Best Time To Visit Iraq:
Clothes to wear when travelling to Iraq: Long, loose clothing in natural fabrics is advised for summer months. Medium-weights are advised during the winter. Modest dress is advised, especially for women - upper legs and arms, shoulders and cleavage should be covered. A headscarf can be useful for extra coverage, and is essential for visiting mosques. In Iraqi Kurdistan dress for women is very western; in the towns in the north at least half of the women do not wear headscarves and wear western fashions though this does not include short skirts, shorts or obvious cleavage.
