Hi  Priscilla
Ebil is Good! One thing and first thing I noticed here is that the people are very friendly!
It's  peaceful too and there is night life here.
Erbil is more peaceful and crime free than most countries the news on air about kurdistan and the fighting here is being overblown.

Hi there, welcome to erbil, it is safe and sound here, the ramadan will be over after about 20 days, you can enjoy a good german beer at the german beer garden or hit Palmera for partying, in the day time just to know your way around, head down to the city center to see the citadel and have a look around just in case you need anything to buy, things are cheaper in the city center, in case of emergencies pay these hospitals a visit ( Rozh halat emergency hospital and Rozh awa emergency hospital), according to your location.

Regarding restaurants, most of them just charge for the food, except a few restaurants in 5 star hotels which have minimum charge.

There are a few gyms like (esporta) near Naz city .

Let me know if you want to know more


Indeed they're ok and very respectful folk, but Sulaymania is way better in terms of modernity, education, demographically diverse. Erbil is more tribal kind of society and I guess westerners will feel more relaxed in Sulaymania. Additionally, woman are way more free here than in Erbil, besides the safty.
Good luck!
PS. The abovementioned comment meant no promotion to neither sides by all means, merely a personal opinion based on former experiences.
