Iran

My itinerary and my costs for 15 days travelling in Iran

Are you travelling to Iran? Are you crazy? Why are you willing to go there? Inevitable questions when you tell someone Iran is your next destination. Obviously I had no clue either about what to expect as you only read the negative stories about this country in the news.

A great sleepy desert village in Iran

There a lot of influences that make you decide what you are going to do and where you are going. Plans change constantly while travelling! Unfortunately I got pretty sick in Esfahan, which made me stay there a couple nights longer.

Is it Esfahan or Isfahan? I asked around in town and got different answers. But however it’s spelled it’s a famous city with a history that goes back a long time. Esfahan is Iran’s number 1 tourist destination and I was about to find out why.

Why Qom is worth going

On our second day I travelled down South to the city of Qom. It’s not in everyone’s itinerary as the fast growing city is not really appealing.

Why 1 day in Tehran is enough!

Arriving in Tehran started with a horrific taxi ride from the international airport to the city center. I was offered a pick-up from the hostel in Tehran and looking back I was glad I paid the €25. I have seen bad traffic, lack of respect and crazy things happening on the road throughout Asia, but Iran will definitely end up high in a list of insane traffic around the world.
