Looking for the perfect summer vacation spot? You probably didn't have the world capital of decapitation in mind, but that is exactly what the Islamic State is offering.

The terrorist group that has set up a caliphate in large parts of Iraq and Syria has issued a travel brochure, touting the land under ISIS control as a vacation hot spot, according to the Daily Mail.



The ISIS tourism brochure features photographs of jihadis jumping off cliffs into crystal clear spring water and enjoying swims in Olympic size pools.

Fishing, beekeeping and quiet pastoral landscapes are also highlighted in the brochure.



Of course women are not allowed to take part in the swimming and men must wear proper attire or face the consequences.

The brochure was released after ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi reportedly ordered the group's communications offices to cut out the most graphic scenes from beheading propaganda videos in an effort to improve the Islamic State's image abroad.
