, and is often referred to as The Other Iraq. Kurdistan is a land of rivers, lakes and snow-covered mountains, with an abundance of historical and archeological sites. Kurds are warm and friendly—eager to express the hospitality that has made them famous.
The 400 page Guide contains everything from how to get there to the photographically illustrated histories of nearly two hundred enchanting sites. There are fascinating articles by famous Kurds and International friends of the Kurds dealing with subjects such as the emerging Kurdish film industry, music, art, literature and even recipes for Kurdish food.
June 2015 - This Guide is extensive, up-to-date and carefully prepared. It is not only for the adventurous souls, but also for everyone curious to know more about this other side of Iraq. I have made three unforgettable trips to Kurdistan, in 2012, 2013 and 2015 - Laila Gustafsson, Sweden
